Srinagar, February 17 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the High Court Bar Association (HCBA) has condemned the harassment and intimidation of Kashmiri Muslims in Jammu and India.

The HCBA members took out a procession from District Court Complex, Srinagar, in which hundreds of lawyers participated and raised slogans against all the communal and fanatic forces.

They asked the authorities to give protection to Kashmiri Muslims, who are presently in Jammu or in any other part of India and ensure their safety and security at all costs.

“If harassing, abusing, beating and teasing of Kashmiris and members of Muslim community is not stopped forthwith it will have serious repercussions,” said Muhammad Ashraf Butt, General Secretary of the Association.

Meanwhile, the HCBA in an Executive Committee meeting in Srinagar said Kashmiri Muslims living in Jammu and the Muslims of Jammu are so frightened that they stayed back in their homes on Friday and did not offer Friday prayers to avoid being targeted.

“In Bihar, Dehradun, Chandigarh, Aligarh and other parts of India, Kashmiri students have been beaten to pulp and asked to leave those places forthwith. It is barbaric and shameful,” they said.

It appealed to the international community including United Nations, Amnesty International, Asia Watch and other human rights organizations of the world and also the members of Indian civil society to come to the rescue of the people of Kashmir.
