LoC putting Kashmiris in a constant pain: Malik
SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday said the “bloody red line” called LoC is dividing the “nation of Jammu Kashmir” like Berlin Wall was used to divide the East and West Germans.
In a statement, Malik said, “Kashmiris on either side of this bloody red line are fighting for the just cause of freedom and national independence besides striving for the reunification of their motherland just like Germans.”
He said JKLF has decided to support a program by former Prime Minister of “Azad Kashmir” Barrister Sultan Mehmood Choudhary at the site of erstwhile Berlin Wall in Germany on 27th October this month.
He said Choudhary called him and apprised him about the protest program. “Barrister sahib asked for JKLF support to the proposed program. As such, JKLF has decided to support this program keeping in view the symbolism and importance of (the) demolition of Berlin Wall and its semblance with LoC dividing the people of Jammu Kashmir. Such events will surely highlight the miseries and agonies of the people of Jammu Kashmir.”
JKLF chairman said a “living nation” has been separated by the Line of Control (LoC) which has divided not only families but also the emotions, sentiments and ethnicities associated with Jammu Kashmir. “This forced and unwanted line of separation has also divided brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers from their sons and daughters, putting these humans in a constant pain,” he said.
Malik said the proposed protest program of Barrister Sultan Mehmood Choudhary stands symbolically important and Kashmiris living across the globe should support it.
“JKLF leaders, activists and units located in Germany, France, UK, Brussels, Denmark, USA, Canada, Holland and other places especially in Europe, (should) make necessary arrangements in this regard and participate in the proposed protest program with passion and enthusiasm,” the JKLF chief said.
