Srinagar, 09 Feb: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik while paying glowing tributes to Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guroo has said that gallows, life imprisonments, curfews, arrests, intimidations and threats will never succeed in breaking the will of Kashmiris and their urge for freedom.
Terming the martyrdom of Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru on gallows as glaring example of Indian prejudice against Kashmiris, JKLF chairman who is in police custody from 6th February 2019,said that Afzal was hanged by Indian judicial system on pretext of satisfying the so-called collective consciousness of Indians which itself, speaks volumes about the sham judgment.
Like wise great Kashmiri ideologue martyr Muhammad Maqbool Butt was also hanged without being given a fair trial by Indian state, said Yasin Malik. JKLF chairman said that Indian state not only illegally hanged martyrs Maqbool and Afzal in Tihar jail but also denied them a proper burial by burying then inside the jail premises. The height of shamelessness of this so-called biggest democracy is that it even disallowed these martyrs one last chance of meeting their loved ones, added Yasin Malik.
He said that hangings, arrests, life imprisonments, harassments, police and army intimidations and other oppressive measures cannot suppress the voices of Kashmiris for long and the day is not far when dawn of freedom will rise on the horizons of Jammu Kashmir. Kashmiris will continue their struggle till the desired goal is not achieved and till India returns the mortal remains of Shaheed Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guroo, asserted Yasin Malik.
