JKLF Chairman Yasin Malik's house arrest by Indian authorities during Eid-ul-Fitre strongly condemned


(London- 20 August:) Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has strongly condemned the house arrest of JKLF Chairman Mr Yasin Malik in Srinagar by Indian occupation authorities during the end of Ramadan Eid-ul-Ftre festival. He was put under house arrest on 19th August and continues to be detained at his residence in the Maisoma neighbourhood of Srinagar.

By putting the JKLF Chairman under house arrest Indian authorities have prevented him from offering Eid prayers and   direct contact with the people at the
TRC ground in Srinagar where he delivers an address to the congregation on each Eid occasion.

In a press note released  here today, Professor Zafar Khan, who speaks on the diplomatic affairs of the JKLF, Professor Azmat Khan, president of JKLF's UK chapter, Syed Tehsin Gilani, its General secretary and  Councillor Mahmood Hussain its  senior Vice President have  strongly condemned Mr Malik's house arrest; and  have termed it a cowardly deed by the Indian authorities.
These leaders have accused the authorities of interfering in religious affairs by preventing Mr Malik to offer the obligatory Eid prayers, and have called Mr Malik's house arrest as an infringement of his democratic and political rights to engage in peaceful political activity.

The JKLF leaders  further stated that if the Indian authorities continue to prevent the JKLF chairman from  meeting the masses in all parts of the Indian held Jammu Kashmir, the organisation will take this  issue before international human rights fora as well  as other authorities to expose the under hand undemocratic  methods of Indian state machinery in Kashmir.
