SRINAGAR Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik while paying tributes to Muhammad Afzal Guru has said that gallows, life imprisonments, curfews, arrests, intimidations and threats will never succeed in breaking the will of Kashmiris and their urge for freedom.
Terming the death of Afzal Guru on gallows as glaring example of Indian prejudice against Kashmiris, Malik who is in police custody from 6th February 2019, as per a press statement said that Afzal was hanged by Indian judicial system on pretext of “satisfying the collective consciousness of (Indian) nation” which itself, speaks volumes about the ‘sham judgment’.
Likewise great Kashmiri ideologue Muhammad Maqbool Butt was also hanged without being given a fair trial by Indian state, said Malik, adding that Indian state not only hanged Maqbool and Afzal in Tihar jail but also denied them a proper burial by burying then inside the jail premises.
The height of shamelessness of this biggest democracy is that it even disallowed these martyrs one last chance of meeting their loved ones, Malik added.
