CPI (M) senior leader and MLA Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami today termed the rally organised by a fringe right-wing group, demanding the release of the accused in the rape-and-murder case of an 8-year-old girl in Kathua district, as “most shameful act and against the human values.”

“The rally is an indication of dangers confronting Jammu and Kashmir. By supporting the accused, the ‘Hindu Ekta Manch’ has shamelessly displayed their communal intentions. Using tricolor during the rally is an insult to it and things can’t get more horrible than this,” Tarigami said in a statement. 

“Some fringe elements in Jammu are hell bent on giving religious colour to this heinous crime. Not only people cutting across political and ideological differences should unite to against this horrific incident, but the Government must take stern action against the accused without showing any leniency to them,” he said. 

“Civil society, political groups and saner voices in Jammu are strong and they should unitedly fight for the justice to the tender soul who was raped and brutally murdered by the enemies of humanity. They should unite and isolate the fringe elements, who want to communalise the situation in Jammu by holding marches in favour of enemies of humanity. Such acts will embolden criminals and lead to a chaotic and uncontrollable situation in the state, he warned. There should be no room for those who shield the criminals under the one garb or the other,’ Tarigami said. 

Quoting example of similar brutal incident in Lahore, Pakistan, where a seven-year-old girl was raped and brutally murdered, he said, “the accused has been sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court in shortest possible period of four days.”

“The civil society in Pakistan used its influence to get the speedy trial of the case and they succeeded in their mission. I am hopeful that similar efforts would be made by the civil society here to ensure that the accused in the rape and murder case are hanged to death without any further delay,” he added.
