Srinagar, March 21: ooking JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik under draconian law Public safety act (PSA), shifting him to Kot-Balwal Jail, putting him into solitary confinement and thus endangering his life has raised many questions about the intentions of the Indian government. The international community should denounce and stop violence unleashed by states against peaceful democratic activities. This was stated by various JKLF leaders while talking to UK foreign office, UN human rights officials at Geneva, and protesters outside Indian high commission in London. Earlier JKLF diplomatic head Professor Zaffar Khan led delegation held a meeting with United Kingdom Foreign office in London, another delegation led by zonal president EU Choudhary Tanveer and comprising of Masood Mir, Naseem Iqbal and Mushtaq Devan held a meeting with United Nations Human rights (UNHR) officials in Geneva while as president UK zone Sabir-Gul and led a protest demonstration outside Indian high commission in London against slapping PSA on JKLF chairman and ill-treatment meted out to him and others in jails and interrogation centers and other human rights violation in Jammu Kashmir.
Terming the arrest of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and thousands of other as undemocratic and illegal, JKLF leaders Professor Zaffar Khan, Choudhary Tanveer, Sabir-Gul emphasized upon the need of immediate intervention by the international community to save democratic voices of the people of Jammu Kashmir from Indian aggression, ensure an early and safe release of JKLF chairman and others from jails and stop killing spree in Kashmir. JKLF leaders said that Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has been booked under PSA that is an arbitrary law. Leaders said that booking a peaceful political leader of the stature of Muhammad Yasin Malik under an arbitrary and draconian law and putting him into solitary confinement by the world’s so-called biggest democracy called India can only be termed as a travesty of democracy and human rights. JKLF Leaders said that if suppressing peaceful dissent by jailing Political Leadership is a democracy then what can one call tyranny and dictatorship of Hitler and Mussolini who used the same tactics to suppress people’s voices. Condemning the custodial killing of a school teacher Rizwan Asad Pandith by Indian NIA and SOG, JKLF leaders said that International community should denounce and stop violence unleashed by nation states against peaceful democratic activities of subjugated nations like Kashmir and stop aggression against unarmed civilians. JKLF delegations also appealed the international community, human rights organizations and civil society to intervene and save the life of incarcerated JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and thousands of others languishing in Indian jails and incarceration centers.
