Jammu, July 26 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) has said that provision of weapons by the authorities to the members of Indian Army-backed Village Defence Committee in Kishtwar and other districts of Chenab valley has spread a wave of fear and harassment among the Muslim community.

APHC leader and the JKPM Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem in a statement issued in Jammu asked why the authorities are equipping the communal elements with lethal weapons. He said the Muslims are being tortured and harassed in the entire India and no step is being taken to protect them from the onslaught of communal elements.

Mir Shahid Saleem said in past the so-called Village Defence Committee members were involved in killing of innocent people and other heinous crimes and the authorities should immediately disarm them.
