Srinagar, June 03: Kashmiris are a living nation and suppressing their voices by military might is not possible for any one. Indian rulers and their puppets in Jammu Kashmir should know that by suppressing voices of decent and choking political space on resistance camp especially JKLF is worst kind of anti democracy. JKLF has decided to fight against this oppression and our jail Bharo campaign is part of this resistance. This was stated by the senior leader of JKLF Sheikh Khalid Mubarak who led today’s group of JKLF activists who courted arrest. Those who courted arrest along with sheikh Khalid Mubarak included district presidents Javed Ahmad Butt, and Syed Nisar Jeelani, Mohammad Ayub Naikoo ,Manzoor Ahmad Sheikh, Showkat Ahmad Lone, Abdul Qayoom Ganai, Abdul Ahad Khan, Shabir Ahmad Nengroo, Khizar Mohammad Wani, Ghulam Hassan Mir, Ghulam Hassan Paul, and Gulam Mohammad Dar prior to the arrests JKLF leaders, activists and people from every walk of life in large numbers gathered outside the Court Road Masjid and marched towards Lal chowk.

He said that Indian rulers and their puppets in Jammu Kashmir should know that by suppressing voices of decent and choking political space on resistance camp especially JKLF is worst kind of anti democracy. He said that JKLF has decided to fight against this oppression and our jail Bharo campaign is part of this resistance. Skeikh Khalid said that 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 that puppet state government has chocked all the political space of people here and its tactics are unacceptable. 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.
Sheikh Khalid said that seeking political space is our political, moral and democratic right as we cannot remain silent spectators over growing oppression against people of Jammu Kashmir. He said that JKLF stands for the complete freedom and we pledge to take goal of our great martyrs to its logical and desired end. Vice Chairman Advocate Bashir Ahmad Bhat also addressed the ccasion.
It is worth to mention that dozens of JKLF leaders and activist arrested so far have been shifted to central jail Srinagar while as JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik still remains detained at police station Kothibagh.
