Srinagar, June 28, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Tribal Coordination Committee (ATCC) has sought action against BJP MLA Lal Singh for supporting culprits of rape and murder of a Kathua minor girl. ATCC Chairman Talib Hussain addressing a press conference in Srinagar thanked the people of Kashmir for raising their voice for Bakerwal girl raped and murdered in Kathua.
He said, “People worldwide stood for the Muslim girl who was kidnapped, raped and murdered in Kathua district of Jammu to threaten the tribal Muslim community from Samba, Kathua and Jammu districts. But the people of the territory, especially from Kashmir, proved that they will not allow any such communal force to do so.”
He said that ATCC showed solidarity with youth who were injured when protesting for justice for the girl. He appealed the Governor to take serious notice of the prime issues of the community. The Kathua rape and murder case remains chief among these, as also ensuring security to witnesses and people fighting for justice in the case.
He asked for stern action against Lal Singh and everyone who is a threat to communal harmony in the territory. The other ATCC leaders present at the press conference included Rafiq Blote, Danish lqbal, Chowdary Avais, Riyaz Ahmad Bhadana, Mumtaz Ahmad Khan, Nazir Ahmad Tass and Basharat Ahmad Chouan.
