SRINAGAR: JKLF Chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik today said the killers of innocent Kashmiris cannot evade punishment and will have to face justice.
Kashmiri dont care what Mr. Antony or anybody else thinks. We will not let our protest rest till the killers of Pathribal are brought to justice, Malik said reacting to Defense Minister A K Antonys reported remarks that he was against reopening the case against five Indian army officers who have been charged of killing six innocent Kashmiris in cold blood at Pathribal in year 2000.
Deliberating on the issue Malik said that the Indian armys decision of giving clean chit to its killer officers of Pathribal massacre and now reports of defense minister being against reopening the case is all part of Indian oppressive attitude towards the people of Jammu Kashmir.
Malik said that after armys clean chit to killers of Pathribal, pro- India politicians and rulers of Jammu Kashmir pretended to be opposed to the army decision and started theatrics. These politicians did same in the case of Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru, 2008 and 2010 innocent killings and other massacres. This all is done under a well planned program to diffuse the tension and after the situation gets normal we always hear statements like that of Mr. Antony etc.
