Detention of five members of a family along with a neighbor during the night after the dastardly attack on a bus carrying Amarnath pilgrims from the house of Mushtaq Ahmad Laway in Botengu Islamabad and thrashing all inmates without any legal or moral justification, and thereafter breaking all windows and doors besides ransacking all household goods is an uncivilized act not possible in the civilized world. It's not clear which law these unruly forces personnel follow? It seems that these forces personnel are lawless acting as vagabonds, having no fear of any legal or moral accountability. On one hand, forces personnel along with SOG of police raided the house of Mushtaq Ahmad Laway during the Monday night and after ransacking everything which came in their way, took away five family members and a neighbor who had taken refuge there, were after ruthless beating detained. But on the other hand, DIG and SSP of police concerned deny making any arrests in the area. It proves that these forces have obtained free license to commit atrocities upon the hapless people of Kashmir at their will! What kind of procedure is this to arrest any person? Which law allows this type of brutal investigation? To fetch any confession of a crime under torture is no achievement but simply a brutality. Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir while expressing deep concern over this atrocious attitude of the Indian forces against the civilians in Kashmir, appeals the Indian as well as the international human rights bodies to intervene and save the Kashmiri people from this state sponsored tyranny.
