Forces executing ‘shoot to kill’ policy in Kashmir: Mirwaiz

Condemning the “naked aggression, barbarism and continuous firing by Police and government forces on the people protesting against the killing of Burhan Muzaffar Wani and his two associates resulting in 19 civilian killings during the past two days, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairman, Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq Sunday paid glowing tributes to these martyrs.”
Stressing that the way government forces were executing their ‘Shoot to Kill’ policy, killing 19 civilians and injuring over 200, the Mirwaiz said it was clear and evident that India had declared a war against Kashmir.
Terming the thrashing of injured civilians admitted at SMHS Hospital and their women attendants by government forces as the worst example of “state terrorism”, the APHC Chairman, who is under house arrest for the past several days, said Police and government forces in Jammu Kashmir had been “let loose” and the way they were trampling all human rights should serve as an eye opener for all international human rights organizations and friends of humanity.
Stressing that the public uprising and display of resistance by the people following the martyrdom of Burhan should serve as a lesson to New Delhi, the Mirwaiz said Govt of India cannot continue to deal with Kashmir with a clampdown and that Kashmiris would never accept their politics of oppression and suppression. The APHC Chairman said the public uprising had once more proved that Kashmir issue was not an administrative issue or an issue of change in governance but was connected to the wishes and aspirations of the people and that no solution to the issue could be arrived at by ignoring them. Meanwhile, a Hurriyat spokesman condemning the continued house arrest of APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam, Javed Ahmad Mir and the detention and house arrests of several other resistance leaders said by confining the leadership to their homes and detention centres, the resolve of the resistance leadership and freedom-loving people could not be broken.
