Srinagar: Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami, CPI (M) leader said on Saturday that the civilian killings in Kashmir should stop immediately.
“Three civilians, including a 14-year-old girl, have been killed in Kashmir during the last three-days. The unabated civilian killings in Kashmir must be a cause of concern for every right-thinking person in the state and the country. The killing of civilians in Kashmir is highly condemnable and it should stop immediately,” Tarigami said in a statement.
He added, “In Kashmir, killings of teenagers are commonplace. The reasons for these murders is often nothing more than the sadism of the one or other party involved in the conflict. It is heart-rending to learn about civilian killings, which have become norm of the day. The situation calls for immediate de-escalation from all sides.”
While expressing heartfelt condolences with the families of the victims, he demanded an immediate end to the civilian killings in the Valley.
“Killing of civilians can never be solution to any problem. Whether a civilian is killed by the bullet from one side or the other side, it is loss of precious human life. Whose cause’ is fulfilled by the killings of civilians? Unfortunately, it is a Kashmiri who is getting killed every day,” Tarigami said.
