squeezing political space in Jammu Kashmir so-called rulers actually promoting violence//Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi( vice chairman JKLF)
Srinagar, June 02: so called rulers have started a vicious campaign against Muslims of Jammu Kashmir and recent developments about Jammu Muslims stand as a glaring example of PDP implementing RSS agenda on Kashmir. By squeezing political space in Jammu Kashmir so-called rulers are actually promoting violence .this was stated by the vice chairman JKLF Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi before courting arrest along with many other JKLF activists including JKLF district president Budgam Gulzar Ahmad Butt Pahalwan, Muhammad Ramzaan Sofi, Nazir Ahmad Hajam, Abdul Rashid Ganaie,Bashir Ahmad Mir,Abdul Rehman Dar,Ali Muhammad Mir,Farooq Ahmad Baigh,Bilal Ahmad Dar, Ishfaq Ahmad Unto, Mohammad Yasin khan today. Prior to these arrests JKLF leaders, activists along with a large number of people gathered outside the shrine at Sara I Bala Srinagar and led by Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi marched towards Amira Kadal bridge. Chanting slogans in favor of Azadi, martyrs, resistance and against RSS agenda on Jammu Kashmir, choking of political space the participants of this procession reached Amira Kadal Bridge where JKLF leaders and activists courted arrest. This is worth to mention that today was the fourth phase of jail Bharo program and dozens of people arrested so far have been shifted to central jail Srinagar. Only JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has been lodged at Kothibagh police station so far .before courting his arrest JKLF vice chairman Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi while talking to media and people present on the occasion said that PDP led government in Jammu Kashmir is slowly and steadily following the RSS agenda on Jammu Kashmir. Muslims in Jammu have been started to penalize for being Muslims and Kashmiris and in Kashmir this so called government has choked all the space for peaceful political activities. Showkat Bakhshi said that actually these things are glaring example of the fact that these pro-India politicians and their parties can go down to any extent for their lust of power and authority. He said that by these undemocratic, unethical, communal and criminal acts rulers are actually pushing people of Jammu Kashmir to the wall and hence promoting violence. Bakshi sahib said that the tall claims of Pro India politicians and parties operating in Jammu Kashmir of being democratic are actually farce as these people have no guts to compete resistance camp especially JKLF on political front and they feel safe only by choking political space of resistance camp and hence suppress the voices of decent through power. He said that JKLF has started this jail Bharo campaign as a protest against the puppet government’s policy of choking political space and other oppressive measures against JKLF and other resistance parties. He said people of Kashmir have always been betrayed by puppets of India and today by banning peaceful political activities these puppets have crossed every limit of decency and anti democracy. He said that JKLF has pledged to take the sacred movement of martyrs to its logical end and we will never allow any body to change the demography and special status of Jammu Kashmir. He said that people who advocated “Battle of ideas” and “Goli Nahin Boli” after getting power have resorted to worst kind of oppression and suppression but they should know that their double speak and hypocritical politics has been exposed among common masses now.
