Srinagar, September 16, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Dr Mustafa Kamal, senior leader of pro-India National Conference and uncle of the puppet Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, has said that the investigation ordered into Shopian killing is merely an eyewash.
Dr Mustafa Kamal in a media interview in Srinagar said, “We all know that killers are enjoying impunity under Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and such killings would continue to occur till AFSPA is in vogue in Kashmir.”
Criticizing the CPI-M leader, Muhammad Yousuf Targami for saying that the regime was not serious in punishing Shopian killers, Kamal questioned “how can the set-up headed by National Conference punish the killers when they are enjoying impunity under AFSPA.”
“Why we stress the revocation of AFSPA? We want that AFSPA be repealed from troubled Valley because these Indian forces after killing innocent people feel free and get encouraged for more killings. These killers must be punished but AFSPA saves them,” he said.
