Liberation struggle will continue till success: Yasin Malik Human Rights

Srinagar, October 30, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Mohammad Yasin Malik has said that the ongoing protests will continue as part of liberation struggle till success.

Mohammad Yasin Malik addressing a news conference in Srinagar today said the campaign against the leaders spreading the ongoing strike is aimed at defaming the movement and should be condemned.

Thanking the masses especially students for the continued Intifada, the JKLF Chairman said that it was because of common Kashmiri people that the Kashmir dispute was back on the international forums. “It is because of the lives that youth sacrificed and the eyes they lost that Kashmir is now again being discussed on global level,” Malik said.

Yasin Malik said such a large movement that involves every section of the society and the length and breadth of Kashmir can neither be instigated by some people nor by any country. “Its size suggests, it has to be indigenous,” he insisted, adding this is the outcome of the suppression and torture of youth that Delhi launched in Kashmir in last one year. Sharply reacting over the recent remarks of the puppet Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti that she is the biggest human rights activist and people who took guns in 1989 were ‘illiterates’, Malik asked her, was Ishfaq Majeed an illiterate?, was Dr Guru an illiterate?, was Najeeb Khateeb an illiterate?, and was Salah-u-din an Illiterate?”

Yasin Malik reacted to the propaganda launched by Delhi media over the children of Hurriyet leaders. “I have not seen my daughter for last two years, ask me how it feels and they say that my daughter is safer with her mother,” Malik said. “Where was their conscience when my wife and daughter were thrown out of a hotel at 10:00pm in Delhi?” Malik said Delhi wants to foil the movement by defaming its captains, its leaders – Gilani, Mirwaiz, Aasiya Andrabi and me.

On the burning of schools, Yasin Malik pointed fingers towards PDP, saying: “When they could burn down temples in Islamabad and Bijbehara to topple down Gul Shah’s regime in 1984 then why can’t they burn down schools now?” he asked. The JKLF Chairman said the continued ransacking of private properties by forces is aimed at misleading people that things are normal in Kashmir. He said there are 10,000 people in detention.

Muhammad Yasin Malik, who was arrested after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen Commander, Burhan Muzaffar Wani on 8th July, was released from jail, yesterday.
