Fresh killings and sedition cases against Kashmiris condemned – Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad 30, Nov, 2010: Muhammad Farooq Rehmani Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League had expressed profound shock and condemned killings of innocent youth by police in Qamarwari Srinagar. The martyred youth in the procession hailed from Srinagar, Bandipora and Sopore and were targeted without any provocation.
He denounced sedition charges in a Delhi Court against Syed Ali Geelani, Arundhati Roy and others saying that the law of treason was not applicable to any Kashmiri fighting for the right of self determination or their Indian supporters as promised by the fathers of the Indian constitution.
On the other hand he said the Indian authorities are liable to be prosecuted for carrying on a long drawn campaign of genocide in Kashmir. He said that such victimization of Kashmiri leaders or young men or their sympathizers in India would automatically aggravate the situation and adds fuel to fire in the volatile situation of the region.
He urged on the saner element among Indians to come forward and stop their self-interested establishment from taking recourse to extreme undemocratic steps against the people of Kashmir who were engaged in a historical movement of the right of self determination and not secession from a country.
