Washington: The Indo-American Kashmir
Forum (IAKF) has strongly condemned the alleged assault by
Delhi Police on Kashmiri Pandits in the Indian capital.
Several members of an agitating group of Kashmiri
Pandits were reportedly detained at the Jantar Mantar on
Sunday after a heated exchange between two groups.
The IAKF said in a statement: "Kashmiri Hindus were
peacefully demonstrating against the anti-India separatists
and secessionists in New Delhi when Delhi police used abusive
force and detained peaceful activists".
"While it is a sound policy to win hearts and minds of
common people of Kashmir, Indian government needs to use all
its might to crush the secessionists forces and agenda. India
as a nation cannot afford to let these secessionists and
terrorists run amok and control the destiny of common Kashmiri
folks," it said.
