Hurriyat Conference (M) today flayed the government for bringing out a list of minor and teenage boys of Srinagar's Shehr-e-Khas area and asking people to earn cash rewards for helping police to nab them, terming it 'highly immoral and deplorable.'
"This way the authorities are playing havoc with the future of these innocent children and pitting one Kashmiri against another Kashmiri," a spokesman of the amalgam, in a statement today, said.
"Kashmir is being soaked with the blood of the civilians for the past month and hundreds of youth, women and children were blinded with lethal pellet guns. People are seething with anger over state terrorism and in such circumstances launching a campaign against innocent children is the height of oppression and avenging tactics," the spokesman said.
Condemning the arrest of a Kashmiri youth, Tawseef Ahmad of Sopore in Chhattisgarh in a 'frivolous' case, the spokesman said, "Harassment of Kashmiri students and traders, studying or working in different states of India by the police has become the order of the day and continues unabated."
Meanwhile, Hurriyat has strongly condemned the act of terror in Quetta in which over 70 innocents lost their lives and expressed sympathies with the bereaved families and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman on Tuesday expressed grief over the demise of prominent Islamic scholar, Moulana Ashraf Andrabi who passed away after brief illness at his home in Zadura village of Pulwama district.
He expressed solidarity with the bereaved family. "We equally share their pain," he said.
