GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 30: The chairman of Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, on Friday called upon youth to strengthen the ongoing peaceful struggle.
“The world is supporting our peaceful struggle. I appeal the youth to be firm and keep their struggle peaceful so that world knows that who is using violence in Kashmir,” said Malik while addressing a public meeting at Trehgam Kupwara in north Kashmir.
“People of Jammu Kashmir fostered violence–free and peaceful freedom struggle from 2008. But from 2008 till date hundreds of innocent civilians were killed and thousands others injured, giving birth to very painful history. Despite government’s unilateral violence, the Kashmiris did not give up peaceful struggle. Now it is the responsibility of international community to respect and value the Kashmiris’ peaceful struggle and take steps for resolving Kashmir issue on priority for abiding peace and stability of the region,” he said.
Malik was accorded rousing welcome at Trehgam- ancestral village of JKLF founder Muhammad Maqbool Bhat.
“Trehgam has an historical importance as it is the identity of our nation. Shaheed Muhammad Maqbool Bhat was born and educated in this area and he had started freedom struggle from this area only,” said Malik, adding that this district has also produced great leaders like Abdul Gani Lone, Mufti Jamal-ud-Din and hundred of others who strived and struggled hard for the cause. “We are the trustees of their sacrifices and will continue till their mission is taken to its logical end,” he said.
Demanding the release of all the arrested youth including students, Malik said it did not behove those claiming high of democracy and democratic ideals and principles to put behind bars the innocent youth.
