Srinagar, Oct 9, CNS: Janata Dal (United) State Party President G.M Shaheen has strongly condemned the Braid Chopping incidents and described these as an attempt to create fear psychosis and frustration among the people in Kashmir.
In a statement to CNS, Shaheen said that some unknown elements are cutting the braids of women and young girls and want to trigger clashes within the society and create fear among women and young girls.
“From several weeks many parts of valley have been witnessing the braid chopping of teen girls in Kashmir which has left women folk in chaos and confusion. In this atmosphere, women and especially young girls are scared of coming out their homes. Even men are hesitating to come out in early morning and night as they feel more such attacks can happen in their absence,” he said.
He also questioned the Government as to why it has not been able to identify those culprits.
He stated that Braid Copping is a very serious matter and Government must take measures to contain such shameful activities. “It is right time for the government to act before fire engulfs whole Valley,” he said and added that these acts are aimed at to disturb the peace in Valley. (CNS)
