Intolerance growing on Kashmir: Malik
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 14: Stating that intolerance was growing on Kashmir, the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yaseen Malik, on Friday said the people who talked of Kashmir were being assaulted even in the chambers of Supreme Court.
“With the beginning of peaceful freedom movement in Kashmir we had expected that the Indian civil society would not only like this process but would also initiate steps to help resolving Kashmir issue. But instead of this, the pro-freedom leaders were beaten and humiliated in seminars in India in full public gaze. Whoever talks of Kashmir in India, he is made target of hooliganism even if he is in the chambers of Supreme Court,” Malik said while addressing a condolence meeting at Yachigam in Budgam district of central Kashmir on the demise of the sister of Hurriyat Conference (M) senior leader Aga Syed Hassan Al-Safvi Al-Moosvi.
“Such vicious acts are open violation of people’s democratic rights. Kashmiri people, whose every locality is dotted with martyrs’ graveyards, will not be cowed down by hooliganism of these goons and thugs. The Government of India does not deliberately take any action against these goons thereby encouraging them to indulge in such undemocratic acts of hooliganism. No Gandhi is seen anywhere in India. Instead, only killers of Gandhi are seen everywhere,” he said.
Malik, according to a Front statement, expressed serious concern over the plight of detainees in Udhampur and Kote Balwal Jails, demanding their immediate release.
Malik later addressed the Friday prayer meeting at Sheikh-ul-Aalam Jamia Masjid, Dregam. He was accompanied by Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Muhammad Zaman Mir, Zahoor Ahmad Bhat, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Muhammad Sidiq Shah, Ashraf-bin-Salam, Prof. Javid, Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and Muhammad Ramzan.
