SRINAGAR Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Tuesday visited SKIMS Soura where he enquired about the health condition of an injured youth Abdul Majeed Waar from Soura who was hit in the head on Eid.
Malik met with his family and doctors attending him and enquired about his health condition, a JKLF spokesperson said in a statement issued.
JKLF chairman on the occasion said that from the last day of holy month of Ramadhan, oppression in the entire valley has risen to new heights.
The nocturnal raids, arbitrary arrests, harassment and humiliation of innocent people and torturing households have also risen to an alarming height and arrest of dozens of innocents at Pulwama, Shupian, Kulgam, Islamabad (Anantnag) and other places is a glaring example of this growing oppression by India and which is highly condemnable, Malik said.
The spokesperson said that a delegation from Shopian on Tuesday visited JKLF office here and informed Malik about the oppression unleashed by forces in various villages.
The delegation provided information about various young boys who have been arrested and tortured by forces in recent days. The delegation said that recently Army and SOG raided the residence of a journalist Syed Tajamul Imran at Nazneenpora Shopian during night, searched the residence from 11:30 pm to 2:00 am, caught hold of Syed Tajamul and his younger brother Syed Ruban and tortured them ruthlessly in front of their parents, the spokesperson said.
Forces even took photographs of little Syed Ruban after placing Rifles on him which actually has worried the family a lot. It was only after torturing and humiliating the whole family that forces left the village, he said.
Strongly condemning this brutality of Army and SOG, JKLF chairman said this atrocious attitude has pushed thousands of young Kashmiris to the wall resulting in violence and destruction.
Expressing solidarity with the delegation, Malik said that tyranny and suppression will surely end and it is the oppressed people that will have the last laugh InshaAllah.
Meanwhile, the funeral prayers in absentia were held at Lal Chowk (Gaw Kadal) for the slain youth Vikas Ahmad, Zeeshan Ahmad and Ajaz Ahmad.
