Party pays tributes to Hyder Ali, others
SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday was taken to hospital for necessary medical check-up. JKLF chairman who is imprisoned at police station Maisuma from last many days has grown too weak during recent imprisonment and has developed severe back pain. “Confinement to a small room has actually aggravated his already fragile health,” a KJLF spokesperson in a statement issued here read.
Malik, a heart patient has to take ‘blood thinner’ medicine on daily basis and go through regular heart check-up. A team of doctors including his personal physician, Dr Upender Koul saw him at the hospital, and took his blood samples, USG, INR, ECHO and other necessary tests. “His USG is showing multiple stones in both of his kidneys while as his INR is also abnormal and because of that Dr Koul has suggested him to stop taking some necessary medicine for some days,” he said. Doctors are of the opinion that lack of movement and regular confinements are responsible for his back pain.
Expressing serious concern over Malik’s deteriorating health, the spokesman said “JKLF chairman has become a prized pastime of so-called rulers and occupational authorities” and that these confinements and arrests have taken a heavy toll on his health “which is worsening rapidly”.
Meanwhile, JKLF has paid rich tributes to its “martyrs” Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Mir alias Hyder Ali, Ghulam Ahmad Mir alias Jamal-ud-Din and Abdul Hamid Azad on their anniversary on Saturday. “The struggle and sacrifices of these great Kashmiris are our precious treasure and will always be remembered by this nation,” JKLF said.
The spokesperson also said that police raided the JKLF office at Abi-Guzar here on Saturday and arrested zonal organiser, Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri who has been shifted to police station Kothi-bagh.
“JKLF strongly condemns this unfair arrest of its zonal organiser,” he added.
