Dukhtaran-e-Millat Tuesday strongly denounced the "excesses" by police and other armed forces at Ruhmu village of Pulwama district.
"In Ruhmu Pulwama, these ruthless personnel fired hundreds of bullets and pellets besides used indiscriminate tear gas shelling upon the civilians including men, women. They dragged women by their hair and used massive force against them. With the result the eyes of three innocent young girls were hit by pellets besides scores of others received serious injuries," the DeM secretary general Nahida Nasreen, in a statement today, said, adding that "People are being treated like animals by these so-called disciplined brave personnel. Don't these inhuman actions shake their conscience?"
"On one hand, the government is faking sympathy towards student community by talking about education and, on the other, pellets are fired to disable students for life. Indian political agents and their media are giving so much hype to the issue of education that as if there is no other major issue prevalent here. Indian propagandists have launched a campaign for this and have forgotten that hundreds of school going children have been rendered visionless and still children are being targeted with pellet guns," Nasreen said, adding that "While Mehbooba Mufti is busy celebrating Diwali in Jammu, children in Kashmir are a soft target of her forces."
Nasreen said, "Our investigations prove that the burning of schools is a handiwork of Special Task Force (STF) personnel. Many schools were burnt to ashes in few minutes as gun powder had been used to burn them. Police and STF are perpetuating these heinous crimes and are also involved in damaging public properties across Kashmir."
She asked remain vigilant and try to get hold of the miscreants and expose them. Nasreen said, "The criminals, involved in scandalous crimes, have been given patronage in Baramulla sub jail. The criminal inmates are meted out special treatment and are taken to doctors for treatment. However, people who have been detained for being pro-tehreek are not even provided necessary medical check-ups."
