Calling pro-freedom people misguided Delhi’s old ploy: Yasin Malik
Terming the statement of Prime Minister Nerandra Modi as 'illogical', the incarcerated Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Tuesday said it has been old ploy of Indian leaders to deny reality regarding Jammu Kashmir and call millions of Azadi-seeking Kashmiris as 'misled people.'
"Calling overwhelming majority of Kashmiris, asking for Azadi, as misled is the old ploy of Indian leaders," a spokesman of Front, in a statement today, quoted Yasin Malik as having said, adding that "Denying reality cannot change the reality."
"This state of denial has and will yield nothing because denying reality never changes the reality. The reality is that Kashmiris with one voice are demanding freedom and the only way to resolve this human issue is to accept the reality and find some courage to resolve it according to the wishes and aspirations of the people of Jammu Kashmir," Yasin Malik said.
Hailing people for their resolve and sacrifices, Yasin Malik said, "Struggle for freedom demands sacrifices and this journey is always a long and tedious one but the nations which decide to fight the forces of oppression tread this thorny path and finally reach their desired goal. For the last 32 days, Kashmir is burning, our 56 innocents have fallen to the bullets of trigger-happy forces, over 6000 men, women and children have been injured among whom hundreds have lost their eyesight and other vital organs."
"Our passion for brotherhood, philanthropy and social works has always been at high during hard times and everything done in this regard by our youth and elders during past 32 days bear a witness to this fact. Along with the unity on political front, nation of Kashmir also needs oneness on social, economic and religious fronts also."
Stressing upon the need of forging social unity at the level of Mohallas, localities and Masajid, Yasin Malik said, "Elders and Ulema of different Masajid and localities, with the help of others, should try to reach out to poor, downtrodden and affected people and help them in these hard days."
