JRL leaders and activists hold peaceful demonstrations against ‘killing spree’
Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has condemned the killings and questioned that whether 18 month old Hibba Jan was carrying any gun or stone that she was snatched of her eyesight by pellet terrorism?
A spokesman in a statement said that JRL leaders and activists along with people from different walks of life today staged a peaceful protest demonstration against the killing of 15 year old innocent girl Muskaan Jaan and snatching of the eyesight of 18 month old Hibaa Jan by pellets at Shopian.
Leaders and activists from Joint resistance leadership (JRL) today gathered at Koker-bazar Lal Chowk and staged a peaceful protest against killings and ‘pellet’ terror.
The statement said that holding placards and raising slogans against unending carnage by government forces in nooks and corners of Kashmir valley especially in southern districts of Kashmir, participants of the protest demonstration condemned the aggression against unarmed Kashmiris. The protest demonstration was addressed by various JRL leaders.
Meanwhile in a statement issued to media on the occasion JRL said: “Our young men and boys are falling to the Indian bullets and residential houses and properties to its explosives and chemicals. To justify their crimes against humanity, Indians dub slain Kashmiris as terrorists and houses along with civilians as supporters of terrorism which is outrageous.”
“We want to ask a question to New Delhi and its Governor in Kashmir that why was the eyesight of 18 month old baby Hiba Jan snatched by pellets. Was she a terrorist or stone thrower or even an agitator? We want to ask them about the crime of 15 year old Muskaan Jan who was gunned down by government forces. Was she carrying a gun or a stone at the time she was showered with bullets,” asked JRL.
