Govt probe into Rafiabad killing eyewash: Hurriyat (G)
Srinagar, Feb 13: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Monday termed as eyewash the government probe into the recent killing of a youth, Ashiq Hussain Rather by the soldiers at Rafiabad in Baramulla. It has demanded that the killing should be investigated by some impartial institution.
The Hurriyat leaders: Altaf Ahmad Shah, advocate Muhammad Shafi Reshi, Muhammad Shafi Lone and Syed Muhammad Shafi, according to amalgam statement, visited the residence of Shaheed Ashiq Hussain Rather on the instruction of its chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
Addressing the public, the Hurriyat leaders said, “No civilian, whatever his political ideology is, is safe in Jammu Kashmir. All the Kashmiris in the sight of armed forces deserve punishment.”
Terming as eyewash the government probe into Ashiq’s killing, the leaders said, “Such announcements are often made after civilian killings, but thereafter nothing is done. This has always been a ruse to pacify the peoples’ anger and to gain time. With the passage of time these cases are hushed up.” They termed the wailing of pro-India parties over such incident as crocodile tears. “Whether it is National Conference, Peoples Democratic Party or Congress or any other MLA, they are all responsible for the killings of innocent people,” they said, adding “there will be no let up in the killings until the whole Jammu Kashmir is demilitarized.”
Hurriyat leaders demanded that the killing should be probed by some impartial institution.
Meanwhile, another delegation of Hurriyat comprising general secretary, Ghulam Nabi Sumji and Muhammad Rafiq Ganai visited Islamabad (Anantnag) where they extended condolence to the families of Manzoor Ahmad Sodagar and Bilal Ahmad Khan. They prayed for the deceased and sympathized with the bereaved families.
