“Jammu Kashmir is a police state where killing innocent humans is normal,” said the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday.While condemning the “brutal” killing of one more Kashmiri at Cheva Muran Pulwama on Monday, Malik in a statement issued to GNS said the ongoing military crackdown and spree of killings especially in the southern districts of Kashmir is a “well-strategized” policy of New Delhi.“Today dozens of villages in Pulwama were besieged by Indian occupational forces and beating people, vandalizing their properties, humiliating honourable citizens was started as a matter of routine. During this crackdown trigger, happy forces opened fire on civilians killing one more Kashmiri youth Fayaz Ahmad of Chewa Kalan Pulwama on spot and injuring dozens more. This killing spree is a well-devised plan of Indian occupation and its soul aim is to inflict more harm and injury to Kashmiris, intimidate them and force them into submission,” he said.“On one hand, this oppression and state-sponsored terrorism against common people is going on and on the other hand enforcing so-called democracy is being done by the illegal occupants which is highly hypocritical and absurd,” Malik said.
He said Fayaz Ahmad of Chewa was fired directly in his head and others who have received bullets or pellets also have received injuries above chests. “This clears the fact that killers in the uniform fire to kill only as they have no respect or regret for human life,” he said.“Indian rulers must realize that the people of Jammu Kashmir cannot be put into submission by these tyrannical acts and killings. In fact, our resolve to achieve freedom and right to self-determination gets strengthen by this oppression,” he said.While paying rich tributes to slain Fayaz Ahmad, JKLF chairman expressed solidarity with his bereaved family and prayed for speedy recovery of those injured.Meanwhile, Malik expressed heartfelt grief and sorrow over the demise of the mother of senior resistance leader General Moosa.Terming the demise as a great loss, JKLF chairman said that “she was the wife of a martyr and mother of another martyr and stood in the first row when the time for sacrifice came”.“The departed mother and his whole family rendered valuable sacrifices for the freedom of Jammu Kashmir and no Kashmiri can ever overlook these sacrifices,” he said.JKLF chairman and many other party leaders including Noor Mohammed Kalwal, Mushtaq Ajmal and Bashir Kashmiri visited the bereaved family and prayed for her heavenly abode.
