Srinagar: Incarcerated JKLF chairman Yasin Malik today said that the ongoing peaceful people’s revolution is a referendum through which people of Jammu and Kashmir from high mountains of Poonch to Gool Gulab Garh and Ramban, Doda, Kishtwar, Baderwah to Kargil, Uri and Teetwal are raising their voice for a free Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, he said that peaceful struggle against illegal occupation is the birth right of every nation and Kashmiris are too resisting illegal occupation and rendering sacrifices for their freedom.
He said that denying truth and reality and living in self-deceit has been a long ploy of Indian leaders and today when overwhelming majority of Kashmiris are demanding freedom from India, Indian leaders and their Kashmiri stooges remain wedded to their self-deceit policy and continue to be in state of denial.
Malik said that after killing more than 55 innocents and injuring more than 6000 Kashmiris among whom many have been paralyzed for life, instead of recognizing the gravity of the situation trying to take positive steps for addressing Kashmir issue, Kashmiris are being frightened that army will be brought in to suppress their protest.
“How does this matter for a nation that has been facing the wrath of army and other forces from 1947 and who have sacrificed more than one hundred thousand people from 1988 for their freedom, asked Yasin Malik.
