SRINAGAR: Jailed chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Thursday hailed the youth who saved the lives of accident-hit pilgrims at Bijbehara in south Kashmir saying “the behavior of authorities is to kill but ours is to save lives”.
In a statement issued here, Malik said the youth who saved the lives of accident-hit pilgrims deserve appreciation and are our heroes. “Saving human lives is our behavior and taking lives by firing and stopping ambulances is theirs,” he said.
“At a time when Indian soldiers and their Kashmiri stooges are busy killing our young boys, girls, and children, this act of kindness by Kashmiri youth has made us proud,” Malik said.
“This is what our religion Islam teaches us and this is what Kashmiris are known for,” he added. Malik further added: “India, its biased media and Kashmiri stooges should remember that tyranny, oppression, and falsehood won’t live long. The day is not far when killers of innocent Kashmiris and their abettors will have to answer for their crimes against humanity.”
Paying tributes to martyrs, Malik reiterated that their blood will not go waste. He also prayed for the early recovery of the injured persons. Referring to the killing of a youth Shabir Ahmad Mir of Tengpora Batamaloo, the pro-freedom leader alleged: “As per the eyewitnesses, this innocent youth was dragged out of his home by an SDPO and killed in cold blood. This is how many young Kashmiris have been murdered by the men in uniform.”
Condemning the attacks on ambulances by CRPF and police, Malik said even during war times, ambulances and injured are spared. “But India which claims to be the biggest democracy in the world has let loose its forces and ordered them not to spare even the injured and ambulances. The so-called rulers who talk about morality and democracy should at least stop their terrorist forces from doing such acts,” he said.
Meanwhile, as per statement, JKLF continued its efforts to reach out to the injured in the hospitals.
