Srinagar, January 19 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Indian police arrested the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, during an anti-India demonstration in Srinagar, today.

Muhammad Yasin Malik was leading a protest against the recent remarks of Indian Army Chief, General Bipin Rawat, in Maisuma area of Srinagar when the police took him into custody. He was first detained at Kothi Bagh police station and later shifted to Srinagar Central Jail.

General Rawat had on Wednesday stated that the people of Kashmir cannot get freedom from India.

Prior to the rally and arrest, the JKLF Chairman talking to media said that threats by the Indian army chief cannot prevent Kashmiris from their resistance against India’s illegal occupation. He said Kashmiris have and will never surrender before might and fascism and march towards freedom will continue till taking it to its logical end.

He said that by issuing such statements, the Indian army chief is actually paving way for mass killings in Kashmir. “We want to tell the Indian General that he may be following the dictates of Nagpur to kill Kashmiris but he should at the same time remember that enduring oppression is not new for Kashmiris as in past too we have stood firm against Indian state terrorism.”

Recalling various attacks by Indian army and agencies in past, Yasin Malik said that in 1995 Indian forces fired rockets, bullets and bombs on Syed Ali Gilani’s residence to kill him. Similarly, he said Indian army blasted Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone’s residence and a bomb was placed in a vehicle in which he (Yasin Malik), Syed Ali Gilani and others were travelling from Sopore.

He said that Indian forces had killed thousands of Kashmiris in every nook and corner of the territory. He said that Indian forces arrested and tortured thousands, thousands were disappeared in their custody and thousands deprived of their eyesight by pellet terrorism.
