Civilian Killings: PAGD holds GoI responsible for prevailing situation in Kashmir
10/8/2021 11:17:04 PM
Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Oct 8: Condemning the recent civilian killings, Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Decleration (PAGD) Friday said that the current situation prevailing in Jammu & Kashmir is the result of the failure of the policies of the government that have brought Jammu & Kashmir to this point.
A meeting of the PAGD was convened today at the residence of Dr. Farooq Abdullah to take stock of the current situation prevailing in Jammu & Kashmir.
The meeting was attended by Mehbooba Mufti, Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami and Justice (Retd) Hasnain Masoodi.
"The PAGD unreservedly condemns the recent killings of innocent people in the Valley. These killings have created a climate of fear that has not been seen in Kashmir since the early 90's," an official statement.
"The current situation prevailing in Jammu & Kashmir is the result of the failure of the policies of the government that have brought Jammu & Kashmir to this point. Whether it was demonetization or removal of Article 370, these decisions were sold to the country as a solution to the problems of militancy and alienation in Kashmir," it said.
PAGD said that some recent decisions of the Jammu & Kashmir administration have only served to heighten differences between the communities that otherwise were living peacefully amongst each other.
"The onus to create a conducive security environment lies with the Government of India, however, we as responsible political parties of Jammu & Kashmir will play our role to the best of our ability to reduce the levels of suspicion and fear," it said.
"While it is true that the majority of the civilian deaths in Kashmir have been Muslims, it does not absolve us of our responsibility to do everything in our power to help those who belong to religious minorities feel secure and we appeal to those who may be considering fleeing the Valley to reconsider their decision," the statement reads.
"In the meeting of Political Leaders with the Prime Minister on 24th June, 2021, the Prime Minister acknowledged "Dil Ki Doori ore Dili Say Doori" while promising to correct this distance. Unfortunately, nothing has been done in this regard since that meeting. Arbitrary detentions and excessive use of force continue to be the norm in Jammu and Kashmir," the statement reads.
"The killing of Yasir Ali yesterday evening is the direct result of the heightened state of alert and justification for use of force. Harassment of innocent civilians and the killings like Yasir Ali will only serve to worsen the situation in Jammu & Kashmir," it said. "The administration must do everything possible to ensure that shoot at sight policy is not adopted by the security forces.
