Srinagar, March 23 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, has called for complete shutdown in the territory, tomorrow (Sunday), against the banning of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front by the Indian government.

The Indian government banned the JKLF led by illegally detained Muhammad Yasin Malik yesterday for its pro-freedom activities. Yasin Malik is presently lodged at Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu under draconian law, Public Safety Act.

The JRL in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, appealed to the people to observe complete shutdown, tomorrow (Sunday), to protest against the ban.

“The order to ban Jamaat-e-Islami and JKLF is nothing but an act of political vengeance and an oppressive tactic to suppress the just movement of people of Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian government’s decision to ban the organisations peacefully striving for the resolution of Kashmir dispute, will not cow down the people.” the statement said.

It added that the Indian government wants to push people to wall for raising the demand to get their rights but it will not make pro-freedom leadership to crumble.
