India has once again set Kashmir on fire: Grand Mufti
Srinagar, March 08, 2013 (PPI-OT): The Grand Mufti of occupied Kashmir, Mufti Bashir-ud-Din, terming the current situation in the territory as extremely grim has said that the government of India has once again set Kashmir on fire. The Grand Mufti in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the killing of Tahir Rasool Sofi by Indian troops in Baramulla and hanging of research scholar, Muddassir Kamran, in Hyderabad, India, seemed to be connected incidents.
“The Government of India continues with its policy of treating Kashmiris as bonded slaves and subjecting them to the worst suppression and repression. Sometimes it plays political gimmicks and sometimes it uses worst repressive measures to realize its interest,” he stated.
Mufti Bashir-ud-Din denounced the use of indiscriminate force by Indian police and troops against peaceful protesters and imposition of curfew and restrictions in the occupied Valley. “We also condemn smashing doors and windowpanes of houses in different areas of the Valley by the armed forces,” he added.
