Srinagar, February 21, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has said that India should realize the fact that videos, news and images of Kashmiris being beaten, vandalized, looted and humiliated in India will only promote hatred among humanity.
The JRL comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar, condemning the unrelenting attacks on Kashmiris in various Indian cities and states, said the attacks on Kashmiri students including females in different institutions across India, businessmen, tourists and people from other walks of life is in every respect a dangerous trend.
It said, “From last one weak, Kashmiri students, businessmen and tourists are being beaten ruthlessly by unruly mobs, shops and business centers are being looted, vandalized and humiliated in broad daylight with police in many cases watching as mute spectators.” It said the widespread organized attacks against Kashmiris are apparently instigated by the ruling regime in India as no one till date has been penalized or arrested for these hateful attacks.
The JRL said when announcements of vengeance come from as high as Indian Prime Minister’s office, home minster and other political class, when sitting governor of Meghalaya, Tathagata Roy is tweeting publicly to boycott, rape, massacre and kill Kashmiris and he is not even asked to restrain, how can these ugly attacks be termed as mere acts of resentment and anger.
“When you ruin career of young scholars and students by beating, humiliating and vandalizing them and instead of penalizing any attacker, reprimand and punish those attacked by suspending them from colleges and universities, what alternative way are you leaving for these scholars but to tread the path of rebellion”, the JRL added.
