JKLF’s ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’ continues in IOK

Srinagar, June 04, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the “Jail Bharo Tehreek” of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKL-F) against choking political space and oppressive behaviour continued, today, as another group of JKLF leaders and activists led by Zonal General Secretary, Sheikh Abdul Rashid courted arrest in Srinagar.

Those who courted arrests also included Abdul Rashid Magloo, Ghulam Mohammad Dar, Molvi Reyaz Ahmad Kumhar, Ghulam Qadir Butt, Bashir Ahmad Mir, Muhammad Azhar Ganai, Ghulam Mohammad Malla, Abdul Rehman Gujri and Shehnawaz Ahmad Mir. Earlier, a protest rally led by Sheikh Abdul Rashid was taken out at the Press Enclave where JKLF leaders and activists chanting slogans in favour of freedom, martyrs and liberation movement courted arrest.

Before courting arrest, the JKLF leader Sheikh Abdul Rashid, who led Thursday’s arrests, while talking to people present on the occasion, said that pro- India politicians and parties were making tall claims of being democratic but the fact was that the people had no guts to compete resistance camp on political front and they felt safe only by choking political space of resistance camp.

Sheikh Abdul Rashid said that be it PDP or NC or Congress or BJP or other small parties all are equally partners in suppressing people of Kashmir. He said that JKLF had started the Jail Bharo campaign as a protest against the puppet regime’s policy of choking political space and other oppressive measures against JKLF and other resistance parties.

He said that JKLF has pledged to take the sacred movement of martyrs to its logical end and would never allow any body to change the demography and special status of Kashmir. The JKLF Vice Chairman Advocate Bashir Ahmad Butt, addressing on the occasion, said that stopping peaceful political activities couldn’t be tolerated and that was why JKLF had decided to resist the anti-democratic policies of so-called rulers. He said that JKLF will continue its fight against oppression.
