Jammu Kashmir High Court Bar Association (HCBA) today alleged that the government forces are engaged in the systematic genocide of people of Kashmir.
"These forces are not only killing and blinding the people with bullets and pellets but are also humiliating men, women and children irrespective of their age. They are destroying and damaging their properties without any let up. During the past one month more than 50 persons have been killed and around 5,000 wounded by use of bullets and pellets in ruthless and barbaric manner and the world is watching the same as mute and unmindful spectators," a HCBA spokesman quoted the executive members of the Bar as having said.
The members strongly Condemned the killing of Riyaz Ahmad Shah, a 22 year old youth of Chattabal here and Faroo Ahmad Kuchay, a truck driver of Lethpora, and injuring more than 15 people, at Damhal Hanjipora Kulgam and 30 persons at Siri Gufwara Anantnag. They also condemned the 'reign of terror' let loose in Kashmir by these armed forces by arresting young and old and putting them behind the bars.
