Yasin Malik booked under PSA, shifted to Kot Balwal
Srinagar, Mar 07: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a shutdown Friday in Kashmir against the arrest spree, ban on Jamat-e-Islami and slapping of Public Safety Act (PSA) on JKLF chief Muhammad Yasin Malik.
A statement issued by JRL said that arbitrary arrest of Yasin Malik and many others under “draconian PSA” and shifting of Malik to Kot Balwal jail Jammu is “most condemnable act”.
“This spree of arrests, ban on Jamat-e-Islami and attempts to tinker with hereditary state subject law under the pretext of Article 35-A deserves our stiff protest and resistance and people of Kashmir besides holding peaceful protests after Friday prayers will also observe a complete and comprehensive shutdown tomorrow on 8th March 2019,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, JRL also condemned the grenade blast at Jammu bus stand that left a person dead and injured more than 32 others.
In a separate statement, the JRL said that attacks on unarmed civilians are the most reprehensible act which should be condemned by all civilized humans.
“While praying for the speedy recovery of those injured in today’s blast, JRL said that our hearts go to those families whose kith and kin have lost their lives or got injuries in this blast and we express our solidarity with these families,” said the statement.
Condemning the attacks on Kashmiris in Lucknow by some “fascist goons”, JRL said that attacks on Kashmiri traders, employees, labourers and students have not receded but are increasing at an alarming pace.
“JRL condemns these attacks and terms these as most obnoxious,” the statement said.
