Reacting to the Home Minister Rajnath Singh's statement, the incarcerated chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik, said instead of dreaming to change Kashmir, he (Rajnath) should worry about India that, according to Malik, "is bound to change because of BJP's politics of hate, communal divide and fascism."
"Any one dreaming to change Kashmir and Kashmiris by oppression is living in fool's paradise. Kashmiris have been since 1947 witnessing and enduring Indian aggression, oppression, suppression and genocide but this tyranny has not and can never break our resolve and passion for freedom," a spokesman of the Front, in a statement today, quoted Yasin Malik as having said, terming Rajnath Singh's statement as 'provocative and ridiculous'.
Malik said, "Indian Home Minister came here thrice during 2016 mass revolution about which he is always boasting highly. Every time he came, he issued orders to crush kashmiris and PDP led ruling regime acted according to his orders and not only killed hundreds, blinded and injured thousands but filled jails and police stations with young and aged kashmiris. We want to refresh Rajnath Singh Jee's memory that his approach has not worked and will never work in Jammu Kashmir."
He said, "Instead of dreaming to crush and change Kashmir Rajnath jee should worry about his India which is fast changing because of RSS mindset politics and is bound to get divided if this politics of hate, fascism, oppression and communal divide remains as it is now."
"On Rajnath Singh assertion about 'crushing Kashmiri resistance youth' and supporting Indian army chief's 'fire to kill policy', How many Kashmiris will India kill and jail as most recently on 9th April 2017, 97% Kashmiris have in one voice rejected India and raised their voice for freedom. These intimidations have not and can never break our resolve and passion and our journey towards freedom will continue till the achievement of the desired goal," he added.
Meanwhile, the zonal president of JKLF Noor Muhammad Kalwal along with others today visited SMHS hospital and enquired about the health condition of recently injured person. The leaders expressed solidarity with these injured people for their speedy recovery.
Kalwal has also expressed his grief and sorrow over the demise of Abdul Khaliq Dar of Katrasoo Kulgam.
