SRINAGAR: Ridiculing Indian Prime Minister Narinder Modi for his statement that "army saved lives in Kashmir floods'', Hurriyat Conference (G) has called it a brazen lie and said, not a single person was rescued by Indian forces, however, they take away a big share of the state budget for helicopter services provided to its army personnel.
In a statement, the Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani has said that Indian forces inflicted atrocities to people in state and never treated them as humans.
Commenting over the statement of Indian Prime Minister, the Hurriyat said that the misleading statement was issued at a time when its forces are thrashing youth and using as human shields. The video clips are uploaded on social, media to create fear psychosis, said Hurriyat (G).
The statement said that they killed nine youth on April nine to stage election drama and injured as many hundreds. It is a deliberate attempt to cover up war crimes committed by its forces, said Hurriyat, while referring to Modi's statement.
Hurriyat (G) said that Indian army during 2014 deluge, rescued and airlifted families of the government forces, tourists and some non-state Hindus, ''but they didn't show any kind of sympathy for the local people and they only dropped some expired biscuit packets among them at few places". Later they grabbed a hefty amount as service charges from local administration, said Hurriyat
The Hurriyat Conference said that stone pelting is a resentment for bullet and pelt policy. People are being killed, blinded and maimed, said Hurriyat. Hurriyat in its statement made it clear that Indian authorities through its colonial mindset continue its occupation and their forces are carrying genocide in a well thought design.
Meanwhile, decrying over nineties like crackdown and inflicting atrocities over civilians in Kanelvan Bijbehara, Hurriyat Conference (G) said that resorting to military might, assault and humiliating womenfolk is highly shameful act. APHC said that threat statements issued by BJP leaders is adding fuel to the fire & deteriorating already charged situations.
Expressing shock, Hurriyat (G) said that local administration instead of taking any action is acting as mute spectator. Hurriyat while referring to recent statement of Mr. Ram Madhav, said that it looks as if his statement has conferred a free hand to its forces for their cold-hearted activities. It has created a scare among civilian population, said Hurriyat. In an issued statement Hurriyat said that there is no guarantee of life and dignity & sexual assault is being employed as a war weapon against women.
Hurriyat (G) said that no one was arrested or prosecuted for Chanpora, Kunan Poshpora & Langate mass rape incidents. - NNI
