JK Govt backed Delhi in Afzal hanging: Aasiya
Srinagar, Feb 15: Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Syeda Aasiya Andrabi Friday lashed out at the state government for, what she said, besieging the whole population of Kashmir by imposing continued curfew following the execution of Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru.
“The state government not only supported and cooperated with the government of India in sending our great son of soil Afzal Guru to gallows but also imposed the continued curfew in entire Kashmir to overcome the peoples’ reaction against the execution,” said Aasiya in statement issued here today. She said the situation is worst in areas of Sopore and Baramulla.
“The armed forces have sealed all the roads leading to Shaheed Afzal Guru’s residence and the people are not allowed to venture out of their homes. People are subjected to tremendous suffocation by pepper-gas and teargas shelling,” Aasiya said.
Meanwhile, a delegation of DeM on Thursday visited the SKIMS Soura here and enquired about the injured, including the boy who has lost his eye in the teargas shelling by armed forces.
Expressing resentment over the statement of the chairman Press Council of India Justice Katjoo, the DM said: “It amply proves to what extent India is pursuing the policy of double-standards vis-à-vis people of Kashmir.”
Aasiya has strongly condemned the assault on Kashmiri students by the ‘goons’ at Dehradun and Delhi while they were peacefully protesting against the hanging of Afzal Guru.
