Commenting on the reports about handing over of hectares of land to the army in Ladakh region, the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik today termed it yet another attempt by New Delhi to the strength the 'control by military might'.
"This will worsen the already fragile ecological balance in Jammu Kashmir," Yasin Malik, in a statement today, adding that "Jammu Kashmir is a forest land area where glaciers, water reservoirs, forests, pastures have been damaged by the presence of more than one million Indian troops. This military might has been used to suppress the voices of freedom in Jammu Kashmir. During last more than two decades one Lakh humans in have been massacred, more than 10000 have been subjected to custodial disappearance and other gross human rights violations stand as a blot on the face of New Delhi. Dumping more and more ammunition, explosives and arms and settling down more and more armies and troops at a land where glaciers, water reservoirs, rivers, forests, pastures and hills are in abundance is against the interests of humanity."
"Kashmiris will strive against all these measures on all fronts," Yasin Malik said.
