Forces creating 1990 like situation: Zaffar
Srinagar, Jan 11: Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM) Chairman Zaffar Akbar Bhat on Friday accused the armed forces of creating situation like 1990 in Kashmir by harassing the innocent citizens and curbing their rights.
“Army have started a verification drive in Baramulla and Budgam districts, collecting information about family members, their photographs, house hold assets and livestock,” said Zaffar in a statement today, terming it a sign and symbol of colonial rule.
Zaffar claimed that he was apprised by the locals during his visit to Kawoosa and Narbal about the army move.
“Such methods are not permissible in any civilized society and if the move is not halted the people will oppose it,” Zaffar said while addressing public gatherings at Narbal and Kawoosa in district Budgam, adding that no law on the earth can allow to grant the permanent State Subject rights to refugees from west Pakistan. They are not Kashmiri and so there is no question of treating them as citizens of Kashmir.
