Geelani asks UN to probe “Zakura & Tengpora massacres”
Srinagar March 1, 2018: Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday paid tributes to “martyrs of Zakura & Tengpora massacres” and said their sacrifices can never be forgotten.
In a statement issued here, Geelani demanded impartial proceedings under War Crimes Tribunal of the United Nations against the troops involved in the massacres of Zakura, Tengpora and other killings during the past twenty-eight years in the territory.
He said that Jammu and Kashmir has become the most militarized zone in the world and the troops have been involved in the killing of innocent people since 1990.
“Till now no enquiry was initiated against culprits nor anyone involved in these heinous and inhuman crimes was brought to book,” said Geelani.
Geelani while referring to Zakura & Tengpora massacres, said the blood of these martyrs will not be allowed to go waste & nation will never forget the sacrifices rendered by martyrs of these heart-wrenching massacres. “They are our hero’s and their sacrifices are part of our history,” said Geelani.
People in J&K are aggrieved over indifference from United Nation, said Geelani and demanded probe in all killings and punishment to those involved in heinous crimes.
