Instead of issuing statements, highlight miseries of Kashmiris : Malik to Pak PM


SRINAGAR: While reacting to a recent statement on independence of Kashmir by Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khanqan Abbasi, Jammu Kashmir liberation front (JKLF), Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik today said that Kashmiris are being brutalized, terrorized and are passing through a tough time.

He said, “In these testing times, instead of issuing statements that may create confusion among the ranks and files of Kashmiris, it is prudent to highlight the miseries of Kashmiris across the globe”.

Reacting to the statement, JKLF chairman said that from last 70 years Kashmiri people are rendering valuable sacrifices for their right of self determination and freedom and have sacrificed Lakhs of our young and old for achieving this sacred goal. He said that if one only takes note of last one year, thousands of Kashmiris have been killed, maimed and injured by Indian bullets, pellets, shells and other oppressive measures.

Malik said that thousands are languishing in jails and incarceration centers and no one seems to pay any heed towards these miseries. He said that thousands of our young have been blinded during these days and number of those injured is much beyond this. JKLF chairman said that Indian rulers want to defeat Kashmiris by finishing their resistance and for achieving this ugly goal they have started a new oppressive campaign of NIA, ED terror.

“Many resistance leaders and even kith and kin of many others have been incarcerated in Delhi Jails. In these circumstances any statement that may create confusion among the ranks and files of Kashmiris is not advisable and should be avoided in any case. Instead of issuing controversial statements, Pakistani leadership needs to enhance its efforts in highlighting the miseries of Kashmiri people and bring forth the gross human rights violations that are continuing in Jammu Kashmir”, he said.
