Police arrest JKLF members in Doda

Srinagar, Nov 1: Police on Thursday evening arrested the members of JKLF delegation near Asar while they were on way to Doda.
 The arrestees include advocate Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Showkat Ahmad Bakshi, Bashir Kashmiri, M Sideeq Shah, Ghulam Rasool Hazari, Ghulam  Muhammad Dar and driver of the vehicle Ishtiyaq Ahmad. 
 “A JKLF delegation was moving towards Doda and Kishtwar where people are protesting against the blasphemous acts by some miscreants. The police intercepted the vehicle at Asar and arrested the leaders,” said a spokesman of the Front in a statement today.
 Meanwhile, the chairman of Front Muhammad Yasin Malik, while condemning the arrests, said; “On the one religious sentiments of the Muslims are being hurt and brotherhood, tolerance and harmony is being targeted while on other hand the areas of Jammu province are being turned into no go areas for us. This act of the rulers is a unilateral state terrorism and worst kind of violation of democratic rights.”
 “These arrests and blockades indicate that the rulers are afraid of the popularity of freedom leaders and are using military might to stop our democratic exercises,” said Malik, according to Front statement.
