Afzal was hanged to please vote bank: DFP
Srinagar, Feb 12: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party Tuesday paid glowing tributes to Afzal Guru who was hanged on Saturday morning in Tihar Jail, New Delhi.
In a statement today, a spokesman of DFP said, “Although many death sentences are awaiting execution in India, only Afzal Guru's death sentence was executed by the government of India to please their vote bank. The fact remains that this decision is purely political in nature because Afzal Guru was not given a fair trial. Many loopholes have been found by the conscious jurists of India as well in the execution process.”
The spokesman demanded the return of mortal remains of Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru.
“Entire valley has been made hostage by the forces and whole of Kashmir Valley has been turned into a virtual jail for the past four days. Peaceful protesters are being showered bullets and the entire population is being harassed. Besides, the forces have unleashed reign of terror in several areas of Valley,” said the spokesman, condemning the killing of three youth and police action on peaceful protesters across the Valley.
