Attacks on Kashmiris outside valley distressing: JRL leaders

The attacks on Kashmiri businessmen, students, tourists and people from other walks of life in various states of the country is distressing and apparently instigated by the ruling regime. The videos and photographs of Kashmiris being beaten, humiliated, looted, vandalized outside valley will only push more Kashmiri youth to the wall and path of rebellion, the spokesman of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said.

Terming these attacks as distressing and horrible, Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) spokesman said that attacks on Kashmiri students in different colleges, universities and institutions across India, is in every respect a dangerous trend that is promoting hatred between humans.

This widespread, organized unilateral violence against Kashmiris is apparently instigated by the ruling regime as no one till date has been penalized or arrested for these hateful attacks, JRL said.

The spokesman said that when announcements of vengeance come from as high as Prime minister’s office, home minister and other political class, when a sitting governor of Meghalaya Tathagata Roy is tweeting publicly to boycott Kashmiris, he is not even asked for restraint and when TV channels are let free to talk whatever they want, how can these ugly attacks be termed as mere acts of resentment and anger.
