Shifting of detained Yasin Malik to New Delhi condemned » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, April 11 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have strongly denounced the shifting of illegally detained Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik, from Jammu to New Delhi.

Muhammad Yasin Malik was shifted to Delhi’s Tihar Jail on Tuesday after India’s infamous National Investigation Agency (NIA) secured his production remand in the case. Later, a Delhi court sent him to the NIA custody till April 22 in the name of interrogation in a fake case registered against him.

Senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir (TeH), Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “New Delhi should stop intimidating, harassing and detaining the Hurriyat leaders. Instead it should resolve the Kashmir dispute without any further delay.”

He said that the Indian government and secret agencies were targeting the resistance leaders only because they were advocating granting of right to self-determination, which had been acknowledged by not only international community but India also, to the Kashmiris.

Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman said that for electoral gains the ruling dispensation in New Delhi had crossed all limits of brutality in occupied Kashmir. He said that the Modi-led government was using its agencies to malign the Kashmiris’ freedom movement and Hurriyat leadership and misled the people of India through lies and propaganda.

The JKLF Acting Chairman, Abdul Hameed Butt, in a statement denouncing the shifting of incarcerated party chief, Muhammad Yasin Malik, to Delhi said, “Jails are our second home. Such tactics cannot and will never deter us and Kashmiris, who have rendered unflinching sacrifices for the cause of their freedom and right to self-determination.”

He said that Yasin Malik’s aged ailing mother and two sisters were stuck in Jammu since Tuesday morning as they were scheduled to meet him at Kot Bhalwal jail in Jammu. The news of his shifting to Delhi came as a surprise to them, he added.
