Stop behaving like occupying power: Brinda to GOI
‘Kashmiris Outraged Over Denial Of Justice’
New Delhi, Mar 15: Advising the government of India to stop behaving like an "occupying" power in Jammu and Kashmir, CPI-M member Brinda Karat Tuesday said people whose children were killed in police firing in the state are outraged over "denial of justice".
Raising the issue during Zero Hour in the Rajya Sabha, Brinda said 117 people were killed in police action during the summer 2010 unrest in Kashmir but not even a single constable has been punished.
She said the government should "stop behaving like occupying people."
Four MPs including Karat had recently gone to Srinagar to attend a women's conference where the problems faced by the people of the state were narrated to them. The conference was organised by the Centre-appointed interlocutors.
She said there was "outrage" among people who said justice was not given to them.
Karat said of the 117 cases, only 37 FIRs have been registered and no independent inquiry was conducted in a time bound manner.
"Even today, young people are being called to police stations and threatened and detained. Women say that every time they enter universities, they are asked to show their identity cards. They are asking is it not their own country," she said adding that it was "militarization of the entire Valley".
