Mirwaiz condemns killing of girl
SRINAGAR, Mar 15: Strongly condemning the killing of a minor girl Kaneeza and severely injuring a minor boy Faisal in a joint military-police operation at Hyhama Kupwara, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has termed the incident as yet another “worst example of state terrorism and forces atrocities committed on the people of Kashmir”.

Mirwaiz said the “killing of the minor girl in the incident indicates how the government forces enjoy the impunity to kill Kashmiris under the grab of combating insurgents.”

“Showering bullets on unarmed innocent minors and atrocities on civilian population is totally against the internationally accepted laws for the protection of human rights and established norms of the civilized behavior,” he said.

Mirwaiz said such aggressive behaviour of the government forces against the people of Kashmir could have extremely dangerous consequences.

He appealed to the international human rights bodies and influential nations around the globe to take serious notice of the atrocities being committed on the people of Kashmir and play their role to stop the bloodshed.

Expressing condolence and sympathy with parents of the minors, who reportedly are sibling, Mirwaiz said that the Hurriyat Conference leadership and the entire people of Kashmir share their pain and stand firmly with them at this hour of grief.
