    Rising Kashmir News

    SRINAGAR AUG 21: Kashmir Civil Forum (KCF) on Saturday expressed its deep anger and anguish over the unabated killing of unarmed and innocent civilians across Kashmir. During last two months, so far 62 Kashmiris mostly teenaged youth have been shot dead in most gruesome and barbaric manner.

    Forum views the ongoing situation as grave with the law enforcing agencies seemingly having gone out of control and besides the repeated claims by the state government there is no sign of restraint on the part of these agencies. The criminal silence of the concerned authorities over these gory incidents is highly condemnable and Forum urges the intelligentsia and members of the Civil Society across India to rise to the occasion and raise their voice against the grave injustice inflicted upon the people of Kashmir.

    The Forum also strongly condemns the malicious campaign launched by some unidentified quarters against members of Sikh community in Kashmir and denounces the evil designs which are aimed at weakening otherwise strong secular fabric of Kashmir. It is rather intriguing that during the peak of militancy not even a finger was raised against this community and all communities have been living in peace and harmony since 1947 and the secular traditions have always been upheld by the majority community even against grave provocations. The Forum has also demanded an impartial probe to unveil the conspiracy hatched to harass the Sikh community apparently to malign the majority community.

    The meeting was attended by M S Pandit, Prof Nusrat Andrabi, Zafar Meraj, Shafi Ahmad Qadri, Nighat Shafi, Shujaat Bukhari, Tasneem Akhtar, Muzaffar Bhat ,M S Magray,Irfan Mushtaq and Asim Qadri.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
