Srinagar, Mar 31: Expressing concern over rising crime in the society, the Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Thursday condemned the recent killings of civilians including National Conference activist by unidentified persons in south Kashmir.
“There has been manifold increase in incidents of crime in our society. The recent killing of civilians by unidentified persons indicates that our minds have been polluted to such an extent that we can’t even tolerate each other,” Geelani said.
He condemned the recent killings including of a girl in Kupwara and a contractor Ghulam Mohiddin Bhat in Tral. Bhat was a block president of ruling National Conference and was killed by unidentified gunmen on Wednesday.
“Islam teaches us to respect each other. Killing of even a person tantamount to murder of humanity,” he added.
“In Islam, a state has been authorized to award death sentence in unavoidable circumstances but there is no scope for an individual to kill any human being by himself ignoring judicial procedures and state authority,” he added.
I urge the Kashmiri society to develop tolerance and follow the teachings of Islam which teaches to respect each other,” Geelani said.
Meanwhile, Geelani’s spokesman said the veteran leader will address a gathering at Baramulla after Friday prayers at Masjid-Baitul-Mukaram Baramulla on April 1.
