Mushawarat Condemns Qasim Nagar Massacre
Suggests SIT, Special Prosecutors and Special Courts for Such Acts of Terrorism
Asks Terrorist Organizations to Abstain from Mindless and Counterproductive Violence
New Delhi, 17 July, 2002: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat
(AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:
"The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) unreservedly condemns the massacre of nearly 30 innocent persons in Qasim
Nagar, Jammu, by an unidentified terrorist group and conveys its heartfelt sympathy to the next-of-kin of the victims and calls upon the government to make suitable
ex-gratia payment to them for the loss, in many cases, of their bread-winners.
The AIMMM has noted that this act of terrorism has been condemned by all sections of public opinion including the
However, the Hurriyat has called for investigation by an independent international organization. The Hurriyat should realize that while the State may be held responsible for failure of intelligence or due vigilance, it cannot abdicate its sovereign authority to investigate a criminal offence.
The AIMMM expresses the hope that the state machinery shall soon nab the killers and put them on trial.
To facilitate the judicial process, the AIMMM suggests, for the consideration of the State Government, that a Special Investigation Team be set up, Special Prosecutors be appointed and Special Courts be established, to deal with the terrorist crimes.
The AIMMM also asks the organization concerned to abstain from such mindless acts of barbarism which are essentially counterproductive. Far from advancing any popular cause, such acts only serves to strengthen the resolve of the people and the State to eliminate the scourge of terrorism.
The AIMMM takes this opportunity to reiterate its firm conviction that political problems cannot be resolved by use of force but only by peaceful negotiations."
