Protest against Sainik, KP colonies: HCBA condemns forces action against people

Srinagar, June 18 (GNS):  Kashmir High Court Bar Association on Saturday strongly condemns the beating and critically injuring of dozens of youth after Fridayprayers in Valley.

A spokesman of the lawyers’ body told news agency GNS that people were protesting against the proposed establishment of Sainik Colonies and Separate Townships for Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley.

The Bar, he said, makes it clear that beating and injuring won’t stop demonstrating against the nefarious designs of the government which are aimed at to change the demography and Muslim Majority Character of the State.

The lawyers’ body also strongly condemns the dismissal of a teacher of Delhi Public School here for wearing ‘abaya (veil)’. Terming the dismissal order as an act of victimization and an interference with the religious affairs, Bar said that no man-made rule can supersede a divine rule.

“Any one finding himself/herself bound by his/her personal law, cannot be terminated from services, for wearing an Islamic Dress,” he said, adding that such acts of communal nature will have far reaching consequences.

The spokesman also condemns the unlawful and wrongful detention of four Kashmiri girls, by the police at IGI Airport, who were returning for home from Bangladesh, only because one of them was carrying a bag that had a label with “bomb” written on it.

The lawyers body also condemns the beating and injuring of more than 16 girl students by the Warden of Gujjar & Bakarwal Girls Hostel at Rajbagh here, who had refused to clean the residential room of the warden.

“Asking students to clean her room and on their refusal to do so, Warden is not authorized or empower to beat the student to such an extent that 16 of them got injured and had to be admitted in the hospital,” he said and demanded immediate action against the warden by removing her from the post.
