The protest rally was addressed by various JKLF leaders who while condemning the arrest and house arrest of JRL leadership and barring them from going to Delhi and expose NIA drama, said that by incarcerating Leaders and banning them from traveling to Delhi, so-called rulers and their authorities have actually demonstrated their growing frustration. Speakers said that JRL leadership intended to go to Delhi and expose the ongoing NIA drama but so-called rulers who before few hours where boasting about allowing them, changed their mind and adopted their old policy of arrests, curfews and restrictions to suppress people’s voices.
While condemning the incarceration of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and placing Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq under house arrest, JKLF speakers said that this police highhandedness has actually vindicated the fact that people of Jammu Kashmir want freedom and right to self-determination and NIA drama has and can never break their will and resolve for fighting tyranny, oppression and illegal occupation.
