Various Sikh organisations of Jammu and Kashmir today condemned the use of force against protesters in the Valley and appealed to the world community and the UN to take serious note of the situation.
“We condemn the killing spree in Kashmir, excessive use of pellet guns, ransacking of houses and other property by forces. This mass uprising in Kashmir cannot be suppressed with the excessive use of force,” Narinder Singh Khalsa, chairman of Sikh Intellectuals Circle, told reporters in Srinagar at a joint press conference along with the leaders of Shiromani Akali Dal-Amritsar, International Sikh Federation and Sikh Students Federation.
“We appeal the world community, the UN and human rights organisations to take serious note of the state-sponsored brutality against peaceful mass-uprising in Kashmir,” he said.
