SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday said “the brutal assassination of political leaders and activists like Mir Hafizullah and unrelenting spree of killings of young Kashmiris across the valley amounts to annihilation of an entire generation”.

“Wilful Indian killing machine has gone out of control in Kashmir but no one in the international community seems to bother or take a serious note of it,” Malik, who is in police custody since November 19, said in a statement issued here.

“Indian forces have unleashed a rampage against Kashmiris as crackdowns, killings, beating torturing and humiliating common people, incarcerating political activists, leaders and students and other oppressive measures have been expedited in recent months and all this is being done to suppress democratic voices of Kashmiris which is highly condemnable,” Malik said.

He also termed the recent shifting of Kashmiri prisoners as most autocratic and atrocious act, saying that “terrorising, tormenting and torturing inmates and their families is illegal, obnoxious and most reprehensible act”.

Meanwhile, JKLF leaders and activists staged a peaceful protest against the killing of Hurriyat leader Mir Hafizullah and “unrelenting oppression” unleashed by forces across the valley. They also condemned the continued detention of JKLF chairman and said that Malik is being arrested and incarcerated every now and then which has deteriorated his heath.

Meanwhile, JKLF has paid rich tributes to militants killed in gunfight with government forces at Bijbehara, Anantnag on Friday morning, saying the blood of Kashmiris has been turned cheap and is being spilled ruthlessly.
