Mainstream politicians will surely face divine retribution: Yasin Malik
Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik on Sunday said that bloodbath in Shopian has shattered the entire nation.
"Our young ones are being trampled by New Delhi with the help of local politicians but these politicians who are abetting and ordering this genocide will surely have to face divine retribution for their callousness," the incarcerated chairman of Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front, who along with zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal continues to remain in police custody at police station Kothi-bagh, said in a statement.
"Our hearts are bleeding and souls perforated on watching our kith and kin being butchered mercilessly by the government forces. The blood of four Kashmiris including Adil Ahmad who was crushed under a police vehicle, Showkat Ahmad Tak and Fayaz Ahmad Hamal is still wet as the news of many other Kashmiri youth including unarmed youth Asif Ahmad Mir, Sajad Ahmad Rather, Zubair Ahmad,Yasir Ahmad, Adil Bashir, Nisar Ahmad along with others Saddam Hussain Padder, Touseef Ahmad Sheikh, Adil Ahmad, Bilal Molvi, and professor Muhammad Rafiq Butt who had left home only three days back and embraced martyrdom today is tarnishing the hearts and souls of Kashmiris. This is a clean genocide which the government forces, police and other agencies are perpetrating and which is ordered by leaders sitting in New Delhi and abetted and facilitated by mainstream politicians in Kashmir in the form of PDP-led regime, assembly members and the opposition," Malik said.
"Our youth are first being denied any political space, pushed to the wall and then butchered in cold blood by the forces and those conscience-sellers who for the lust of supremacy can stoop to any low are enjoying the corridors of power without any regret or remorse of this genocide, Malik said.
"We the helpless, stateless and subjugated people of Jammu Kashmir are being forced to take body bags of our kith and kin, our fathers are being forced to shoulder the coffins of their sons and mothers and sisters are being forced to mourn on their loved ones but the tyrants and their supporters should know that from Pharaoh to Hitler every tyrant and oppressor had to taste the fruits of their cruelty. Time is not far when New Delhi and its abettors will also have to face the divine law of retribution and answer for their crimes against humanity in Jammu Kashmir," Malik said.
"Police today arrested JKLF district president Ganderbal Bashir Ahmad Rather (Boya) along with Mushtaq Ahmad Wani (Koreg), Assad ullah Shah and Mushtaq Ahmad Rather at Ganderbal and detained them at a police station. JKLF organizers Siraj Ud din Mir and district president Baramulla Abdul Rashid Magloo are languishing at Kotbalwal jail under PSA. Meanwhile two JKLF delegations visited the families of slain youth in Srinagar and Shopian and expressed solidarity with them," the statement said.
