Terming the killing of three civilians in Chadoora as “extremely sad and inhuman”, the incarcerated chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah on Wednesday urged the people across the world to raise voice against the unabated killings in Kashmir.He also slammed the state police for intercepting the ambulance carrying the slain youth’s body and harassing the bereaved family, saying this is the “height of tyranny and barbarity”.“This force has sold out its conscience for few petty coins. Whatever is happening around is unacceptable for us and it would be impossible to stop the mass reaction to such oppressive measures,” he said.Shah expressed wonder “how still some shameless people beg for votes”. “Those believing in electoral politics are nothing but puppets. No one should fall into the trap of the deceptive slogans of such collaborators. Boycott the so-called elections, I assure you, the freedom will be near, In Sha Allah,” he said.“If we participated in elections, the world will mock us,” Shah added.
The DFP chairman urged the people of India to listen to the voice of their conscience and pressurise their government to stop killings in Kashmir and resolve the issue. “Your successive governments have been suppressing our genuine voices and the just freedom movement for the last 70 years but are unable to cow down our resolve and pro-freedom spirit,” he said.“How ironic is it that in Indian states, special task forces are being constituted for the protection of animal rights, while as new lethal weapons are being tried on the people in Kashmir. World must come to our rescue as Indian forces and their collaborators have turned the Valley into a slaughterhouse.”In his appeal to people, Shah said, “We must continue with our mission of freedom as history is witness that no nation has been enslaved for long.”Paying homage to Chadoora youths, Shah said “the best tribute to these martyrs is to stay away from pro-India politics and puppets”.Meanwhile, Freedom Party’s district president Shopian Tanveer Ahmad led a delegation to Nazimpora and paid tributes to Padgampora martyrs. The members also expressed solidarity with the bereaved families. (KNS)
