Those casting votes are trading blood of martyrs: Tabassum Guru

DOABGAH: The widow of 2001 parliament attack convict Afzal Guru Wednesday said that those casting votes in the election are trading the blood of martyrs of Kashmir.

Tabassum Guru, wife of Afzal said, that their village has been converted into a garrison and each house is guarded by seven to eight armed men.

“Why will I vote and for who? Those casting votes are trading the blood of martyrs of Kashmir. Last year, it was my husband who paid with his life. Tomorrow, it will be one among those who are queuing up outside polling booths,” she said.

“We have to get out priorities right and we should stand together and boycott Indian elections,” she said.

Tabassum said her village has followed the poll boycott call and not a single vote has been cast.

Her husband was hung and buried at New Delhi’s Tihar jail last year and the family has been asking for his mortal remains.
