PAGD urges Modi govt to clear doubts on Rambagh killing

Srinagar, November 26 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), a conglomerate of regional political parties, has urged the Indian government to clear doubts on the Rambagh killing.

The PAGD spokesperson and CPI-M leader, Muhammad Yusuf Tarigami, addressing party workers in Kulgam, said that yet another incident happened at Rambagh in Srinagar on November 24 wherein certain doubts had been raised. The Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party government should come clean on it and bring facts to the fore before the public.

“PAGD stands for the judicial probe into the Hyderpora encounter in which four persons were killed,” Tarigami said. He said that a sense of insecurity was prevailing among the people and laws were being violated.

“People are living under fear. The need is to ensure safeguarding the rights of all communities, regions, political parties, civil society and media,” Tarigami said. He added that all institutions should be allowed to function within the ambit of the law. “The Indian government is arbitrarily invoking draconian laws, including Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA) to curb the voices of dissent. The jails in and outside Kashmir are filled with Kashmiris,” Tarigami deplored.

He urged the Indian government to safeguard the rights of every citizen and instill a sense of security among the people. “Until and unless every citizen feels safe, peace will remain a distant dream,” Tarigami said.
