Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman, Yasin Malik was arrested on Monday from the party office at Abi Guzar, a JKLF statement issued here said.
The statement added that Malik was later sent to central jail Srinagar on a judicial remand.
Before his arrest Malik while talking to reporters said that putting people behind bars has become “a dear custom of Mehbooba Mufti led regime.”
Stating that the “so-called rulers” only believe in “suppressing” people’s voices by military might, Malik said that Kashmir has been turned into a “killing field” where on daily basis “educated young boys are being killed in cold blood”.
“Whosoever comes on roads to challenge Indian occupation and military cum police terrorism is being showered with bullets, pellets and shells resulting in deaths, injuries, blinding and destruction,” Malik said.
Talking about the recent killings at Dialgam and Shadi Marg Malik said that while Tahira Bano and Shadab Ahmad Chopan were killed along with “many warriors” the “so-called rulers instead of showing some remorse on this human tragedy claimed vengeance and hatred which actually shows their fascist ill-mindset.”
“India considers Jammu Kashmir as its occupied colony and that is why it has no respect for human tragedies and miseries here and its leadership is driving sadistic pleasure from the spilling of more and more blood,” Malik said adding that if freedom movements of nations were to be finished by military might and oppression, no country including India could have achieved its freedom.
