Srinagar: Apni Party Provincial President Women’s Wing Kashmir Dilshad Shaheen on Tuesday termed the death of a woman from New Theed-Harwan as extremely shocking and unfortunate wherein she was allegedly set on fire by her husband and in-laws.

In a statement issued here, Shaheen said “It is a heinous blot on our society wherein women are still set on flames. Are we still living in the dark ages wherein women used to be burnt alive in the name of witch-hunt? I see no difference between those ruthless uncivilised witch-hunters and present day’s rapaciously insatiable in-laws.”

Shaheen urged the administration to initiate an impartial and speedy probe into this incident so that the culprits are brought to book and justice is delivered to the victim and her family.

Furthermore, she added that the social and religious institutions must come into the forefront to condemn such acts of belligerence against women who are an inseparable part of a prosperous society.

Meanwhile the Apni Party today said that some political activists hailing from district Kupwara on Tuesday joined Apni Party at its office in Lal Chowk Srinagar.

According to a statement issued here, the new entrants who joined Apni Party included Javid Ahmad Thkiri, Mohammad Issac Bhadana, Ghulam Haider, Shafiq Ahmad, Shabir Ahmad, Aftab Ahmad Bhadana & Khursheed Ahmad Bhadana.
