Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani, Tuesday said that rape and murder of minor girl in Kathua shook the collective conscience of people of Kashmir.

Blaming administration for their callous and careless approach, Geelani said instead of taking swift action against culprits, protesters and Gujjar leader who was leading protests against the gruesome incident were arrested, saying it illustrates their “bigoted mindset”.

Geelani expressed his heartfelt sympathies with the grieved family of deceased minor and lamented police authorities for their uncalled and unjustified action against the people participating in the Rasm-e-Chaharum of the victim.

Geelani expressed his anguish and denounced the “biased role of Indian media for their silence”, saying they make hue and cry over petty matters but in this case they maintained silence and turned blind eye.

Urging stringent action against those involved in her murder and rape, Geelani said that people are not satisfied and are still awaiting fair trial and demanding that the persons involved in the heinous crime should be dealt with firm hand and brought to book for their wrong doings.

Lashing out at state administration, Geelani said police leave no stone unturned while detaining innocents, however, those involved in rape cases are shielded and given free hand.
