SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Friday said New Delhi’s policy of “coercion” will fail to suppress the pro-freedom voices of Kashmir.
“Employ whatever force you have at your disposal against Kashmiris but bear in mind that all your coercion will fail to suppress Kashmiri voices for freedom,” Malik, who is detained at police station Kothi Bagh here, said in a statement.
“If killings, gallows, guns, tanks, chemical weapons, jails, drones and other modes of carnage would have proved successful in suppressing people’s freedom movements, a number of nations including India would not have been able to get freedom from foreign occupation,” he said.
JKLF chairman also paid tributes to those killed recently saying the blood of Kashmiris is being spilled ruthlessly and with impunity, which is highly condemnable.
He strongly condemned the arrest of JKLF vice chairman Sheikh Muhammad Afzal at Trehgam Kupwara on Friday, and “police raids” on party’s senior member Syed Muzaffar in Dooru, Anantnag, terming it bullying of peaceful political activists and leaders.
Meanwhile, a JKLF statement said scores of party leaders and activists staged separate protests at Sarai Bala and Maisuma Srinagar against “ongoing Indian aggression”.
