Srinagar, November 06, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani has said that the slaughtering of tens of thousands of Muslims in Jammu in 1947 is a brazen and most barbaric incident in the history of humankind.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar said, “All the areas of Jammu region witnessed the ugliest and most brutal human carnage and all streets and fields of Jammu region were flooded with blood and flesh of Muslims.”
“Under a deep and well-knit conspiracy it was announced that those willing to go to Pakistan should assemble in Jammu police lines. Hari Singh and his troops had unleashed a reign of terror and Muslim population was not only traumatized but terrified as well and the announcement to send them to Pakistan was a great relief for them,” Gilani said, adding, “The people assembled in the said venue along with their families including women and kids and they were boarded in trucks to be taken to Samba.”
“On reaching halfway near a narrow lane, they were dragged out from the buses, young and beautiful females were taken away and the rest of people including kids were pumped with bullets. “Reports of loot, arson, gutting down houses unabated killings poured in from every city and town of Jammu province. Females were molested and gang-raped, some of them jumped in river Chenab to save their chastity and honour.”
“Towns of Kuthwa, Riasi, Udhampour and other adjoining areas were worst hit by these beasts in human skin,” he added. He said, “After a pause of 70 long years the mindset, thinking and the conduct of the perpetrators has remained unchanged, rather their insensitivity and irresponsive attitude has grown multi-fold.”
Condemning the oppressive tactics of present regime while dealing with the peaceful protests he said, “Jammu and Kashmir is a single unit and we all will collectively and unified to fight the forced rule which will be the best and glorious tribute to all victims including those of November 1947.”
Gilani in his statement also condemned the custodial killing of a minor, a 16-year-old Qaiser Hameed Sofi son of Abdul Hameed Sofi of Ganderpora Srinagar.
