Malik decries ban on political activities of Hurriyat leaders » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, November 28 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, has said that the puppet authorities have imposed a blanket ban on peaceful political activities of resistance leaders.

Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar said that arresting him and placing Syed Ali Gilani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest had become a common practice for the so-called rulers and their Indian masters who had no courage to fight the resistance leaders on political turf.

“A blanket ban on political activities, incarceration of thousands of old, young, women, men including specially–abled, ailing and minors, reign of terror and torture unleashed throughout the nook and corner of south and north parts of the Kashmir Valley, are actually glaring examples of Indian state terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

The JKLF Chairman said that Indian leaders should realize that the Kashmiris despite all these oppressive measures would continue their struggle till the achievement of their cherished goal of freedom. “It is our firm belief that sooner or later, India will have to bow before Kashmiris’ resistance and accept their right of self-determination.”

He expressed serious concern over the plight of the Kashmiri prisoners languishing in jails and incarceration centers. “Thousands of young and old have been put behind bars under black laws. Similarly, NIA and ED are being used to put more people including Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Altaf Ahmed Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Merajuddin Din Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Zahoor Ahmed Watali, Kamran Yousuf , Javid Ahmed and Shahid Yousuf in Tihar Jail,” he said.

“All this is being done to terrorize and intimidate the Kashmiris so that their resistance is defeated or weakened. Such harsh measures in fact make us more resilient and strong and rejuvenate our passion to fight for freedom,” he said, adding, “Our unity and continuous struggle will surely defeat the designs of our enemies and we will surely achieve our desired goal.”

Meanwhile, the JKLF in a statement in Srinagar paid rich tributes to a youth, Naveed Anjum of Sopore on his martyrdom day. Naveed was martyred on 27th November 1994 in Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu by Indian troops.
