Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front will lead a protest rally against the issuing of domicile certificates to West Pakistan refugees on Friday, a Front spokesman said here on Thursday.
"Malik has already gone into hiding and will lead a protest after Friday prayers against issuing of domicile certificates to West Pakistan refugees and poor condition of inmates in various jails," said the spokesman. He said the ruling dispensation has decided to "change the Muslim majority status of the state."
"Rulers and their civil and police authorities have choked space for peaceful political activities. To evade arrest, JKLF chairman has gone into hiding and will lead a protest after Friday prayers," he said.
The spokesman strongly condemned the "oppression unleashed against Kashmiri inmates languishing in different jails."
While condemning the prolonged detention of JKLF vice chairman Showkat Ahmad Bakshi, who has been shifted from Bemina police station to Kothibagh here, the front spokesman said that despite court orders Bakshi is not being released.
Meanwhile, JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement said that police is using every illegal tactic to prolong the incarceration of Kashmiri prisoners which is highly condemnable. He also condemned the incarceration of JKLF district president Baramullah Abdul Rashid Magloo who is languishing in Kreeri police station and despite court order is not being released by police.
