Srinagar, October 17(KMW): Senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (M) and Peopleâ€™s Political Party (PPP) Chief, Engineer Hilal Ahmad War today visited the family of Mondayâ€™s braid chopping victim from Maisuma. In yet another case of braid-chopping, a widow mother of two was sprayed and her braid chopped off. Mr. War expressed his deep concern and anguish over the rising incidents of braid-chopping. He said our women canâ€™t be terrorized and humiliated like this and that his party can launch an outright movement against it, if the incidents donâ€™t stop. â€œThis is an extremely serious matter and itâ€™s an attack on the honour of the entire community. We canâ€™t be cowed down by such tactics,â€ said Mr. War.
He said that it is the handiwork of the agencies but they canâ€™t dent the resilience of the masses. â€œGovernment of India has to ultimately bow before the will of the people and such tactics arenâ€™t going to work,â€ he said. Mr. War said such nefarious tactics are aimed at diverting the attention of the freedom-loving masses, so that they are caught up in issues like these and as a result stay away from various activities related to the movement of right to self-determination.
â€œWe will launch an all-out campaign against such heinous tactics if it doesnâ€™t stop soon,â€ said Mr. War.
