SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday strongly condemned the “brutal” killing of a mentally-unsound person Habibullah of Soibugh who was killed by forces Sunday night.
“When soldiers are provided immunity from prosecution, they turn into monsters that can kill anyone anywhere,” Malik said in a statement and expressed solidarity with the bereaved family.
He condemned the ongoing “police oppression” against JKLF activists in north Kashmir areas.
“JKLF district secretary Molvi Reyaz was arrested by police some four days back and is still languishing in police station Choura. Similarly, police at Handwara raided the residences of JKLF senior activists Abdul Aziz Lone, Abdul Majeed Shah and Muhammad Amin and have summoned them to police stations,” Malik said.
“Every little space on peaceful political activities has been choked and even mourning has been banned by the so-called largest democracy and its police,” JKLF chief said.
