IHK people facing repression: Admits congress leader
Srinagar, March 17, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, former president of Congress party, Ghulam Rasool Kar, has admitted that the people of the territory are facing severe hardships and repression has engulfed them.
Ghulam Rasool Kar in an interview to a Srinagar-based news agency termed the execution of Muhammad Afzal Guru very unfortunate and said that it would have been better if he would have not been executed.
He said that he had written a letter to the President of India seeking clemency for Afzal Guru. “I will release that letter at an appropriate time and people will come to know about my thoughts regarding Kashmir and Afzal Guru,” he added.
He lamented that the people of Kashmir were facing difficulties and there was a lot of repression. “We all know what is happening in Kashmir. Nothing is hidden. It is evident that people of Kashmir are being killed for no fault. I want to reveal a number of things but I can’t as I am in the Congress party,” he maintained.
