Srinagar, February 16 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that free hand given to hooligans by the administration in Jammu is highly condemnable.

Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned the attacks on Muslims and Kashmiris in Jammu and many parts of India in vengeance of the recent Pulwama attack. He said the silence of saner elements, civil society and liberals of Jammu on the hooliganism of chauvinist attacks on Muslims and Kashmiris amounts to criminal attitude of these people.

Terming the attacks on Kashmiris and Muslims as most reprehensible and act of cowardice, the JKLF Chairman said it has been an old practice of fascists in Jammu to stand against Muslims and Kashmiris on every issue and aspect be it social, religious, political or even criminal in nature.

He said in 1947, Jammu chauvinists massacred more than three hundred thousand Muslims and changed the demography of that land. With the active support of erstwhile Mahraja and his forces, hooligans besieged thousands of Muslims, massacred, looted and vandalized them and thus changed the demography of Jammu in 1947, he added.

On the other hand, he said, Kashmiris not only safeguarded minorities in Kashmir but provided them shelter and defended religious harmony in Kashmir and even Ghandi acknowledged that gesture of Kashmiri Muslims had to say that if there is any hope for humanity it is in Kashmir.

Denouncing attacks on Kashmiris in Indian states, the JKLF chairman said though assaults on Kashmiri students, businessmen, workers, officials working in different institutions under this and that pretext is not new but when these attacks and attackers are backed by rulers and their threat calls, these become more cold-hearted and shameful.

He also expressed grief and sorrow over the demise of Ghulam Rasool Dar, father of illegally detained resistance leader Farooq Ahmad Dar.
