Protest rally by JKLF
SRINAGAR, May 4: On the call of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), a protest rally was taken out by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (KLF) today against civilian killings and Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta’s recent statement regarding Kathua incident.

Carrying banners and placards which read “stop killing innocent youth and stop state terrorism” dozens of JKLF supporters amid slogans took out a protest march after Friday prayers from Maisuma to Budshah Chowk.

Call was given by Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik against unabated civilian killings in Kashmir valley.

Protesters alleged that state and the central governments under a well planned conspiracy kills innocent people in Kashmir on daily basis.

“This protest was aimed at expressing solidarity with the families of civilians who were mercilessly killed by government forces in Kashmir. We want to draw attention of international community towards unabated civilian killings by men in uniform,” Showkat Ahmad Bakshi senior JKLF leader told reporters.

He appealed to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to take strong notice of the human rights violation in Kashmir and mount pressure on government of India to resolve the dispute as per wishes and aspirations of People.

“It’s unfortunate that people at the helm of affairs encourage civilian killings in Kashmir, these mainstream politicians acts as collaborators of New Delhi. We strongly condemn civilian killings and demand immediate end to bloodshed in Kashmir,” Bakshi added.

The JKLF leader minced no words to take deputy Chief Minister, Kavinder Gupta head on for what he termed his “shameless” statement regarding Kathua gang rape and murder.

“This is the height of shamelessness on the part of the so-called Deputy Chief Minister who termed gang-rape and murder of innocent nomad girl as minor. What shall one expect from such communal minded people who even do not spare children from politics,” said Bakshi before culminating the protest.
