Chidambaram has confirmed Guru’s hanging was unfair: Ali Raza

Brussels, February 28, 2016 (PPI-OT): The Chairman of Kashmir Council EU, Ali Raza Syed, has said that former Indian Home Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram’s statement over Afzal Guru’s case has confirmed that the Kashmir leader was hanged unfairly. Ali Raza Syed in a statement from Brussels, said, the former Indian minister’s statement brings the justice system of India under question.

“Afzal Guru was hanged because he was a Kashmiri as Indian justice system does not work in case of Kashmiris,” he argued. Ali’s statement was in response to an interview to The Economic Times, where Chidamabaram had said, “I think it is possible to hold an honest opinion that the Afzal Guru case was perhaps not correctly decided.”

Chairman Kashmir Council EU asked international community to assign an international investigation into the case of Afzal Guru and pressure India to assist in reopening the case in order to expose the facts behind injustice in this particular case. The Chairman of Kashmir Council EU also deplored the detention of Kashmiri leaders and activists including Shabbir Ahmad Shah.
