Kashmiris protest against reports of women’s case

December 15, 2009

DAWN

SRINAGAR: A protest strike shut down Indian-administered Kashmir on Tuesday after investigators said two women allegedly raped and murdered had actually died by drowning, triggering angry claims of a cover-up. Public anger and outbreaks of violence shook the region in May after the bodies of the two Muslim women were found in a stream. Locals said they had been sexually abused and killed by the security forces.

The strike closed shops, offices, banks and post offices in the Kashmiri summer capital of Srinagar and other Muslim-majority towns, including the victims’ home town of Shopian, witnesses said. Hundreds of Kashmiris held noisy anti-government demonstrations in Shopian overnight as authorities deployed riot police to avert any new mass unrest over the case.

‘We urge the people of Kashmir to observe a complete shutdown against the concocted story presented by the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigations) before the court,’ Abdul Rasheed Deva, one of the protest leaders, told AFP. Police initially said the 17-year-old girl and her 22-year-old sister-in-law had drowned, but later agreed they might have been raped and murdered. In September, the CBI took over the case. In a report for India’s high court on Monday, the federal agency concluded that the two had drowned, ruling out rape and murder. Even some pro-India politicians rejected the CBI’s conclusions.

‘The whole charade of investigations by multiple agencies was aimed at shielding the culprits rather than bringing them to book,’ said Mehbooba Mufti, the leader of the main opposition People’s Democratic Party. The government has yet to react to the report.

    • Hindus are the real terrorists.It is shame that muslims are silent on being falsely acused/labeled of being terrorists.India shall engulf the world with a nuclear war and terrorism.


  9. “We are told over and over again that the Muslims love death while killing others; and that they celebrate martyrdom while putting others to death. Great! Now it is high time for the rest of us to come together so that this death-seeking and death-glorifying bluff of Islam can be called by declaring that we intend to give martyrdom to all Muslims all over the globe. Islam that was born by the sword can go away only by the sword. Let’s see if all of them choose death or at least some of them choose to come to their senses. Either way the world stands to gain. We need to give them this hard choice if we are to succeed in meeting the Muslim challenge to Human Civilization.”

  10. “So we need to urgently and decisively act against all nuclear aspiring Muslim states, especially the only Muslim Nuclear power which has aggressively named its Atom bomb the Islamic Bomb – Pakistan. Unless we act before the Nuclearization of Terrorism makes the War on Terror a Nightmare, we shall unfortunately have to confront Jihadis having nuclear arms and have only the following two dead-end options:

    – be prepared to either end up destroying all life on this globe fighting the Jihadis to death;
    – or surrender to the Jihadis and accept Islam as the religion for the entire world!”

    See the fear of the non believers about Islam & Muslims.
