Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Muhamamd Yasin Malik on Tuesday said pro-India politicians were responsible for killing of innocents in Kashmir.
“Why are innocent Maisera Bano and Asif Iqbal killed in cold blood and what is the sin of little Maryam who has been deprived of mothers love by Indian occupation,” asked Malik while talking to people at Thandipora Kupwara and Younsa Handwara today.
Malik met with Maisera Bano’s bereaved family which included her six months old baby girl Maryum.
“Maisera Bano who was preparing night meals for her family and as she stepped outside her residence she was also shot at and killed brutally. Her family tried to take her body inside but forces stopped them from doing that and it was only after the rise of dawn that killers left the place and family was able to recover her body,” a JKLF spokesperson said.
JKLF chairman also met the bereaved family of driver Asif Iqbal, who was killed in alleged army firing during an ambush.
“Innocent Kashmiri men and women are falling to the bullets of Indian occupational forces that fear no prosecution and enjoy immunity provided by so-called rulers,” Malik said.
He said that all pro-India politicians, political parties, leaders and assembly members are “responsible for this genocide as these are the people who provide license to kill to these killers and shield their crimes against humanity by passing and incorporating appropriate laws and decrees.”
Killing innocents under the garb of encounters and putting properties to flames is exposing the brutal face of Indian democracy in Kashmir.
He said that Kashmiris want to ask these pro-India rulers and their Indian masters that what is the sin of six month old Maryam who has been deprived of her mother’s love by trigger happy Indians.
JKLF chairman said “today butchery is being celebrated and blood of humans is being treated as the cheapest commodity, but civilized humans especially leaders keep tightlipped to safeguard their trade and economic interests.”
“This apathy and double standard of the international community vis-a-vis the poor nations like Kashmir is actually making this world more dangerous and unsafe place to live on and we appeal to international community to shun its negative attitude towards fellow humans,” Malik said in his address.
