SRINAGAR, Jan 30: Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Personal Law Board (JKMPLB) and Civil Society Coordination Committee (CSCC) today demanded probe by a sitting High Court Judge into the killing of two youth by army in Shopian last week.
Addressing a joint press conference at a local hotel here, Vice Chairman of Muslim Personal Law Board, Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam termed the FIR lodged by police against army into Shopian killings as mere eyewash to divert the attention.
Nasir said the magisterial inquiry ordered by Divisional Commissioner into Shopian killing won’t make any difference as probes and inquiries have proved futile always.
He said the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti instead of issuing statements from the floor of Assembly should break alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which has always victimized Muslims.
“How long will people of Kashmir tolerate this bloodbath, I ask New Delhi to stop this nonsense? How can one expects justice from a murderer of over two thousands Muslims. If Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti really feels pain of people then she must break her party’s alliance with BJP,” Nasir added.
He said a sitting High Court Judge be appointed to probe the killing of two youth in Shopian by army last week.
He also advocated safeguarding special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 saying that attempts are being made to change the demographic status of the state under a well planned conspiracy by communal forces who he claimed are sitting at the helm of affairs at the centre and in the state as well.
“People of Kashmir have never accepted temporary accession of the state with Union of India. India has to leave Kashmir sooner or later which is the only option available with her as of now,” said he.
Mufti Nasir also demanded return of power projects form NHPC and asked the state government to ensure safety of states natural resources.
“It’s unfortunate that adulterated supply of food and medicines is being sent to Kashmir. The rate of patients with thyroid has alarmingly increased with no serious efforts being made to save the life of Kashmiri people,” the Mufti said.
