JKLF to organize protests
Srinagar, Jan 19: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front has decided to organize protests on the second and 20th of every month to highlight the plight of detainees in jails and against the life sentences awarded to pro-freedom Kashmiris.
The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the executive members of the JKLF held at Maqbool Manzil, Maisuma, here today with its chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik in chair.
The meeting decided that on second of every month the protesters, carrying candles and torches, will march at Madina Chowk, Gaw Kadal, here and on 20th of every month they will hold silent dharna at Pratap Park here. “Not only Front leaders and activists but also the friends and relatives of detainees will also participate in these marches,” said a spokesman of the Front in a statement today.
