Srinagar : The people of the valley are facing the worst phase of history as they are being subjected to blatant violence at the hands of the security forces, their youths are being killed and detained under various draconian laws only for raising their voice to be provided with their basic right of self-determination, Jama’at-e-Islami said in a statement.
