SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday visited SKIMS to enquire about the health condition of the girls injured in Shopian recently.
JKLF chief visited SKIMS after being released on bail from central jail Srinagar. He was accompanied by JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Ghulam Muhammad Dar, Tehreek-I-Mazahamat chairman Bilal Ahmad Sideeqi and others.
A party statement said Malik met with the attendants of all these injured and expressed solidarity with them.
He also enquired about their condition from doctors and praised their efforts in saving their lives.
Malik in a statement said that “trigger happy” forces are deployed to kill Kashmiris at will and the only job of pro-India Kashmiri politicians, rulers and assembly members is to provide legal cover to these “killers”.
He said the government led by a woman has started targeting Kashmiri women with bullets and pellets.
“In recent past, two Kashmiri women namely Maisera Bano of Handwara and Beauty Jan of Shupian fell to the bullets of Indian forces and now two girls have been again showered with bullets and injured critically,” he said.
“All this is being done to terrorise Kashmiri masses especially women folk to stop them from participating in resistance against illegal control and oppression. In past, attacks on the chastity of women and braid chopping were used to intimidate women of Kashmir and history bears a witness that all these oppressive acts have failed to suppress the resilience of Kashmiris especially our honourable women who have resolved to continue their resistance till the achievement of the sacred goal,” Malik said.
On the occasion, JKLF chairman while consoling the kith and kin of those injured prayed for their early recovery.
