Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front said on Monday that it will organise a sit-in on Wednesday at Lal Chowk against the “killing spree” in Kashmir, as “killings of our dear ones cannot be tolerated silently”.
JKLF chairman Yasin Malik, who was arrested this morning and then admitted to a hospital for complaints of high-fever and infection, said, “Indians have turned Kashmir into a slaughter house and we have been receiving bodies of our dear ones killed by Indian forces on a daily.”
“This unabated killing spree cannot and will not be tolerated silently and Kashmiris will keep protesting against this state terrorism with passion. The immunity from prosecution has turned these trigger-happy Indian forces into beasts and killing humans has become their hobby,” Malik said in a statement.
Expressing condolences with the families of two students killed in Pulwama on Sunday, Shaista and Danish, Malik said the international community has chosen trade interests over human values by maintaining silence over killings in Kashmir.
The JKLF statement also said that after Malik’s recovery and release, the organisation will chalk out an organized and coordinated programme against the “killing spree so that international community’s sleeping conscience is awoken and Kashmiri youth are saved from Indian oppression”.
