Complaints, cases won’t stop us: Malik
FLAG HOISTING ROW
Srinagar, Jan 16: The JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Sunday said that complaints and cases would not break his resolve to counter BJP’s plan to hoist a tricolor at Lal Chowk here on Jan 26.
Malik described the complaint filed by the ‘Jago Hind Sangthan', in connection with the flag hoisting row, against him in Gwalior court as an “cowardly act.”
“The BJP has announced war against Kashmiris. We are also ready to face them,” Malik told Greater Kashmir.
“We will go ahead with the proposed peaceful programme on Jan 26,”he added.
Malik asked the right wing parties and BJP activists to refrain from hoisting the flag at Lal Chowk. “After losing power BJP is suffering from political bankruptcy. They want set entire subcontinent on fire” he alleged.
The JKLF chairman said that BJP cannot “intimidate” him by filing cases. ‘Jail is my second home,” he said. “Jail is not a new place for me. I have spent my childhood in prisons across India. I have been imprisoned at Agra, Jammu, Rajasthan, Tihar and even in every police station of the Kashmir valley. So BJP and parties of their ilk live in a fanciful world that they think I would get threatened”
He said the JKLF founder Muhammad Maqbool Bhat had taught them to remain steadfast on principles and right to demand, even if “we have to face gallows.”
Pertinently, Sumit Parashar of ‘Jago Hind Sangthan' filed a complaint in a court against Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik for opposing the hoisting of flag at Srinagar’'s Lal Chowk on January 26
