Denounces int’l community’s silence on Kashmir
SINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Wednesday visited visited SMHS hospital here and met with the pellet and bullet victims.
Malik was accompanied by JKLF vice chairman Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and Imtiyaz Ahmad, a party spokesperson in a statement issued here said.
He said Malik met with some pellet and bullet victims including Qaiser Ahmad Butt, Umar Farooq, Soorat Majeed Butt, Faisal Ahmad Lone, Irfan Ahmad Dar, Gulzar Ahamd, Aqeel Ahmad, Ishfaq Ahmad Wani and Shakir Ahmad and enquired about their well being.
Most of these injured among whom many have lost their vision and are at the brink of losing it, are from south Kashmir, the spokesperson said, adding JKLF chief met with the families of these victims, talked to doctors and enquired about their health status.
In a statement, Malik said since 2016, government is pursuing a policy of kill and maim Kashmiri youth and is snatching the eyesight of these young Kashmiris by pellets.
“It seems that Mehbooba-led regime by obeying the orders of her Nagpur masters has decided to snatch eyesight of more and more Kashmiris and turn them blind. This is why these callous people are hell bent upon using pellets as a tool to achieve their target,” he said.
JKLF chief history will remember the present ruling regime of India and its Kashmiri “stooges” as “killers and mass blinders”. “A weapon that is used to hunt birds and animals is being used to kill, blind and maim humans in Kashmir and the international community to our extreme dismay has been watching all this silently.”
He said no one among the champions of human rights and propagators of humanity is daring to stop Indian rulers from using deadly pellet guns against Kashmiri humans because they fear a jolt to their economic interests in big Indian market.
Malik said the very existence of this world is endangered as economic interest have become more important than humanity, principles and human rights of a poor nation and by adopting such inhuman policies, the international community has turned this world into a more dangerous place to live on.
Meanwhile, the spokesperson said JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, who was arrested on April 6, has been shifted to central jail.
