NC demands Sayeed’s trial for his alleged role in ‘massacres’

NC demands Sayeed’s trial for his alleged role in ‘massacres’
“NC demands that Sayeed stand trial in courts for his involvement in Gawkadal massacre, Bijbehara massacre, Hawal massacre, Kupwara massacre... It is time that the present chief minister of J-K is seen in the court of law facing trial for his role in bloodshed as an ex-Home Minister of India. It is time for the PDP to reply to this,” NC spokesman Junaid Mattu told reporters here.

The demand comes days after PDP leader and Minister for Education Naeem Akhtar’s reported statement that NC working president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah should face trial for “killing 120 boys” in 2010. Mattu said Akhtar had no right to speak about human rights violations if “the killings during Sayeed’s regime were not killings”.

“We cannot forget Sayeed’s role in these massacres. If Akhtar does not believe the killings that took place when Sayeed was the home minister were killings and human rights violations, then he (Akhtar) has no right to speak,” he said.

The NC spokesman said cases were registered for the killings in 2010, but there were no FIRs in “massacres”.

“If there was anyone in the mainstream who was pained by those killings, it was Omar. FIRs have been registered for 2010 killings and we cannot interfere in those cases. But have any FIRs been registered in these massacres in which Sayeed is involved,” he said.

Sena slams Mufti, calls him  ‘godfather of separatists’

In the wake of separatist leader Masarat Alam’s release, Shiv Sena on Wednesday attacked Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed saying that he was a “godfather” of separatists and demanded his arrest. “The separatists in Kashmir have got a godfather in Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, who has increased their strength. The BJP’s coalition partner in Kashmir (PDP) has a mindset that is further complicating the situation there rather than solving it,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said.

The Sena alleged that the meeting between Pakistan envoy Abdul Basit and separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani at a time when secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan have just resumed, has been “inspired” by Sayeed. “It is being said that during this meet, detailed talks were held over the present situation in J&K,” the BJP said.
