KARACHI: Kashmiri political leaders sent out an SOS to the entire ‘humanity’ after Indian occupation forces massacred seven innocent civilians following a gunfight that left three freedom fighters and one soldier dead in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir on Saturday.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the chairperson of his own faction of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), said that the Indian occupation forces went on a killing spree in Pulwama district of the occupied valley.

Writing on micro-blogging site Twitter, he feared that the death toll, which has already crossed seven, would rise further.

The Mirwaiz announced that Kashmir people would march towards Badami Bagh army cantonment on Monday to “ask the Indian government to kill all of us at one time rather than killing us daily”.

The APHC leader said: “The youth have been shot in the head, in the neck, the abdomen. It was shoot to kill, not to disperse them.” He added that India was killing innocent Kashmiris as a state policy.

Politicians from Azad Jammau and Kashmir and mainstream Pakistani political parties also denounced the bloodletting in the occupied valley.

Journalists, human rights campaigners and Twitterati are appalled by the wanton killing of Kashmiri civilians by Indian occupation forces in the disputed valley.

The victims of India’s mindless killing spree also included an 8th grade student and a 25-year-old business graduate who had recently returned from Indonesia after completing his degree there.

The brutal killing of civilians triggered angry protests in the Indian-occupied Kashmir where protesters condemned what they called ‘genocide of Kashmiri people’.
