Yasin Malik Released From Jail


SRINAGAR — The Police on Wednesday released the ailing chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Mu­hammad Yasin Malik. A JKLF spokesperson in a statement said during his recent impris­onment, Yasin Malik developed pain in his back and was hospi­talized twice.

“His medical examinations have revealed problems in his valve gradient and mul­tiple stones in both of his kidneys. Despite illness, he was kept in the police station, which is a glaring proof of the authorities callousness,” he said. Meanwhile police ar­rested JKLF Zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and lodged him at police station Kralkhud. “He was denied a meeting with his wife, chil­dren and other family mem­bers,” the spokesperson said.

Condemning the arrest of JKLF leaders, Yasin Malik in a statement said that “a blan­ket ban on peaceful political activities by police is most dictatorial”. JKLF chairman ex­pressed his heartfelt grief over the demise of the mother of jailed resistance leader Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bitta Karatay who is languishing at Tihar jail Delhi from more than one year now. JKLF vice chairman Mushtaq Ajmal along with a delegation went to Chota Ba­zar and participated in the fu­neral prayers of the deceased and delivered a condolence message from Yasin Malik.

JKLF chief also paid rich trib­utes to the deceased and said, “She and her whole family have rendered valuable sacri­fices for the freedom of Jammu Kashmir.”
