‘Forces showed cheap character’
Remembering the Kunan Poshpora mass rape victims, Chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Shabir Ahmad Shah Tuesday said, “Indian forces showed cheap character by committing such heinous crime.”
In a statement issued to press, Shah said both Indian and State judiciary has failed in providing justice to victims while as culprits continue to roam scot-free.
He also termed the silence maintained by State administration and pro-India politicians as “worst kind of opportunism” saying, “It is out of question to anticipate any kind of action against culprits by these power hungry politicians. “
Shah appealed the “humanists across the world to take notice of the crimes committed by Indian forces in Jammu and Kashmir and how these forces use rape as a war tool in this disputed territory.”
Expressing solidarity with the victims, Shah said the incident was “unfortunate and horrible part of our history”.
He said, “Eluding justice only boosts the morale of criminals and further subjugates the weak and victim.”
“Such incidents are due to our slavery. Indian forces showed their cheap character by committing many shameful crimes like Kunan Poshpora, thereby inflicting a never-ending torment to the victims,” he said.
In a separate statement, a Democratic Freedom Party spokesperson today “saluted the fighting spirit of Pampore militants” and paid tributes to them.
The spokesperson also hailed the people of Pampore “for boosting the morale of militants during the gunfight”.
The spokesperson also supported the “post-Friday protest and shutdown call on Saturday issued by the Hurriyat (G) on Monday.
Statement said, on the directions of Shabir Ahmad Shah, a DFP delegation including Peer Inayatullah, Ghulam Muhammad and Mudasir Ahmad visited Takipora, Lolab, to condole the demise of elder brother of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat General Secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai.
Another delegation including Tanveer Ahmad and Bashir Ahmad visited residence of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yousuf Falahi to condole the demise of his father, statement said.
