JKLF to hold hunger strike at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

JKLF to hold hunger strike at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

NEW DELHI: JKLF chief Yasin Malik who was released on April 15 from a 35-day house arrest will be holding a 48-hour hunger strike at the Jantar Mantar here from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Malik is here to seek support from the civil society in the rest of the country (outside if Kashmir) for his causes.
"We are here to ensure that our voices are heard by the Centre and also to register as part of the civil society in the rest of the country, which played such an important part in the 1994 cease fire that helped many militant groups to take the peaceful path," Malik told TOI, on Tuesday.
There are three main demands that Malik is here with and they include justice for the 32 people who have recently been sentenced for life imprisonment in Kashmir over 2012 and 2013, for being involved in cases of militancy that date back to before 1994, when the ceasefire was declared and those like Malik's JKLF laid down their arms and moved into non-violent movement even as they continued to be considered separatist activists in the Valley. The second plea that Malik will be making is to ask the Centre to return the body of Parliament attack accused Afzal Guru, who was hanged in Tihar jail and buried there, to his family in Kashmir.
Malik's third reason for the hunger strike protest is in demand for justice for the families of those three people killed in the Machhil sector of north Kashmir by the Army. When it was later found that the three men were killed in fake encounters, by the Army personnel in the border area, the Army men were suspended and charged with murder. While their trials are going on, their families have complained of being harassed by the Army. Some of the harassed family members have traveled to Delhi with Malik and will be protesting with him at Jantar Mantar, to seek reief and justuce from the government and also to seek support of the mainstream civil society in the country, for their cause.
