‘Braid chopping aimed to create fear psychosis among Kashmiris’
Srinagar: While condemning the continuing assaults on the ‘chastity’ of Kashmiri women and growing acts of braid chopping, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik on Tuesday said that these attacks are intended to create fear psychosis among Kashmiris.
Malik in a statement said “these acts are aimed to make lives of Kashmiris more vulnerable but perpetrators of these cowardly acts should remember that Kashmiris can never be bogged down by these kinds of condemn-able acts.”
Terming the ‘inability of rulers’ and their police from even identifying culprits behind these cowardly acts as ‘surprising’, Yasin said that police and other forces are very swift while dealing with peaceful protests and protesters and show brutal haste while identifying people.
He said that hundreds of Braid cutting incidents have been reported throughout Kashmir however police has maintained criminal silence on all these ugly incidents but two or three false reports from here and there have got quick police response threatening common people instead of the culprits.
JKLF chairman said that conspiratorial attitude of police and failure in identifying and arresting the culprits of braid chopping are raising many questions and so are the reported rescue operation by Indian forces at many places for saving the alleged braid cutters are making all this a very suspicious game. He said that attacking women and chopping their braids is actually a ploy to threaten Kashmiris and make their lives more and more vulnerable.
Enemies of Freedom, humanity and human values, want to create a fear psychosis among common masses in Kashmir but we want to tell these enemies that Kashmiris in past have successfully dealt with similar kinds of intimidation and will defeat these wicked designs this time too.
