Srinagar,13th July: stopping joint march of resistance camp towards Mazar I Shuhada and arresting leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar farooq have exposed the real face of so-called rulers . If world cannot show any sympathy towards mourning Kashmiris whose 40 people have fallen to Indian bullets, it should refrain from adding salt to our wounds.
This was stated by the incarcerated chairman of Jammu Kashmir liberation front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik who is in police custody from last six days and is lodged at police station Kothibagh in his message sent from incarceration today. Meanwhile despite heavy restriction and strict curfew, JKLF activists led by Zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal toady gathered at Habakadal and tried to march towards Mazar I Shuhada according to the joint resistance program but as all roads leading towards Martyrs Graveyad had been sealed by razor wire and other barricades ,the participants staged a strong protest .JKLF zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri along with activists Arshid Ahmad Butt and Shahid Makaya etc were also present in the protest program.
In his message from incarceration JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik while condemning arrests, curfew, restrictions, barricades and other oppressive measures meant to stop joint resistance march towards Martyrs graveyard, said that by these measures so-called rulers have actually shown their class and real anti-democratic and anti-people face. He said that on one hand rulers are busy killing and injuring innocent Kashmiris and on the other hand oppressive measures to suppress peoples voices are also going on unabated .while condemning the arrest of leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq, jailed JKLF chairman said that these arrests cannot deter us from perusing the path of freedom and protesting the oppressive behavior of India and its Kashmiri stooges.
While condemning the criminal silence of the international community, Civil society, Indian civil society on innocent killings in Kashmir , JKLF jailed chairman said that instead of condemning the innocent killings of Kashmiris and brutal use of force by Indian forces against them, international community especially USA is either silent or issuing ridiculous statements .if international community is not able to feel pain of Kashmiris whose 40 people have so-far fallen to the bullets of Indians and whose more than 1500 hundred are seriously injured many of which have lost their eyesight, and have no words of sympathy for us, they should not add salt to our wounds by issuing inhuman statements.
While paying rich tributes to martyrs of 1931, Yasin Malik said that the flame of sacrifices lit by these martyrs is still burning and from last six days Kashmiris have sacrifices another forty of their loved ones for freedom and truth. The struggle started in 1931 still continues and will continue till the achievement of complete freedom, asserted Yasin Malik. While paying homage to volunteers, common people, doctors and paramedics who have relentlessly worked for the welfare of victims of Indian violence especially for those injured, Yasin Malik said that the way Kashmiris are showing brotherhood, fellow feeling and philanthropy during these hard times is really heartening and deserves appreciation.
