Yasin Malik released
Condemns firing on civilians at Shopian
Srinagar: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik has been released from police custody after about six days.
A JKLF spokesman in a statement said that from last three years, JKLF chairman has been in and out of jails and this year too has not been different. He was arrested on the first day of Ramazan and forced to spend first six days of Ramazan in police custody.
While terming this state of affairs as making a mockery of democracy and freedom of speech, A JKLF spokesman said that these frequent arrests and incarcerations have put Malik’s health in jeopardy which is fast deteriorating.
Meanwhile, a delegation of the kith and kin of many Kashmiri inmates languishing in different jails today visited JKLF office and met with JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Maik. Delegation informed JKLF chairman about the ill-treatment meted out to Kashmiri prisoners in various jails of Jammu Kashmir and outside especially in the jails of Jammu region.
While condemning the firing by army on unarmed men and women, that too at Iftar Time at DK Pora Shopian, JKLF chairman said that occupational army and forces whose hands are painted with the blood of our loved ones want Kashmiris to join their ‘forced Iftari operation’ and when people at Shopian last evening refused to do so, they were showered with bullets and pellets injuring many of them including some women.
“This firing on unarmed civilians shows the real face of India which neither has any respect for religious sentiments of the people nor does care for the lives of human beings”, said Malik.
