Geelani calls for shutdown in Shopian on May 30


SRINAGAR — Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani has called for complete shutdown on May 30, the day when Asiya Jan and Neelofer Jan were “raped and murdered” in year 2009.

In a statement issued to KNS, recalling the painful incident, Hurriyat (G) chairman termed it a heinous crime against humanity and expressed dismay on the dubious and malicious role played by the law enforcement agencies and legal authorities with regard to making vain efforts to trample down the eyewitnesses and other credentials of this case.

While demanding a high level probe by United Nations Human Rights Commission, pro-freedom leader said that the rape and murder of the dou sisters was committed in the broad-daylight, but culprits are still at large, which speaks volumes about the Indian designs to use rape of women as a war strategy.

Expressing his grave concern on the heavy military presence in Jammu and Kashmir, the veteran leader said that human rights violations and military presence, having strong correlation needs a serious notice by the United Nations Human Rights Commission to help resolve Kashmir dispute and bring an end to the present miserable and volatile situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
