Hindu fanatics being armed against Muslims in Kishtwar


Srinagar, June 15 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the distribution of weapons on a large scale to Hindu zealots in Kishtwar district, notorious for being the center of Indian army-backed killer gang Village Defence Committees, betrays terrible designs of RSS-backed Indian government and its local collaborators against Muslims in Jammu region.

The disclosure was made none other than the puppet Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, during her written reply to a question in the so-called Kashmir Assembly.

Mehbooba Mufti who also holds the portfolio of the so-called Home Minister of the territory informed the house that 30,872 gun licenses amounting to 41 per cent of the total licenses issued in the entire territory were issued in the district during the past two years.

The puppet Chief Minister said that 20,610 gun licenses were issued in 2014 and 10,256 in 2015 in the district.
