SRINAGAR, Oct 11(SABAH): Condemning the growing incidents of braid chopping by miscreants, the incarcerated Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik has said, “these attacks are intended to create fear psychosis among Kashmiris and make their lives more vulnerable.” “But perpetuators of these cowardly acts should remember that Kashmiris can never be cowed down by these kinds of condemnable acts,” Malik said.
Terming as surprising the “inability of rulers and police to even identifying culprits behind these cowardly acts,” Malik said, “police and other forces are very swift while dealing with peaceful protests and protesters and show brutal haste while identifying people, organizations and abettors behind any happenings even before the actual occurrence of that act.”
“They are swift while putting teen-age protesters in jails under the garb of stone pelting but seem clueless about the attacks on the chastity of Kashmiri women which are happening at a very high speed and almost everywhere.”
“Hundreds of braid cutting incidents have been reported throughout Kashmir, however, police has maintained criminal silence on all these ugly incidents, but two or three false reports from here and there have got quick police response threatening common people instead of the culprits,” a spokesman of the Front, in a statement, quoted Malik as having said in his message from Srinagar Central Jail.
Appealing people to remain vigilant and united against these growing attacks on women and refrain from hurting innocents during this “vigilantism”, JKLF chairman said, “this is a plot of enemy to defeat us psychologically and we all with our unity and community based vigil will have to defeat these ugly designs.”
