A win for democracy and judiciary — that’s how Talib Hussain, the activist who had led the campaign against the convicts in the case of rape and murder of eight-year-old Asifa from Kathua, described the court verdict on Monday. He said the ruling reinstated faith in the democratic and judicial system. “This verdict means that Indian judiciary is alive and it has reinstated our faith in the judiciary and Indian democracy,” said Hussain, who joined the People’s Democratic Party last year. “Everybody fighting for justice was pressurized and forced to surrender, but we are indebted to the court that it proved our belief in the system right.”
Politicians across the spectrum in J&K welcomed the court verdict and, for once, the state police received praise for its meticulous investigation in the case. Hussain, who fights for tribals’ rights, claimed that the motive behind the brutal crime was to ‘‘terrorize Muslim tribal population of Jammu, Kathua and Samba, and change the demography of the area”.
The activist, who was also arrested during the protests against the rape accused in Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir last year, said the plans of communal forces were defeated and that those rallying for the accused should be booked as well.
“Those who exploited the Tricolour and rallied for therapists with communal agenda should be booked under the law. Communal forces were defeated with this verdict,” said Hussain.
