Ali Raza Syed also demanded severe punishment to the perpetrators of rape and murder of eight-year-old Aasifa Bano of Kathua area of Jammu region.
He said that the shocking crime was a ruthless attack on humanity and followers of every religion and human ideology condemns such shameful act of barbarism.
He added that the rape and murder of the minor girl in a temple and protest in favour of the killers and rapists should be an embarrassment for the Indian so-called democracy and the civil society.

Chairman Kashmir Council EU urged the international community to intervene in the worsening situation of human rights in IHK and help the Kashmiris in securing their right to self-determination.
He also expressed anguish and serious concern over the targeted killing of Kashmiri youth which has become almost a daily affair in the occupied territory.
“Kashmir dispute is a reality and use of force cannot prevent the people of Kashmir struggling for the past 70 years.
They are struggling despite Indian state terrorism in the presence of a huge military and might on ground here,” he said.
