Mainstream parties responsible: Malik

Shopian, July 31: JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik Tuesday visited Shopian and condemned the alleged killing of Aqib Yousuf Bhat.
“The killing of innocent Aqib by Central Reserve Police Force has once again proved that our young ones are not safe even at their home. The wounds of Bandipora were still bleeding that forces tarnished our hearts and minds by the killing of another youth at Shopian,” Malik said addressing a protest rally.
“Why the blood of our young ones has become so cheap? Why are forces so keen to kill our young and innocent youth?” Yasin questioned and said that while this is a proved fact that black laws like AFSPA give forces a license to kill anybody in Kashmir but at the same time all mainstream parties- National Conference, PDP and Congress- are equally responsible for these killings.
Yasin said theses mainstream politicians and their parties safeguard the interests of government forces, adding their only job is to safeguard the interests of these forces to ensure that their own kith and kin follow them as kings and queens.
Yasin said that every now and then these mainstream politicians do everything possible to bail out these ‘brutal forces.’ Yasin said that no Kashmiri youth is safe ‘until the last man of Indian army and forces is here.’
Yasin asked Kashmiris to be cautious and united in this hour of grief. “We will have to differentiate between friends and foes. An innocent boy who was driving a water tanker was killed by CRPF just because he refused to budge before them. Even two other drivers who are eyewitness to the crime have being kept in custody,” he said.
Yasin said that any country and politician who safeguards criminals like these has no right to claim itself a democratic country or a part of civilized world. Yasin said that peaceful protests against these brutal killings will continue.
After the public gathering, a huge procession which included hundreds of women, men and youth was taken out. The participants of the rally raised slogans in favor of freedom.
Yasin Malik was accompanied by Advocate Bashir Ahmad Butt, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Bashir A. Kashmiri, Ghulam Rasool Hazari, Muhammad Haneef and District President Pulwama Javed Ahmad Bhat.
The delegation reached Shopian after tackling many police hurdles and several hours of travel. Yasin went to the martyr’s graveyard and participated in the burial of Aqib.
