Srinagar, February 22 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairmen, Syed Ali Gilani has said that communalization and politicization of the rape and murder of an eight-year-old Bakerwal girl in Kathua is deplorable, disgusting and against all ethics.

Syed Ali Gilani was telephonically addressing a rally called by the Joint Resistance Leadership at Aabi Guzer in Srinagar to protest against brutal killing and rape of a minor girl in Kathua and express solidarity with Muslim community in Jammu.

He while appealing the people from all sections of society and particularly non-Muslim community and human rightist groups in Jammu, asked them to come in support of victim’s family so that perpetrators of this heinous crime are punished.

Syed Ali Gilani said, “We are duty-bound to honor, safeguard and defend precious human lives and religious values irrespective of their faith, creed colour and cast, saying it is quite disgusting that instead of this we see the humans are being mercilessly slaughtered everywhere.”

Their properties are looted and their chastity being continuously tarnished and all this butchery is being carried out under the glaring eyes of ruling elite as the people at the helm of affairs are acting as stooges and as deaf-mute spectators, said Gilani.

In his address, Syed Ali Gilani, who is under continued house arrest, expressed his deep sorrow over the rape and killing incident of innocent nomadic girl, Aasifa and expressed solidarity with the grieved family.

He said Muslims in Jammu are being subjected to the worst situations by these elements and demanded stringent and exemplary action against those involved in the heinous crime.

Slamming the puppet administration for its failure, Syed Ali Gilani said, Aasifa could have been saved from these butchers if action would have been initiated in time, instead of this the killers and those involved in this heinous crime, were part of search and investigating team.

He said, “I am quite disheartened to see that these bigoted elements, instead of demanding fair trial and stringent punishment for accused, the Hindu Ekta Manch took out a protest rally in support of the assailants and apprehended rapist (SPO). Most disgusting is that while supporting the rapist they while wrapping their dogmatic ideology in their national banner and buried it under the debris of their filthy politics.”

Syed Ali Gilani lamented at the puppet administration, saying that when people from Muslim majority community took out a protest rally, they were beaten, thrashed and even threatened. It is shame for those rhetoric for upholding the fundamental rights, saying it is unacceptable and quite deplorable.

He appealed people and particularly non-Muslim community and human rightist groups working in India to come in support of victim’s family and help rescue them from this metal agony they are facing. He hoped that all conscious minded people and intellectuals would like to extend their moral support as they did in Damin’s case, so that perpetrators get no escape route and are punished for their heinous crime.

“Asifa an innocent and minor girl, was killed, because she was so helpless and couldn’t resist. Her screams and her tender soul is calling for your help. Though dead but is wailing for our dead conscience. Please wakeup and listen to her wails”, said Gilani, adding she is no different than innocent Damni. Come, join us and let us seek justice for her tender soul.
