KTMF, KEA condemn civilian killings

Srinagar, Apr 11: Reacting sharply to the killings of innocent civilians in Kulgam, the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF) President Haji Mohammad Yasin Khan said the government was silent over the “systematic implementation of some deep-rooted conspiracy in Kashmir.”
Khan who also heads Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) said in a statement that, “The killing of innocent civilians including a 14-year-old boy is a clear-cut message that Government is executing systematic mowing down of people of Kashmir as a part of a deep-rooted conspiracy,” Khan said adding If our children continue to be unsafe then we can go to any extent. Those at the helm should realize it and refrain from testing our patience anymore.
He said, “the systematic killing of people of Kashmir needs an immediate end or that this pre-programmed genocide will backlash in the form of a never before agitation the onus of which will on the government and its forces”.
Khan said, “Government was answerable as to why these gruesome murders are allowed and let to enjoy legal impunity.”
Praying for peace to the departed souls, he expressed sympathies with the bereaved.
