Srinagar, Joint Resistance Leadership of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik on Tuesday strongly condemned the outrageous and inhuman statement by Kavinder Gupta of BJP that the deliberate and gruesome rape and murder of 8-year-old child Asifa from Kathua was a “small matter which was given importance “. It reflects the sick communal mindset and value structure of the “proud RSS man “.
JRL in a statement said that inducting another organizer of the Pro rapist rallies Ravinder Jasrotia into the government clearly shows that BJP does not believe in deviating from its politics of polarisation and appeasement of certain communities for votes, even on a basic human issue like this, which is not surprising. It just reinforces the fact of how helpless the local collaborators, the PDP is and how shameless they can be to stay on for the sake of chair. It also indicates how much justice can be expected for Asifa from a system run by such people.
JRL also expressed concern and condemnation over the killing of three youth from old town Baramulla. JRL said that time and again people are killed in such a manner and no one knows who killed them as the killers remain unidentified. While the state authorities conveniently blame armed youth the militant organisation, in fact, condemn the killings and many time blame state agencies. In the process, the culprits never get identified. JRL said it is a matter of serious concern and needs to be investigated appealing the UN to take note of this and set up an impartial inquiry into these killings.
JRL reiterated that any killing on grounds of political or party affiliations is inhuman and un-Islamic and unacceptable to people and leadership of Kashmir.
