Srinagar | July 25 : Pro-freedom leader and noted human rights activist, Junaid Qureshi today slammed Jamat-u-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed for sending a team of doctors to Kashmir.
In a Facebook post, Junaid, who is also the son of senior pro-freedom leader and chairman of Jammu Kashmir Democratic Liberation Party, Hashim Qureshi, has said Hafiz saeed should see a psychiatrist.
“It would have made more sense if he (Hafiz Saeed) would have sought Indian visa to get himself treated by good psychiatrist,” Junaid posted on his Facebook post which was linked with a story about JuD’s move to send a medical team to Kashmir.
Junaid remarks have come after a team of doctors of Hafiz Saeed’s JuD has sought Indian visa to visit Kashmir and help the injured people especially the pellet hit victims.
Reports said that the team of 30 doctors and paramedical staff of ‘Muslim Medical Mission’ (of the Jamaat-ud-Dawah) will apply for Indian visa on Tuesday in order to reach Kashmir where they could treat the people injured in clashes with the Indian Army.
It may be noted that since July 8, after the Hizb commander Burhan Wani was killed, 49 people have been killed in the spontaneous clashed between civilians and the government forces. Over 2,500 have been injured, many critically, where around two dozens people are at the brink of losing eye-sight hit after being hit by the pellet guns used by the forces.
According to doctors, one person has completely lost his eyesight while nine others have lost eyesight of their one eye. For the rest, the doctors at valley’s tertiary care SMHS hospital said it would take them four to eight weeks to review the condition of other pellet victims. The medicos say that most of the pellet hit victims need a specialised treatment. (PTK)
