Shopian bloodbath: JRL calls for Shopian Chalo, shutdown on March 7

Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) in a statement has called for a march towards Shopian on March 7 in order to pat homage to the six people killed in the district yesterday. They have also called for a complete shutdown on March 7.

JRL, comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, in a statement said that the ‘RSS backed PDP regime along with all pro-India politicians and political parties are responsible for the ‘massacre’.

The joint statement pointed out that the ‘Indian trigger happy forces and police are deployed to kill Kashmiris and pro-India politicians and political parties especially RSS backed Mehbooba regime is deployed to provide a legal cover to these killers.’

JRL leaders said that pro-India politicians and rulers are directly responsible for these massacres and will have to answer for their crimes in accordance with the law of retribution. JRL leaders said that Kashmir has been turned into a slaughter house where the lives of young and old, men, women and children are targets of Indian bullets.

“Though this genocide is going on from last many decades but the way Indian soldiers at the behest of their political masters have expedited this killing spree has turned the situation seriously horrible,” the statement said.

Terming the statements of pro-India rulers and politicians and announcements of so-called probes as mere eye wash, JRL said that the staying of the probe against the army major openly involved in killing of three civilians in Shopian by the Supreme Court of India, despite an FIR being lodged against him in name by the police, is a travesty of justice.

“Not that people of Kashmir from their experience have any hope of justice being delivered to the civilians mostly youth, killed in cold blood by armed forces but what is more shocking and deceitful in this case is that the counsel for so-called state government told the court that the name of the accused major, Aditya Kumar, does not feature in the FIR,” JRL statement pointed out.

“While they all along were beating the drum that the accused in the case has been identified and named and definitely justice will be done, these spineless collaborators think that people can be taken for a ride by their false promises and antics of empathy and sympathy with them. People know that the promises made by these collaborators have no value, and their only aim is to stay on the chair at any cost,” the statement added.

Meanwhile JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik who led a joint JRL protest rally against Shopian killings at Lal chowk on Monday, was arrested by police has been now shifted to central jail Srinagar on a 6 day judicial remand.
