JKLF in United Kingdom condemned the hanging of Afzal Guru
JKLF leaders in London have condemned the Indian government decision to hang an innocent man, Afzal Guru, this morning over the parliamentary attack case and called it a 'mockery of justice', and said that Afzal Guru was framed by Indian security services people and denied due legal process because they needed a scapegoat.
"The hanging of Afzal Guru is a clear indication to Kashmiri masses that Indian government is not interested in resolving the
Kashmir issue and wants to bury the independence movement by imprisoning and
hanging all Kashmiri youth who were involved in the pre-1990s
In a statement issued from London, JKLF president Azmat Khan, has said that we never had any doubts that Afzal Guru was innocent and he had no part in the 2001 attack on Indian parliament except that he was set up by IB and task force personnel to meet with one of the alleged attackers so that the Kashmiri movement could be defamed as a 'terrorist movement' and another Kashmiri could be hanged as a result.
JKLF president has said that
learnt nothing form the hanging of Maqbool Butt in
1984, on 11th February. Every Kashmiri household produced a new Maqbool Butt to
fight against Indian rule and they have now given a new martyr to our
independence movement and our people will not forget this injustice for many
years to come. We will not let Afzal Guru's blood waste in vein. India
