Army Chief’s statement signal of genocide of Kashmiri youth: Jama’at-e-Islami

Indian Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat

Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami (JeI) Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday expressed its concern over the “threatening and intimidating” statements of Indian Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat in which he has advocated the “use” of military power against the ‘peaceful’ agitating youth in the valley thereby giving “free license to the army personnel deployed here to use power at their will against the Kashmiri people and assuring them total exemption from any legal accountability for committing breach of any law or regulation”.

“Further his desire that the protestors use bullets instead of stones depicts his inner appetite for killing the Kashmiri youth, is also worrisome and agonizing and indicates the dreadful plans of New-Delhi’s BJP government to crush the public uprising here for the execution of which they are seeking the chances,” JeI said in a statement this afternoon.

“The exemption of army personnel from any legal action involved in human rights violations clearly indicates the plan to use the military power against the people so as to crush their peaceful movement for securing their basic right of self determination as promised to them by the Indian government a number of times through the Security Council of UNO,” the JeI statement added.
