Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership has called for a complete shutdown on Sunday against the banning of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front under Unlawful Activities Act.
The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front is led by Yasin Malik who is detained under Public Safety Act at Kot Balwal jail in Jammu. Malik is also part of the Joint Resistance Leadership besides, Hurriyat Conference (G )chairperson Syed Ali Geelani and Hurriyat Conference (M) chairperson Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
The government of India Friday declared the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), led by Muhammad Yasin Malik, an “unlawful association” under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
JRL in a statement appealed people to observe a complete shutdown on Sunday to protest against the ban.
Terming the ban on JKLF as unethical and undemocratic, the JRL said: “The order to ban Jama’at and JKLF is nothing but an act of political vengeance and an oppressive tactic to subdue the just movement of people of Jammu and Kashmir. The government’s decision to ban the organisations peacefully striving for the resolution of conflict, will not cow down the people.” the statement said.
It added that GoI wants to push people to wall for raising the demand to get their rights but it will not make pro freedom leadership to crumble.
