Bombard us all overnight to make it easy for you. 

Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairperson (KEA) Muhammad Yaseen Khan today strongly condemned the target killing of civilian Muhammad Saleem at Noor Bagh Srinagar. Khan said, Muhammad Saleem was killed in a target firing at his home and even his funeral procession was not spared without the use of force. “Instead of killing us one by one Government forces who have already  declared war on Kashmiris should bombard us all together overnight to make it easy for them”, Khan said. 

Khan who also heads Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF) blamed government forces for carrying out a planned massacre in state and termed this incident as sheer cowardice and inhuman act. He said atrocities evolved into worst ever humanitarian crises unleashed by the government forces are now becoming intolerable and suffocating with each passing day. 

Terming it a cold blooded murder, Khan said, how can they kill any innocent without any justification ? “Civilians continue to get killed and maimed at the will of trigger happy forces as it is the worst form of human rights abuses and violations in Kashmir”, Khan said. He said because of the unbridled powers given to the forces and the lack of accountability, every day innocent civilians are brutally killed, which is condemnable in all forms. 

While appealing international rights groups to take cognizance of the human rights violations taking place, Khan said it is now a routine affair of the forces to kill Kashmir’s young at their will and wish. 

“I appeal Amnesty International and Asia Watch to take notice of the rights violations committed by the forces in the Valley and depute their teams to look into the abuses,” Khan said in a statement.
