SRINAGAR, Jan 10: Joint resistance leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik today strongly condemned the killing of a Sikh youth by unidentified gunmen at Tral stating that killing of any human being irrespective of the faith he belongs to deserves highest form of condemnation.
In a joint statement issued here, the leadership said many attempts were made to trigger a sectarian wedge and Sikh community was targeting time and again but they always stood shoulder to shoulder with the majority community and the ongoing freedom struggle. "When the gruesome incident of Chattisingpora took place the members of Sikh community showed wisdom, remained patient and defeated the anti-Kashmir agencies and people," they said.
The leadership said that it is the collective responsibility of the leadership and people to protect the minorities be they Sikhs, Hindus, and Buddhists as Islam also lays stress on protecting the members of minority community.
"A joint delegation of JRL will soon visit Tral and meet the family members of the slain Sikh youth Simranjeet Singh and collectively condemn the killing and reassure members of Sikh community," they said.
The leadership also strongly condemned the rape of a minor Gujjar girl at Ramsoo stating that such incidents deserve all out condemnation and those involved in attacking the chastity of the minor girl must face the stern punishment. The leadership said before this incident another incident had taken place at Kathua where culprits were identified while relatives and family members of the minor girl continue to await justice.
These incidents are aimed at creating fear among the community and make them feel threatened by groups who gain by it.
