Crackdown on resistance camp unacceptable: Mirwaiz
Srinagar, Sep 18: Hurriyat-M chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while expressing concern over the killing and arresting of youth today said that “J&K is being deliberately converted into a police state where all rights of people are muzzled”.
After chairing the meeting of Hurriyat-M’s executive and general councils and working committee, Mirwaiz said that the situation in Kashmir is very sensitive and the meeting discussed the prevailing situation threadbare.
“All the participants expressed strong concern and resentment over the killing and arresting youth during search operations, especially in the southern Kashmir and termed it as unacceptable,” he said.
Mirwaiz said that entire Kashmir is being drenched in the blood of youth and the police along with paramilitary forces are raiding the residences of resistance leaders and arresting them.
“It seems that a massive crackdown has been launched on the resistance leadership ahead of the so-called local bodies and panchayat polls,” he said.
Mirwaiz also welcomed the recent statement of United Nations Human Rights Council chief Michelle Bachelet in which she criticised New Delhi for not acting on its report.
