In occupied Kashmir, the Working President of National Conference, Omar Abdullah denounced the anti-student and anti-youth wave of repression in the Valley.
According to media sources, Omar Abdullah addressing a function in Srinagar said that the use of brute force and oppressive tactics against protesting students wouldn’t help in restoring peace but would add to the already alarming level of alienation on the ground.
The India’s decision not to resolve the “political issue” in Kashmir has worsened the situation in Kashmir, saying that military solutions could not be used to fix a “political” problem.
He said rather than paying heed to the growing discontent and unease among the youth of the territory, the Mehbooba Mufti regime has unleashed an unprecedented wave of brute force to quell student protests.
“The gravity of the situation can be gauged from the fact that teargas shells were fired even inside the premises of the women’s college in Srinagar,” he deplored.
