Our children not safe even while playing: Mirwaiz Umar

Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq y while expressing shock and grief over the death of a 12-year-old kid Saliq Khursheed of Meemander Shopian and grave injuries to three other children following an explosive material that went off suddenly Wednesday said “conflict claimed one more life this time of a little child and our children are not safe even while playing.”

In a statement here, Mirwaiz said with each passing day Kashmiri’s pay the cost of the lingering conflict as the world looks on and there is little effort to put an end the tragedy that Kashmir has become.

“Unending pain inflicted on the Kashmiri people was only because of the fact that people demand their birth right and its is high time for New Delhi to accept the ground realities and to resolve the vexed issue of Kashmir as per the aspirations of people,” Mirwaiz said. 

Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) spokesman strongly condemned the continuous house arrest of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, stating that after being released for just a day after almost a week-long house detention Mirwaiz was once again placed under house arrest at his Nigeen residence. 

The spokesman strongly denounced the continuous detention of Syed Ali Geelani, arrest of JKLF chief Muhammad Yasin Malik and arrest of dozens of leaders across Kashmir terming it as a “political vendetta.” 

“It is unfortunate and concerning that in the first six months of the current year, 60 innocent civilians were killed in the government forces action which indicates that ten civilian were killed on an average each month and hundreds of people who were peacefully protesting were showered with live bullets and deadly pellets leaving dozens of them with grave eye injuries and bone fractures,” the spokesman added.
