‘Send Army back from J&K'

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Advocating that a political solution to the Kashmir problem be explored by respecting the democratic aspirations of the Kashmiri people, Delhi-based civil rights organisation Janhastakshep has said that the Army should not be allowed to deal with a civil conflict and ought to be sent back to the barracks.

In a statement, the organisation noted that the situation had worsened in Kashmir after the killing of more than a dozen people protesting human rights violations in the past one month by the security forces.

“Kashmiris are not being allowed the right to protest the killing of innocent people in fake encounters. We demand an in-depth enquiry into all cases of excesses committed by the Army and para-military forces and cases should be registered. Black laws like the Armed Forces Special Powers Act should be repealed forthwith,” it said.

It was also critical of the move to withdraw curfew passes given to media persons and alleged that censorship was prevailing in the Valley.
