Yasin Malik visits Sendbal
'Dar’s Killing Blot On Face Of Kashmiris'
Srinagar, Aug 7: The Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik Tuesday strongly condemned the killing of a youth in group clashes at Sendbal, Ganderbal, terming it “a blot on the face of Kashmiri nation.”
Expressing serious concern over the killing of Shabir Ahmad Dar, Malik said: “It is a serious incident and a shame for the whole nation. Nation should mourn this killing as it is the killing of humanity and against the teachings of Islam.”
Malik, according to a Front statement, along with other JKLF leaders including Advocate Bashir Ahmad Butt, Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Bashir Ahmad Rather (boya), Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri, Muhammad Sideeq Shah,Prof. Javed Ahmad and Gayas-ud-din went to Sendbal on Tuesday and expressed his deep sympathy with the bereaved family.
“This killing is a blot on the face of nation. Those who committed the crime are enemies of Islam,” Malik said, adding that “As a nation it is a matter of concern for us and a litmus test for Ulema and religious organizations. We have to rise above our petty interests and find a solution on how to curb sectarian clashes.”
For this very purpose, Malik said, the JKLF had organized a seminar a few days ago. “But unfortunately only some hours after the seminar this inhuman and tragic incident happened,” he said.
He said the gravity of the situation deserves a fresh and “keen look by all of us especially the Ulema and religious leaders and parties which have a much bigger role to play.”
Stressing the need for unity among Muslims, Malik called upon the Ulema, scholars, Imams and Khateebs of all Masalak to rise above their Maslaki considerations and interests and fight together all the conspiracies aimed at dividing Ummah in the name of Maslaks
Demanding stern action against the killers of Dar, Malik said: “The family of the deceased has lodged an FIR against the killers. We strongly demand that they should be booked under section 302 and stern punishment awarded to the killers so that no one in future dared to repeat such acts.” Malik also inquired about the injured persons.
Meanwhile, JKLF has expressed grief over the sad demise of Ghulam Nabi Dar father of famous lawyer Ahmad Dar of Mugal Mohala Hawl. A JKLF delegation led by Noor Mohammad Kalwal visited the residence of deceased and expressed condolences to the bereaved family.
