Hizb Flays Killing Spree In Kashmir2 April 2011
Srinagar: The Hizb-ul-Mujahideen on Saturday strongly condemned the latest spree of murders in Kashmir, saying that killing anyone on mere suspicion and without proof or evidence was grossly unjust and unlawful, but stressed that collaborators deserved to be “punished.” “The Hizb’s charter is based on the Quran and the sunnat, and therefore it cannot condone the killing of any civilian, irrespective of his or her religion and political persuasion,” Hizb spokesman Ihsan Ilhai said. “Every human is worthy of respect, and Islam regards killing of an individual as killing all humanity, and saving a human life as saving all humanity,” the spokesman said. “Therefore, the Hizb neither allows nor supports the killing of innocent and blameless people,” he said. “However, individuals openly collaborating with forces and their agencies in killing mujahideen and pro-freedom activists, or acting as informers, deserve to be punished,” it said.
