Srinagar, June 15, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Grand Mufti, Mufti Muhammad Bashir-ud-Din and Deputy Grand Mufti, Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam, have condemned in strong terms the brutal killing of senior journalist and Chief Editor of daily Rising Kashmir, Shujaat Bukhari.
Mufti Muhammad Bashir-ud-Din and Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam in a joint statement issued in Srinagar expressed utmost shock and mourning for the cold-blooded murder of Shujaat Bukhari along with his two personal security officers.
Astonishingly, the incident occurred hours later when the United Nations published its first ever human rights report on Kashmir demanding an international inquiry into human rights violations in occupied Kashmir by India and the same news was reported by Shujaat’s newspaper hours before this incident.
Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam termed the inhumane act deplorable and demanded impartial probe into the matter from an international agency to thwart any further attempts to divide Jammu and Kashmir into ideological and intellectual lines. Grand Mufti prayed for the hereafter of Shujaat Bukhari and condoled with his family.
