Srinagar, December 12 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have strongly condemned the killing of a woman by Indian troops in Handwara area of Kupwara district.

The leaders in their statements in Srinagar paid tributes to the victim woman, Misra Begum, and the three youth, martyred by Indian troops during a cordon and search operation in the town on Monday.

The illegally-detained Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik in a message from Srinagar Central Jail said, “Trigger-happy Indian forces have crossed every limit of brutality and oppression in Jammu and Kashmir.” He also denounced the assault on a driver and a youth at Ajas in Bandipora district. Yasin Malik said that Indian forces had no respect for human life or honour. “The impunity provided to these killers has made them savages and they feel no shame while killing innocent people. The entire Kashmir Valley has been turned into a battlefield where Indian occupational forces have let loose an ugly reign of terror,” he added.

The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while paying tributes to the martyred women and youth said that the troops were killing men, women, elderly and youth in very part of Kashmir for demanding freedom from Indian yoke. It deplored that innocent civilians were becoming soft targets of the Indian forces. “Under a well planned conspiracy and on the basis of military might, New Delhi is resorting to a systematic genocide of Kashmiris,” the statement added.

Hurriyat leaders, Musaddiq Aadil, Zafar Akbar Butt, Shabbir Ahmad Dar, Barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Imtiyaz Ahmad Reshi and Ghulam Nabi War in their statements paid glowing tributes to Handwara martyrs.

The Jamaat-e-Islami of occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Party and Voice of Victims, a human rights defender group, in their statements said that the way the Indian forces mercilessly killed the innocent woman in Handwara vindicated the real motive of cruel Indian forces in occupied Kashmir. They termed the killing of the woman as the worst example of Indian state terrorism in the occupied territory.
