Arrests won’t break our resolve: Yasin Malik
The incarcerated chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Wednesday castigated the government for not allowing the pro-freedom leaders to visit the Mazar-I-Shuhada.
In a statement here Malik said, "If world cannot show any sympathy towards mourning Kashmiris whose 40 people have fallen to bullets, it should refrain from adding insult to our injuries."
Malik who is in police custody from last six days and is lodged at police station Kothibagh in his message said, "Despite heavy restriction and strict curfew, JKLF activists led by zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal gathered at Habakadal and tried to march towards Mazar I Shuhada according to the joint resistance program but as all roads leading towards Martyrs Graveyad had been sealed by razor wires and other barricades ,the participants staged a strong protest."
JKLF zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri along with activists Arshid Ahmad Butt and Shahid Makaya etc were also present in the protest program.
Malik while condemning arrests, curfew, restrictions, barricades and other oppressive measures meant to stop joint resistance march towards Martyrs graveyard, said that by these measures rulers have actually shown their class and real anti-democratic and anti-people face.
He said that on one hand rulers are busy killing and injuring innocent Kashmiris and on the other hand oppressive measures to suppress peoples voices are also going on unabated.
While condemning the arrest of Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, jailed JKLF chairman said that these arrests cannot deter us from pursuing the path of freedom and protesting the oppressive behavior of India.
