Srinagar: J&K Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik on Friday said that Indian armys direct threat to people of Jammu and Kashmir is a glaring example of that the state is being run according to the whims and whips of army and police.
India has been using brutal force to keep its occupation on Kashmir intact but despite all oppressive measures and massacres Kashmiris have and will never budge before the forces of darkness and occupation. British secretary of foreign affairs should go through history first before issuing statements on Jammu Kashmir. It is the British who left south Asian peace and prosperity in jeopardy by keeping Kashmir issue unresolved, he said in a statement issued here.
Terming the statement of Indian army in which it has said that action will be taken against those civilians who protest against armys oppression, as a direct threat and intimidation to the people of Jammu Kashmir, Yasin Malik said that Indian armys interference in domestic issues and religious affairs of people is not acceptable at all.
Malik said that people of Jammu Kashmir have been tolerating Indian armys wrath and oppression from last many decades. Indian army and forces have killed more than one Lakh Kashmiris. Thousands stand disappeared in their custody. Thousands of unmarked graves are a sign of their oppressive behavior and there are hundreds of thousands who have witnessed their torture and incarceration, he said.
He said that Indian army on one side is arranging programs of so-called Sadbhavana to befool people and on the other hand is threatening people of dire consequences for using their democratic right to protest.
Showing concern over the deteriorating health of veteran resistance leader Syed Ai Shah Geelani, Yasin Malik prayed for his early recovery
