Appeals for ensuring safety of minorities in valley
Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik Friday said that attacks on Kashmiris across India is a dangerous trend which is promoting hatred between humans.
“Roads and institutions across India have been turned into a war zones for Kashmiris. Attacks by goons on Kashmiri businessmen, students, tourists are most condemnable and outrageous. This situation will only promote violence and hatred and may push more people to armed path,” Yasin Malik stated this while speaking to people at Masjid Jamia Abi Guzar here, according to the statement.
Terming these attacks as most horrible, JKLF chairman said that “videos and images of these attacks and acts of humiliations are like forcing more Kashmiri youth towards armed resistance and hence turn situation more vulnerable and unwanted”.
“…I want to tell biased Indian TV channels, debaters, politicians and policymakers that it is you who leave no place for these youth to tread a peaceful political path and then start demonising and killing them shamelessly which is highly condemnable,” JKLF chairman said.
The resistance leader further said: “Today we are witnessing pro-India Kashmiri politicians and some other people rushing to Jammu and Delhi, have photographs with rescued Kashmiri children and play politics on this human issue.”
Hailing Sikh community for providing safety to stranded, JKLF chairman said that role of Sikh organizations and individuals including “Khalsa aid” are actually like a ray of hope for humanity in these dark times for which they deserve kudos.
Asking Kashmiris to remain steadfast, Malik said that our religion Islam, Prophet of Islam (SAW) and religious cum social traditions have taught us to serve humanity, shun hatred and religious divide, and despite all provocations safeguard our minorities, their lives, dignity and properties even at the cost of their lives.
“We have throughout history always safeguarded religious harmony and protected all outsiders living or working here and we will insha-Allah stand firm and provide safety, relief and other assistance to every outsider present on our land in future too and uphold our tradition in ensuring the safety of every human being,” he added.
