SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday condemned the “police highhandedness and oppression” against the protesting students especially girls, saying the “so-called” rulers and their police have crossed every limit of highhandedness and shame and are hell bent to trample every voice of dissent through military might. In a statement, Malik said, “Kashmiri resilience and steadfastness has shaken the oppressors and whatever is being done by police today is a glaring evidence of the frustration the socalled rulers and their forces are suffering from.” Strongly condemning the police “oppression” unleashed against students across valley on Thursday, JKLF chairman said that peaceful protest against “genocide” is the birth right of every human but Kashmir has been turned into a police state where law of jungle is prevailing and in practice, which is highly condemnable. Meanwhile, a party statement issued here said that JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, zonal vice president Muhammad Yasin Butt along with activists, Muhammad Haneef Dar, Imtiyaz Ahmad Ganaie and Imtiyaz Ahmad shah were arrested by police when they were assembling to hold a peaceful protest against killings. Noor Muhammad has been shifted to police station Zaina Kadal. “Despite police highhandedness, crackdown and oppression, JKLF leaders and activists led by zonal general secretary Sheikh Abdul Rashid managed to gather at Masjid Shareef Abi Guzar where they staged a peaceful protest against Shopian massacre and oppression unleashed on students across valley. On the occasion, JRL memorandum was also read before the press,” the statement said.
