Front rallies against killings of Muslims in Myanmar
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front has said that putting common people in jails, intimidations and threats amount to trampling of democratic and human norms.
“A nation that has been facing military and police wrath of Indian occupation from last 70 years cannot be intimidated by jails, NIA and other acts of state sponsored aggression,” chairman JKLF, Muhammad Yasin Malik, said while condemning “state sponsored violence throughout Kashmir valley” as JKLF leaders and activists stage a protest against “NIA intimidation, incarceration, and massacre of Muslims in Myanmar”.
Expressing solidarity with thousands of young and old, men and women, “who face Indian wrath” from Tihar Jail to jails in Jammu Kashmir, JKLF chairman said that thousands of young and old, including ailing women leader Asiya Andrabi and her associate Fahmida Sofi, were facing “Indian oppression in different jails and incarceration centres”.
He said that many resistance activists including Shabir Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Shahid ul Islam, Altaf Ahmad Shah , Meraj ud din Kalwal, Pir Saif ullah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Farooq Ahmad Dar, businessman Zahoor Ahmad Watali and journalists Kamran Yousuf and Javed Ahmad have been put behind bars by NIA or ED on concocted charges while as thousands including JKLF district president Ganderbal Bashir Ahmad Rather, Moulana Sarjan Barkati, Atif Hassan, Irfan Ahmad , Amir Hamza, Mir Hafizullah, Muhammad Yousuf Falahi , Abdul Gani Bhat, Muhammad Yousuf Baghwan and many more remain in jails under black law PSA.
He said that people without the discrimination of age and gender have been locked up in jails and police stations and all this is being done in the name of so-called democracy and raising the bogey of law and order. Similarly NIA has been let loose to “terrorize freedom seeking people under the pretext of so-called terror funding”. The agency, besides arresting many people has continued its efforts to “threaten people”.
