Says only oppressive regimes keep people in incarceration centres
SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik led a protest rally at Aanchar Soura on Friday to express solidarity with thousands of Kashmiris languishing in jails and police stations and against the persecution of Muslims in Myanmar.
Malik earlier addressed a gathering at Jenab Sahib Soura and said that suppressing people’s voices by killings and incarcerating people can only be termed as ‘worst dictatorship’, a statement issued by JKLF said.
“Only oppressive authoritarian regimes keep people in jails and incarcerations centers,” Malik said.
Stressing on unity and steadfastness, Malik said that Islam teaches unity and oneness and “if we are able to safeguard our unity and remain steadfast in our struggle, no power on earth can ever defeat us”.
He said that not many nations have “given sacrifices for freedom of their land like Kashmiris and only thing we need to do now is to remain steadfast”.
Terming Kashmiris languishing in jails and police stations as prisoners of conscience, Malik said that “black Laws like PSA and investigating agencies like NIA are being used to jail and intimidate people”.
Condemning the massacre of Muslims in Rakhine state of Myanmar, Malik said international community has stood as a mere spectator to ethnic cleansing, and exodus of Rohingyas.
Expressing solidarity with Muslims in Myanmar, Malik said that Muslims are like one body and one soul and “any Muslim facing hardship anywhere in the world should pains us”.
Stressing on the need for immediate international intervention in this matter, Malik said that failure of international community in resolving the disputes, and issues confronting humans has jeopardized the peace, prosperity and tranquility of the whole universe
