Srinagar,February 16,2017 CNS: Reacting to the recent statement of India’s army chief, JKLF chairperson Muhammad Yasin Malik on Thursday said, General Bipin’s statement is a direct threat to the Kashmiri nation.

In a press statement issued by JKLF, Malik said, “Threats and intimidations cannot break the will of nations that have resolved to break the shackles of illegal occupation.”

Terming Bipin’s statement as ‘absurd’, Malik in a statement said, “Issuing such statements has shown his anti-human attitude and lack of political wisdom.”

Terming the statement as an open invitation to many (youths) for picking up arms, Malik said, “India’s army chief must realize that he cannot scare a nation that has sacrificed more than a hundred thousand of its men, women, youth and children during the on-going resistance movement.”

“What army chief has said may add to the miseries of Kashmiris but it will also push many youth to the wall and drive them towards arms struggle and hence promote violence in this region.” (CNS)
