JKLF reiterates Lal Chowk March

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Saturday said that the party Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and its activists will lead a protest march towards city centre Lal Chowk on Sunday as announced by the party earlier.

In a press statement, Malik said that the sacrifice of Mohammad Afzal Guru was an indelible chapter of our history.

“Shaheed Afzal followed father of Kashmiri nation Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and kissed gallows without budging before the tyrants. Nation of Kashmir owes debt to him for his resolve and determination,” he said.

He said that despite police crackdown on JKLF leaders and activists across the valley, the party as per the announcement will march towards Lal Chowk.

“Martyr Muhammad Maqbool Bhat was an ideologue and leader while martyr son of Kashmir Muhammad Afzal Guru proved to be his successor who kissed gallows like Maqbool sahib.” Malik said adding “The sacrifices of Muhammad Afzal Guru, the oppressive measures, and persecution he and his family faced at the hands of modern day Hitler’s is part of our resistance history. Same tyranny and repression was faced by Maqbool Bhat and his family 30 years ago and that too at the hands of same Tyrants.” He said that Indian rulers who have done this “injustice to Kashmiris” will have to answer for their crimes because that is the law of nature.

Malik said that Indian state by hanging Guru showed their hatred against Kashmiris and the limit of their oppression “is such that they after hanging our beloved leaders denied them a proper burial and their families a chance to meet them before being hanged.”

“People of Jammu Kashmir will not forget the sacrifices of martyrs neither will we ever forget the tyrant and oppressive measures of India. We will keep protesting against this oppression and we will keep demanding the mortal remains of our beloved martyrs Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Muhammad Afzal Guru.”
