SRINAGAR: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) took out a protest rally headed by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik at Abi Guzar in Srinagar against the rape and murder of Kathua minor Asifa Bano.
However a large posse of police reached the JKLF’s office at Abi Guzar and detained Yasin Malik who tried to take out a rally towards Lal Chowk against the rape and murder of Kathua minor Asifa Bano.
Earlier, Malik addressed a press conference outside the JKLF office; besides Chairmen parallel factions of Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umer Farooq addressed the rally telephonically.
During the press conference Malik extended his support to Jammu Muslims in their demand for the justice to Kathua minor. “The Joint Resistance Leadership resolves to fight for the justice to Asifa. We demand all the culprits should be hanged,” JKLF Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, said while addressing a protest rally here.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while condemning his house arrest to bar him from JRL’s joint presser at Abi Guzar said that nothing can be more evil and shameless than supporting the rapists and murderers of an 8 year old girl child.
“Nothing can be more evil and shameless than supporting the rapists and murderers of an 8 year old girl child and then threatening the community to which the child belonged with dire consequence”, JRL said.
JRL said that it reflects the total moral bankruptcy of BJP in supporting the front that is threatening the Gujjars in Kathua and completely exposes its communal and anti-humanity mindset for reaping political dividends!” Mirwaiz wrote on twitter. (PTK)
