Srinagar, July 20 2013 (PPI-OT): The Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK leaders presented a memorandum to the Indian Assistant High Commissioner in Birmingham for the Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh, urging him to come clear on the recent revelation by a former officer of Indian Home Ministry that the government of India itself orchestrated the Parliament and Mumbai attacks to strengthen the counter-terror legislations.
The Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK President, Mohammad Ghalib, Secretary General, Mufti Abdul Majeed, Raja Fahim Kayani, Mohammad Suleman, Hafiz Mohammad Idrees and Allama Bostan Qadri presented the memorandum to the Indian Assistant High Commissioner.
The memorandum said that Kashmiri youth, Muhammad Afzal Guru was illegally executed in the New Delhi’s Tihar jail in connection with the Parliament attack case and his body was also not handed over to his family for proper burial.
It deplored that the Indian Supreme Court in its verdict had said: “The collective conscience of the society will be satisfied only if the death penalty was awarded to Afzal Guru.” It said, democrats and human rights activists had long argued that Afzal Guru was convicted of a crime he did not commit.
The memorandum maintained that many pleas were made on his behalf over the years since his conviction and sentence but were ignored by India. It demanded a thorough inquiry into the Parliament and Mumbai attacks in which at least two innocent individuals were executed and their families deprived of their loved ones. It also demanded the handing over of mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru to his family.
