JKLF concerned at Malik’s detention, falling health
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 23: The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front vice-chairman advocate Bashir Ahmad Bhat has expressed serious concern over deteriorating health of the Front chairman Muhammad Yaseen Malik who
has been under detention for nearly 2-months.
“The prolonged detention has had a negative impact on his health,” Bhat said in a statement.
He urged the International human rights organizations to take cognizance of his continued detention.
“Since Malik is suffering from several ailments, he needs to undergo medical tests every now and then. He was on Thursday first taken to the Police Hospital and then to a private hospital where he underwent medical tests some of which were not normal. So the doctors have prescribed him medicines and advised him to repeat the tests. After yesterday’s medical check up, he was again shifted to the police station,” Bhat added.
Meanwhile, Bhat flayed the government for imposition of continued curfew and restrictions in the Valley thereby ‘turning it into a virtual jail’ for its people. He alleged that the police were indiscriminately arresting teenagers and then demanding hefty amounts as ransom from their parents for their release.
Bhat lashed out at the government for preventing Muslims from offering prayers in several Masjids and shrines, terming it sheer interference in the peoples’ religious affairs. “There is acute dearth of medicines and essential commodities everywhere in Valley and patients and attendants are facing tremendous hardships in hospitals. It seems government has waged a war against civilians in Kashmir,” he said, hailing the people of living near hospitals for setting set up community kitchens for the patients and attendants.
