It is worth to mention that JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik is in Srinagar central jail from last Monday along with JKLF leaders Showkat ahmad Bakhshi and basher ahmad Kashmiri while as JKLF leader Siraj ud din Mir is in Kreeri police station while as JKLF district president Baramullah Abdul Rashid Magloo is languishing in sub-jail Baramullah.

Despite this entire police highhandedness and crackdown, JKLF leaders and activists led by Zonal general secretary Sheikh Abdul Rashid managed to reach there and staged a peaceful protest outside the Masjid. JKLF vice chairman Mushtaq Ajmal along with leaders’ professor Javed ,Ashraf bin Salam, Ghulam Muhammad Dar, Mushtaq Ahmad Dar, Fayaz Ahmad, Basharat Ahmad, Imtiyaz Ahmad also participated in the protest program. On the occasion, JRL memorandum was also read before the press.

While condemning the spree of killings, police highhandedness and oppression unleashed against protesting students especially girl students, JKLF incarcerated chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that so-called rulers and their police have actually crossed every limit of highhandedness and shame and are hell bent to trample every voice of dissent by military might. JKLF said that Shupian massacre and pellet terrorism which killed many more and injured hundreds is being followed by suppression and state sponsored terrorism. The way police laid a siege around every Masjid, every nook and corner of Lal Chowk and other parts of Srinagar and rest of the valley today, speaks volumes about the colonial and chauvinist mindset of India and its Kashmiri stooges working in the form of PDP and other pro-India politicians and assembly members. JKLF chairman while condemning the Shupian massacre, pellet and bullet terrorism unleashed by India trigger happy forces which has killed many and wounded scores of people across the valley, said that Kashmiri resilience and steadfastness has shaken the oppressors and whatever is being done by police today is a glaring evidence of the frustration so-called rulers and their forces are suffering from. Yasin sahib also strongly condemned the police oppression unleashed against students across valley yesterday and said that peaceful protest against genocide id birth right of every human but Kashmir has been turned into a police state where law of jungle is prevailing and in practice, which is highly condemnable.
