SRINAGAR Attacks on Kashmiri businessmen, students, tourists will only promote violence and hatred and may push more youth on the armed path, chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik said Friday while addressing a gathering at Masjid Jamia Abi Guzar on Friday.
Terming these attacks as most horrible, JKLF chairman said that videos and images of these attacks and acts of humiliations is like forcing more Kashmiri youth towards armed resistance and hence turn the situation more vulnerable and unwanted.
First Indian authorities clamp down on Kashmiri youth, arrest them, torture, torment, and humiliate them, hence push them to the wall and leave no space for them but to tread the armed path and then we witness noisy debates on why Kashmiri youth are picking guns and that kill all Kashmiris as they are militant and so on, he said.
I want to tell these biased Indian TV channels, debaters, politicians and policy makers that it is you who leave no place for these youth to tread a peaceful political path and then start demonizing and killing them shamelessly which is highly condemnable, Malik said.
He also slammed pro-India Kashmiri politicians and some other people for rushing to Jammu and Delhi to get photographs clicked with rescued Kashmiri children and play politics on this human issue.
I want to ask these selfish people that if they have such love lost for Kashmiri children and students then why they blocked the setting up of Transworld Muslim University proposed by martyr Moulana Showkat Ahmad Shah. Why dont they provide lands and permissions for setting up colleges and other institutions in Kashmir to evade and stop brain draining, money draining from Kashmir and also ruining of the careers of our new generation by Indian aggression.
