Srinagar, November 20 (KNO) : Kashmir’s highest lawyer body High Court Bar Association and Jamat e Islami have condemned the killing of Mir Hafizullah, District President Tehreek-i-Hurriyat Anantnag on Tuesday. HCBA termed the killing as “beastly act which should be condemned by one and all, who believe in humanity and fundamental freedom of people.” “The Bar Association feels that in the killing of Mir Hafizullah, the people of Kashmir have lost a sincere, dedicated and honest soul of the soil, who has for the most of his life, preferred incarceration rather than succumbing to the threats, pressure tactics and intimidations extended to him by those, who are opposed to the just cause of the people of Kashmir,” the spokesman of the HCBA said in a statement. The lawyers body demanded that the killing be probed by an independent agency “so that those who have committed the dastardly act do not go unpunished.”(KNO)
