Geelani condemns CM’s ‘silence’ over Kathua rape and murder
Srinagar, March 03: APHC chairman Syed Ali Geelani while lashing at Mehbooba Mufti for ‘her criminal silence over rape and murder of eight-year-old girl Asifa’, said that efforts by the ruling dispensation to shield and to give cover to the real culprits is the biggest irony.
Strongly criticising the ‘pro-criminal’ rally at Kathua, which was joined by few ministers too, Syed Ali Geelani, in a statement issued here said that, how can the regime take due course of action against culprits when its two cabinet ministers participated in rally.
Lamenting at state administration, Syed Ali Geelani said despite restrictions on public rallies, the pro-criminal rally was organised which clearly illustrates that they believe in bullying and lawlessness in state is at its peak.
Citing the statement of two cabinet level ministers including Chander Prakash Ganga, and Chowdary Lal Singh, wherein they demanded to handover the investigation of Asifa’s case to CBI, Geelani said, that communalizing and politicising a murder and rape case is unacceptable.
Geelani said that pro-criminal rally reflects the total moral bankruptcy of ruling partners.
