Academics politicized: Yasin Malik
Srinagar, Aug 3: Coming down heavily on the state government for its unwillingness to extend summer vacation, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Friday said that “shameless rulers have ordered opening of schools despite humid and hot weather conditions because they want participation of children in 15 August functions”.
“The rulers posing more loyal than the king have ordered opening of schools despite humid and hot weather conditions because they want children to participate in coming 15th August functions. This is yet another evidence of their intellectual bankruptcy,” JKLF chief Muhammad Yasin Malik, according to a JKLF handout, said while addressing a gathering at Sonawari.
Mincing no words in castigating mainstream parties, Malik said ,“This loyal than the king syndrome has drained away all the human abilities from the pro-India politicians and they are not able to see the plight of children in scorching heat and also the wounds caused by the dogs on the bodies of our innocent children.”
Malik did not stop here.
“The pro- India politicians and their parties for the sake of making their children’s future bright, provide Indian forces the free license to kill common Kashmiris at will.”
Asserting that issue of Jammu and Kashmir is posing a continuous threat to the peace, stability, progress and prosperity of the subcontinent, Malik said repression and lies cannot alter the real historical facts.
Malik said that taking small steps or short-term measures can never undermine the importance of the resolution of Kashmir issue.
“India and Pakistan must recognize the status of the Kashmiris and with the active participation of Kashmiris should sit together and resolve this issue on preferred basis,” he said.
Malik said that the killings and brutalizing the youth is continuing unabated across the state.
“Forces are continuing this crime without any fear or shame. Why is this happening? Why are these forces so fearless and shameless? What gives these forces the required confidence needed for committing such heinous crimes time and again, asked Yasin? Yasin said that these forces are equipped with the special confidence provided to them by the Indian parliament and state assembly. Laws like AFSPA, Arms Act, PSA etc are passed by the members of these houses,” he said.
Malik said that mainstream leaders, their parties and government is equally responsible for the massacres of Kashmiri youth.
Malik condemned the “continued repression” in Hajin Sonawari. Yasin said that youth are being at a regular basis arrested by police and forces in the area.
“These boys are released after taking ransom from them. They are also ordered to join mainstream parties in the police stations,” he added.
Later, a huge demonstration led by Malik was taken out in the area against the alleged repression unlashed in the area.
Malik was accompanied by JKLF leaders Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Mushtaq Ajmal, Mushtaq A Khan, Muhammad Sideeq Shah, Mir Siraj-ud-Din, Prof Javed, Bashir Kashmiri, Showkat Ahmad Dar, Abdur Rashid Magloo, Abdul. Qayoom, Ghulam Qadir Khan and others.
