SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat (G) Conference, Syed Ali Geelani on Friday said that communalization and politicization of rape and murder of 8-year -old girl Asifa was deplorable and disheartening. He expressed his anguish and concern over the biased approach of the judiciary, saying they have always been apathetic and unsympathetic towards suppressed people of Kashmir.
The spokesman said that the gruesome rape and murder of the eight-year-old girl from the Bakerwal community reminds us of the challenges confronting our society. It is a beastly act, said Geelani and added that one and all need to resent and react against these gruesome incidents.
Demanding stringent punishment for rapists of Kathua minor and those who by evoking emotions and giving communal colour to the rape-and-murder case, Geelani said that these fringe elements are committing a heinous crime against humanity.
Geelani said that some vested interests are trying to derive political mileage out of a brutal and inhuman act. Appealing people in Jammu, Geelani said that they should identify and resent those sick minded who for their mean interests are trying to communalize this barbaric incident.
Blaming authorities, Geelani said that vested elements and some criminals are hatching conspiracies to handover case to CBI and trying their hard to shelve case and acquit perpetrators and for this purpose, even Supreme court of India is facilitating the move, he added.
We have no faith in Indian judiciary, Geelani said and their bias track record about Kunan Poshpora and Shopian double murder and rape cases, serve as glaring examples for their bias and communal mindset.
Demanding impartial probe by some internal agencies Syed Ali Geelani said it as “crime against humanity” and as such the criminals should be awarded a stringent punishment.
Meanwhile, the spokesman said that Geelani and other resistance leaders are barred from performing religious obligations which is interference in religious matters.
