Srinagar,September 28,2015-CNS:-Chairman JKLF Muhammad Yasin Malik along with JKLF vice chairman Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi remained under house arrest for six days while as JKLF zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri ,JKLF district president Pulwama Javed Ahmad Butt ,activists Muhammad Altaf Raina and Khizar Muhammad Davoodi were languishing in different police stations. Also many other JKLF leaders and activists were also either raided or asked to submit themselves at police stations.
Terming this prolonged incarceration of thousands of political activists and leaders of different resistance parties, nocturnal raids, restrictions and other oppressive measures unleashed by PDP led so-called government in Kashmir on the eve of Eid ul Zuha, as ugliest face of oppression, JKLF incarcerated chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said that from 1988 when new phase of freedom struggle started, never have been such suppression unleashed on Kashmiris on Eid days. Yasin Malik said that it has been a common practice throughout these years that occupational Government at least announced the release of prisoners from jails on Eid days, but a government that came into existence after betraying people by hypocritical slogans like “battle of ideas” and “no bullet but talks” caged down whole Kashmir, snapped communication of Jammu Kashmir with the world and hence pushed Kashmir back to stone age, arrested thousands of people and hence deprived them a chance to celebrate Eid with their loved ones on this sacred occasion. Yasin Malik said that today hundreds and thousands of young and old Kashmiris are languishing in police stations, jails, interrogation centers and many have been placed under house arrest from last many days. They have not been allowed to pray on Eid and celebrate their Eid with their families. He said that this is in-fact a direct interference in religious affairs of Muslims and these brazen-faced rulers have no shame or dignity left. Yasin Malik said that PDP/BJP government is actually run from Nagpur and therefore their Muslim and Kashmir animosity is no surprise for us but this should serve as an eye opener for those who knowingly or unknowingly got betrayed by the sugar courted poisonous slogans of PDP and other Pro-India parties and leaders and committed the crime of casting votes for them. Yasin Malik said that the way that Kashmir valley has been turned into a police state even on the occasion of Eid by so-called rulers is enough evidence of state sponsored terrorism and we strongly condemn this unilateral violence.
