PRESS RELEASE 20.11.2018: J&K High Court Bar Association, Srinagar strongly condemns the killing of Mir Hafizullah, District President, Tehreek-i-Hurriyat, Anantnag Islamabad and injuring of his wife
J&K High Court Bar Association, Srinagar strongly condemns the killing of Mir Hafizullah, District President, Tehreek-i-Hurriyat, Anantnag Islamabad and injuring of his wife, in an attack made on his life and terms the same as a beastly act, which should be condemned by one and all, who believe in humanity and fundamental freedom of people.
The Bar Association feels that in the killing of Mir Hafizullah, the people of Kashmir have lost a sincere, dedicated and honest soul of the soil, who has for the most of his life, preferred incarceration rather than succumbing to the threats, pressure tactics and intimidations extended to him by those, who are opposed to the just cause of the people of Kashmir. The Bar Association demands that the killing of Mir Hafizullah be probed by an independent agency, so that those who, have committed the dastardly act do not go unpunished.
The Bar Association also condemns the hitting of three innocent girls namely Simran Jan, Rafia Jan and Meenu Jan, with bullets in their abdomen, leg and foot and also firing of pellets into the eyes of one youth Bilal Ahmad at Nadigam, Shopian, by ruthless Govt. forces and also terms the said act as a brutal one, which has no parallels in the history.
The Bar Association appeals the members of international community to come to the help of the people of Kashmir who are caged and are being killed, blinded and maimed every day and their properties are also raised to ground only because they seek their right of self-determination, guaranteed to them by the UN Security Council and promised by the Indian Leaders both inside and outside the Parliament and World Fora and await its implementation for the last 70 years.
