Srinagar, July 12, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that 13th July 1931 is a historic day in Kashmiris’ resistance history. Addressing a mammoth gathering at Shopian Chowk, Muhammad Yasin Malik said, “It was on this day when Kashmiri’s with unity and steadfastness started their struggle for independence from occupation, family and one man’s rule, dictatorship and all kinds of suppressions. Kashmiris sacrificed their blood and made this day a historical and monumental day.”

Yasin Malik was accompanied by other JKLF leaders including Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Mir Mohammad Zaman, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Mushtaq Ajmal, Mohammad Siddeeq Shah, Mushtaq Ahmad khan, Bashir Kaashmiri, professor Javed, Noor Mohammad Katjoo, Showkat Dar ,Shahid Makaya, President Pulwama Javed Ahmad Butt and President Kulgam Abdul Sattar.

After Friday prayers a mammoth procession led by Yasin Malik was taken out. The participants raised slogans in favour of Azadi, martyrs and resistance. After reaching central chowk this procession turned into a public rally.

In his speech, the JKLF Chairman while paying rich tributes to Kashmiri martyrs said that the history of martyrdom started from 13th July 1931, when people of Kashmir refused to accept slavery ,dictatorship, one man’s and family rule and started a new journey towards freedom and prosperity.

“Kashmir’s defeated the dictatorial ruler’s called Maharajas but because of our ill fate and misfortune, the defeated maharaja’s were replaced by new kind of maharajas and maharani’s. These new kings and queens wearing the gowns of ‘democracy’ proved much worse.”

Yasin Malik said that the psychological tweak between old kings and dictators and these new kings and queens is such that our new kings and queens have even chose to live in same palaces, huts ,jungles and areas which were once residences of old maharaja’s
