(London, July 11, 2009) Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front - JKLF has demanded the immediate and unconditional release of veteran Kashmiri leader Shabir Ahmed Shah. He has been illegally incarcerated by Indian authorities since August 2008.

In a statement issued from London, head of JKLF diplomatic committee Prof. Zafar Khan has said that sacrifices rendered by Shabir Ahmed Shah are enormous and he has stood firm to his commitments despite all odds. He said that this illegal imprisonment was not new to him and such kind of tactics by Indian government can not demoralize the Kashmiri people.

Zafar Khan said that JKLF fully supports “Shabbir Shah Release Committee” formed in London. He said JKLF will support all the measures adopted by the committee in order to secure the release of Shabbir Shah from Indian prison. Zafar Khan further said that JKLF will attend in large numbers in the demonstration in London against the arrest of Shabbir Ahmed Shah. He called on the Indian government to release all political prisoners in Kashmir including Shabbir Ahmed Shah and start a meaningful dialogue for the resolution of Kashmir issue.

Zafar Khan also condemned the molestation and subsequent killing of a Kashmiri girl in Trehgam. He welcomed the formation of a “Trehgam Resistance Committee” by the local people headed by Senior Vice Chairman of JKLF, Sheikh Mohammed Afzal. He offered full support to the committee in order to bring the culprits of this heinous crime to justice.
