Malik aghast at killings
Srinagar, Sept. 7: Condemning the police firing at unarmed youth in north Kashmir’s Palhallan and Wusan areas that left four people dead yesterday, Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik Tuesday said the government and its forces had crossed the limit of oppression and would have to be accountable for all the "barbarity" committed on Kashmiris.
“Oppression when it reaches its high is bound to perish, and government forces have reached the highest point of oppression in Kashmir,” Malik said in a statement here.
He said it was ironic that the forces had killed innocent civilians at a time when Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh was assuring Kashmiris that police and troopers would exercise maximum restraint.
“A 17-year-old student and three others were murdered in cold blood by police and troops yesterday. Is this the maximum restraint that Manmohan Singh is talking about?” Malik questioned.
