Islamabad, March 08 (KMS): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has strongly condemned the detention of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik and spokesman of Jamaat-e-Islami of occupied Kashmir, Advocate Zahid Ali, under draconian Public Safety Act (PSA).
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement in Islamabad also denounced the arrest of hundreds of other Hurriyat leaders and activists, wave of crackdown and search operations across the territory and criminal assault on Kashmiri street vendors and Kashmiri students by Hindu extremists in various cities of India.
He lamented the role of Indian regime that horrible atmosphere had been created for the Kashmiris in their own land and even Muslims in India were not spared and beaten by Hindu fanatics, Indian army, police and goons in an organised manner, as if the Kashmiris were sub-humans, who had no rights as human beings.
The JKPFL Chairman warned that the present Kashmir phobia and Islamphobia had dangerous potential to bring disaster to the region and the Indians or others would not control it. He urged the UN Secretary General and other big powers to address the worsening regional situation and impress upon India to settle the Kashmiri dispute by allowing the Kashmiris decide their fate by themselves.
Farooq Rehmani urged Pakistan to build a proactive diplomatic and political pressure to help the people of Kashmir get out from the current horrors of the Indian onslaught against their genuine political and peaceful struggle. He felt sorry to say that under the present situation the Kashmiris’ basic rights had been squeezed brutally.
He also termed yesterday’s bomb blast in Jammu bus stand as another pretentious act to malign and kill the Kashmiris and the Muslims of Jammu to build election campaign for the fanatic BJP.
