SrinagarJammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday led a protest rally in Soura area of Srinagar to demand release of detainees languishing in various jails.
Suppressing peoples voices by killings and incarcerating people can be only termed as worst dictatorship. Only oppressive authoritarian regimes keep people in jails and incarcerations centers.
Persecution of Burmese Muslims and inaction of the international community on it is regrettable,” Malik told the gathering.
JKLF chairman said that Islam teaches unity and oneness and if “we are able to safeguard our unity and remain steadfast in our struggle, no power on earth can ever defeat us.”
Terming Kashmiris “languishing in jails and police stations as prisoners of conscience,” Malik said that so-called biggest democracy and its allies in Jammu Kashmir have incarcerated thousands of young and old, men and women in the name of peace and law and order.
Black Laws like PSA and investigating agencies like NIA are being used to jail and intimidate people. He said that from Tihar jail Delhi to jails in Jammu Kashmir, thousands are being terrorized and tortured that too in the name of democracy,” he said.
Malik also condemned the ongoing massacre of Muslims in Rakhine state of Myanmar, saying that “humans are being killed, raped, looted and persecuted with impunity and state of Myanmar is engaged in ethnic cleansing of an entire nation.”
International community till now has stood as a mere spectator on this mass killing and exodus of humans and this persecution and inaction of the international community on it is regrettable and most condemnable,” he added.
