Protest by lawyers against killings
SRINAGAR, Feb 3: Kashmir High Court Bar Association (KHCBA) today staged a peaceful protest against killing of four civilians and injuring several others including two women by security forces in south Kashmir’s Shopian district last week.

The protest was aimed at expressing solidarity with the victim families and to highlight the alleged human rights violations by government forces under the garb of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Kashmir.

Lawyers amid slogans with banners and placards in their hands which read “Stop human rights violations in Kashmir, stop innocent killings and punish murderers of Shopian youth” assembled at Saddar Court lawns here to protest the alleged genocide of Kashmiri youth by government forces.

The protesting lawyers were represented by Vice-President Bar Association, Mushtaq Ahmad Dar who alleged that Indian army killed four innocents and left several others critically injured in Shopian for demanding freedom.

He appealed the international community and global rights bodies to take strong cognizance of atrocities being committed by government forces in Kashmir valley on daily basis.

“The aim of holding this protest is to express our solidarity with the families of four youth who were killed by army in Shopian last week. We strongly condemn the civilian killings and appeal international community to take note of the ongoing crisis in Kashmir,” Bar Vice-President told reporters.

He claimed that Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally acknowledged disputed territory and government of India should adopt its promises made with the people of Kashmir that they will be given chance to decide their future on ground.

Dar said United Nations Organization UNO and world community has a role to end violence in Kashmir by trigger happy army and paramilitary troopers.

“Isn’t it the responsibility of UNO and other conscious nations to help Kashmir come out of the crises? They should mount pressure on India to stop rights violations and take into confidence all the stake holders including Pakistan and people of Kashmir to resolve this long pending issue,” added Dar.
