Kashmir only place in world where killings go unnoticed: Gilani


ISLAMABAD: Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference (G),Syed Ali Gilani has said that Kashmir is the only place in the world where violation of human rights and killing of innocent people by Indian forces goes unnoticed.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, while expressing grief over the killing of a boy in an explosion of stray bomb and loss of limb of another 12-year student in a blast of unexploded teargas in Srinagar said, “This is not something new in the territory where armed forces are not accountable.

I’m personally hurt by these incidents and I equally share the grief of the parents of the injured boys,” he said.

Demanding complete ban on the use of deadly weapons against people, Syed Ali Gilani said until the world community particularly the UNICEF takes notice of this serious issue, such incidents will continue to happen.

He said due to huge military presence, Kashmir is standing over the heap of explosives. “Numerous people, mostly children, have lost their lives and many rendered disabled for the entire life due to such type of accidental explosions.”

Criticizing police for continuously using the lethal weapons against peaceful protestors, he said nowhere in the world do law enforcing agencies use lethal and deadly weapons against their own people.

“People all over the world protest for their demands and authorities have found safe and effective ways to deal with the protesters. But the imposition of black and inhuman laws in Kashmir gives forces a license to kill, rape and implicate innocent people in false and fabricated cases,” he said.
