Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik today said the massacre of more than three lakh Muslims at Jammu on November 6, 1947 is the "blackest day" in human history.
Recalling the sacrifices rendered by Muslims of Jammu in 1947, Malik, in a statement said, "November 6, 1947, represents the blackest day of human history when lakh's of Jammu Muslims, driven out of their homes were butchered by communal fascist forces patronized by rulers of that time. The Jammu massacre 1947 reminds us the brutal and criminal face of fascism and the criminal silence of international community on these kinds of massacres exposes its duplicity and double standards."
"When all this was happening in Jammu, Kashmiri Muslims stood for communal harmony as taught by their great religion Islam, and despite provocations safeguarded their non- Muslim brethren living in Kashmir," Malik said.
Terming recent armed rallies of RSS in Chenab and Pir Panchal as "bullying" Muslims living in these areas, Malik said, "These RSS rallies in Pir Panchal and Chenab valley are a reminder of growing threat of fascism in these areas."
"PDP led regime is facilitating RSS mindset in Jammu, Pir Panchal and Chenab. After assuming power in Jammu Kashmir PDP/BJP coalition have actually given a free hand to the same mindset that was responsible for Jammu like massacres in 1947. Today Jammu, Doda, Bhaderwah, Kishtwar, Rajouri, Poonch ,Ladakh and even Kashmir is being polluted by this mindset and rulers for their lust of power are ready to obey every order of Nagpur to fulfill its ugly agenda on Jammu Kashmir," he said.
Paying rich tributes to recently slain youth Qaiser Ahmad Sofi of Shalimar, Malik strongly condemned the police attack on his funeral at Safakadal. "They kill our kith and kin and use pellets and shells to keep us away from mourning on them," he said expressing heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.
Expressing concern over the worsening health condition of incarcerated JKLF zonal vice president Muhammad Yasin Butt, he said, "Denying medical facility to incarcerated people is criminal."
"Muhammad Yasin Bhat who is languishing in Central Jail Srinagar is ill from last many days. He has survived a heart attack recently and is living on life saving drugs since then. He was attended by the doctors at central jail who recommended him to be shifted to hospital but authorities till now are showing no concern and have not shifted him to any hospital for a proper treatment," Malik said, condemning the prolonged incarceration of JKLF activist in Sopore Molvi Reyaz who despite being granted bail is not released by the police.
