JKLF to file PIL in Supreme Court: Malik
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 22: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday announced that the Front would very soon file a Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme Court regarding unidentified bodies and unmarked graves in the Valley.
ďThe open admission of State Human Rights Commission about the presence of unmarked graves containing 2000 bodies in north Kashmir speaks volumes of Jungle rule in Kashmir where people are killed at will. An impartial probe into these killings is necessary,Ē Malik said in a statement.
He said over 10,000 persons have been subjected to disappearance in the custody of armed forces and the families of persons are waiting for their return for the past several years. ďDespite the fact that various families have been ruined due to the enforced disappearances, the government has not done anything to heal their wounds,Ē he said.
Malik said there was a dire need for discovering the unmarked graves and holding impartial probe to identify the persons buried in these. He called upon the Amnesty International, Asia Watch, UN Human Rights Commission and human rights champions and civil society members of India to come forward and do the needful to heal the gnawing wounds of the families of disappeared persons.
Malik also expressed serious concern over the fresh spate of innocent arrests in the Valley. ďFrom children to aged people are languishing in different jails. Most of the detainees are suffering from different ailments due continued detention and non-availability of proper medical aid in jails,Ē he said, demanding their immediate release.
Malik has also condemned the slapping of another PSA against Hurriyat leader Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi.
Meanwhile, Malik expressed deep sorrow over the demise of Haji Noor-ud-Din Shah of Kanitar, Hazratbal. He prayed for the deceased and sympathized with the bereaved family.
