Mirwaiz said that the rape and murder of minor Kathua girl were premeditated, it ’s aim was to push and evict bakerwal community from the area by instilling fear among them the way Kunan Pospora act was committed to force entire Kashmir population into submission.
Mirwaiz said while on one hand people of JK are demanding stern punishment to the culprits of minor Kthua girl, at the same time we demand reopening of all rape and murder cases since 1990 and to bring culprits to book after investigations.
Mirwaiz also urged all the pro-justice people across the globe would rise to an occasion and ensure justice is delivered to all the victims of rape and murder in JK.
Mirwaiz also criticised ruling regime for imposing frequent curbs and caging the resistance leadership in jails and homes. He questioned the rulers as to how long they would curb the freedom resistance leadership and people. He said today strong voices are emulating across India and Pakistan that war was not the solution and that Delhi must accept the ground reality and address the core issue of Kashmir.
