SRINAGAR: Rejecting the J&K Government probe into civilian killings of Handwara, JKLF chief Muhammad Yasin Malik Thursday lashed out at unionist political parties for being more loyal than the king.
Our martyrs are neither sacrificial animals nor sheep and goats of a butchers shop and no one can put them on sale, he said in a statement issued this evening.
These so-called rulers are licking feet of their masters in Delhi that too at a time when our young boys are falling prey to their blood thirsty forces and police have crossed every limit of shamelessness, he added.
Malik is in police custody along with JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Hurriyat JK leader Shabir Ahmad Dar, JKLF zonal organizer Bashir Kashmiri is at police station Kothibagh while as JKLF leader Zahoor Ahmad Butt along with district president Kupwara, Rafiq Ahmad War, are lodged at police station Kralpora.
While terming these probes only to deceive people and defuse their anger and hoodwink international opinion, Malik said, the history of these probes speaks volumes about their validity and genuineness.
Paying rich tributes to Handwaraslain persons including Raja Begum, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Naeem Qadir Butt and Jehangeer Ahmad Wani, Malik said, these martyrs raised their voice against tyranny and oppression and tolerated bullets on their chests and this nation is indebted to these great souls. Yasin Malik also expressed solidarity with their bereaved families.
