Kashmiris have lost a friend: Malik
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 21: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday condemned, what he said, “the inhuman custodial killing” of Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi.
“Such steps should be disapproved in all circumstances,” said Malik in a statement. “In the death of Gaddafi people of Jammu and Kashmir have lost their friend,” he added.
“We recognize that bad democracy is better than good dictatorship in everyway.
But the inhuman way Muammar Gaddafi was killed in custody is against all the international laws and detrimental to interest of peace and stability in the world. Whether it is Gaddafi or anyone else, custodial killing of a human being is an act of terrorism and if world community approves or glamorizes such acts, the real peace in the world would be a far fetched dream. Such acts would only promote hatred, enmity and instability in the world. All conscientious people of the world should rise to the occasion and initiate practical steps against this lawlessness and Jungle Raj.”
The JKLF chairman said, “Although we believe that the system based on democracy and equality is the best system and a bad democracy is better than good dictatorship but that does not mean that somebody should like a beast kill the other human beings thereby tearing into shreds the international justice and laws. Yesterday Gaddafi was killed in custody in full public gaze of the world and his mortal remains were desecrated like anything. Had this act been committed by any enemy of the international powers, the whole world and international media would have condemned the action and termed it as an act of terrorism.”
Malik criticized the international community for remaining silent over custodial killing of Gaddafi, saying that they needed to change this kind of attitude of double standards.
Remembering Gaddafi, Malik said although he (Gaddafi) was a dictator but he was a brave human being. “He raised his voice in the UNO and other international forums for the freedom and independence of Kashmir. He had raised his against sending Shaheed Muhammad Maqbool Bhat to gallows. In his death, the people of Jammu Kashmir have lost their friend,” he said.
