Will protest against molestation of female medico : Mirwaiz

Srinagar: Expressing dissatisfaction over the procedure adopted by the High Court while dealing with molestation case against a former minister of state Shabir Khan, Chairman Hurriyat conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Thursday stated that the incident will not be tolerated at any cost and that the protest demonstrations will be held at all mosques and shrines against the ‘heinous crime’.
While talking to KNS on the sidelines of a seminar organised by Hurriyat (M) on Thursday Mirwaiz stated that the women in the state are not safe and that the recent incident is of serious nature and must not be overlooked. “The moral degradation starts from the higher side and it is quite unfortunate that these officers are being thirsted upon the people of the state.”
Mirwaiz, who returned to valley after two weeks, stated that the people who were allegedly involved in the sex racket in the past are roaming free and those who are raising the slogans of democracy provided safe passage to the culprits. “The files are gathering dust in the state offices and no action against the accused has taken place.”
Asserting that Hurriyat (M) will not remain silent over the issue, Mirwaiz said that the protest demonstrations will be carried out so that the culprits could be unmasked at large and be brought in the public court.”
It is being felt on ground that under a planned conspiracy the chastity of Kashmir’s women folk in being attacked and granting interim bail to the accused is ‘dissatisfactory.’ Mirwaiz claimed that besides the political leadership, Kashmir’s ulemas (religious scholars) will be involved in protesting against the incident so that no such action is repeated in future.
