World least bothered about Kashmir struggle: Malik
Warns against hanging Guru
Srinagar, Sep 9: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday said world was “least bothered” about the peaceful struggle of Kashmiris
Addressing a gathering at Karihama Tangmarg, Malik said, Kashmiris have given new lease of life to the peaceful movement by sacrificing their lives and if international community would continue to disrespect it and then people will lose faith in this mode of struggle.
“World talks about peaceful struggle, but in practice they don’t respect it. It is necessary to resolve Afghanistan, Palestine and other outstanding issues in the world, but at the same time, world should also strive for the resolution of Kashmir dispute,” he said.
The JKLF chairman said apathetic attitude of the world community towards Kashmir can give birth to another Afghanistan. “And if it happens, then it will damage the stability and peace of the world beyond repair,” he said.
Malik added that execution of Afzal Guru would prove detrimental for peace in the subcontinent. “New Delhi should understand that they cannot end the movements by hanging people. After Maqbool Bhat was sent to gallows, lakhs of Maqbool Bhats were born and they are still fighting for a cause,” he added.
Expressing concern over detainees, Malik said there was no let up in unilateral violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Our senior leaders and youth, who have been booked under draconian acts, are rotting in jails,” he said, adding this “attitude is undemocratic and imperialistic.”
Malik, according to party handout’ was accorded warm reception on the occasion.
