SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, on Saturday questioned the silence maintained by the international community over Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, Malik said, “Kashmiris are being killed and brutalized on daily basis, but the international conscience is refusing to wake up from its deep slumber. How long will this criminal silence remain?”
Malik said the silence of international community was “criminal” and needs to be “shunned immediately”.
He appealed the international community to take a note of sufferings of the people of Kashmir.
“Kashmiris are also humans, human blood is also running through our veins, and we also deserve sympathy and attention,” he said.
He said the pro-India politicians preaching “high values, morality and ethics” should introspect feel “ashamed on being directly involved” in civilian deaths and injuries.
“Pro-India politicians and parties are actually the handle of Indian axe that has been brutalizing Kashmiris for the last many decades,” he said, condemning the killing of three more civilians.
The JKLF chairman said that “so-called rulers”, who are talking of “so-called high morals” should, instead of justifying these killings, answer for their “brutal behavior”.
“Time and again, people of Jammu and Kashmir have, without any ambiguity and illusion, and are voicing their opinion and sentiment about a free Jammu and Kashmir. Those who still deny this peoples demand are living in absurdity and delusion,” he said.
Meanwhile various JKLF leaders including its vice-chairmen, and deputy chief organiser addressed gatherings in parts of north Kashmir.
The JKLF vice-chairman advocate Bashir Ahmad Butt visited Aanchar, Soura, and addressed a gathering at Jenab sahib Soura.
