Srinagar: G H Mir of Democratic Party Nationalist, G A Mir of Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee and Hakim Yasin of Peoples Democratic Front today condemned the civilian killings in Chadoora area of Budgam.
Terming the civilian killings as ‘unfortunate’, Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) president and former agriculture minister, G H Mir on Tuesday condemned the civilian killings.
Mir said that the tall claims of the government over peace in the state are proven hoax on the ground as the civilian killings goes unabated in the Valley.
“The civilian killings must be stopped at earliest,” he said.
Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) chief, G A Mir also condemned the killings.
Mir said that the civilian killings are one among the reason that the people are alienated with the government. “The civilian killings in the Valley can further deteriorate the situation in the Valley,” he said.
He said that the forces should exercise maximum restraint while dealing with the unarmed protesters. “The loss of lives can’t be compensated,” he said.
Peoples Democratic Front (PDF) president and MLA Khansahib Hakim Mohammad Yasin expressed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and prayed for the speedy recovery of injured civilians while strongly condemning the killing of three youths.
In a statement to KNS, Hakim Yasin said, “The killings are highly condemnable. Only the families of those killed can understand the pain and sorrow. It is unfortunate that every time people of Kashmir especially youth have to pay price for the misdeeds of ruling class.”
Demanding an impartial and time-bound probe into the incident, he said, “The guilty must be punished and a mechanism evolved so that such incidents aren’t repeated in future.
We have been saying from the day one that unless the vexed Kashmir isn’t resolved according to the aspirations of people of the state, peace can’t return.
However, the present governments at the center and the state are giving deaf ear to the pleas of those aspiring for peace,” he said. (KNS)
