SRINAGAR, Jul 10: Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) headed by Farooq Ahmad Dar, today held token protest at city centre Lal Chowk here against unabated civilian killings at the hands of government forces in Kashmir.
Chanting slogans “stop genocide of innocent civilians”, dozens KEA members led by their Chairman, Farooq Ahmad Dar assembled at Lal Chowk and held protest against what they termed genocide of Kashmiri people.
The KEA members while condemning killing of youth by government forces appealed the United Nations to resolve Kashmir dispute which has claimed lives of thousands of innocent people ever since separate movement started in 1989.
They said India which claims to be the largest democracy in the world has badly exposed due to its unrelenting human rights violation in Kashmir.
The protesters also questioned silence of international rights bodies on excesses committed by government forces saying the silence of international community boosts the morale of forces to perpetuate crimes on innocent population.
Talking to reporters, KEA Chairman, Farooq Dar appealed United Nations to take strong note of the human rights violation by Indian armed forces in Kashmir.
He said the only way-out to restore peace in conflict zone is to resolve Kashmir dispute as per wishes and aspirations of people of Jammu and Kashmir.
“I strongly condemn the killing of innocent civilians in Kulgam and Shopian. Does India want to prove its might by slaughtering civilians? Why doesn’t international community take notice of this barbarism which has become a routine in Kashmir,” said Dar referring to civilian killings in Kulgam last week.
Pertinently, three civilians including a minor girl lost their lives and dozens others injured during clashes in Havoora village in Redwani Kulgam Saturday last.
Dar warned the government of dire consequences incase civilians continued to be killed by what he said its trigger happy forces.
KEA Chairman demanded immediate halt to civilian killings in Kashmir and asked the international community to impress upon India to resolve Kashmir issues as per U.N resolutions.
