Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has expressed serious concerns about the safety of the party Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, and leader, Noor Muhammad Kalwal.

The authorities have shifted the two leaders to some undisclosed location.

They were recently moved to a Joint Interrogation Centre (JIC) Humhama from Srinagar Central Jail.

The JKLF Vice Chairman, Advocate Bashir Ahmed Butt, in a statement in Srinagar strongly condemned the frequent shifting of Muhammad Yasin Malik from one jail to another.

“Recently Muhammad Yasin Malik and Noor Muhammad Kalwal were shifted from Srinagar Central Jail to JIC Humhama, but after keeping them there for only two days, they have yet again been shifted to some unknown jail now.

Torturing leaders by shifting around actually amounts to uncivilized and inhuman approach of the so-called rulers, who want to break the will and resolve of people by these immoral tactics,” Advocate Bashir Ahmed Butt said.

He also denounced the killing of Danish Manzoor Lone of Rafiabad, Baramulla, and said, “Killing Kashmiris in cold blood is continuing, so is the callousness of the so-called rulers who instead of putting an end to these killings and pellet terrorism are fabricating stories after stories to provide a legal shield to killers.”

He said that on one side, killings were going on and on the other, nocturnal raids, arrests, slapping of the draconian Public Safety Act on innocents and torturing of resistance leadership were continuing.

He condemned the arrest of senior Hurriyet leader, Dr Ghulam Muhammad Hubbi, and invoking of PSA against him.

The JKLF Vice Chairman also condemned the vandalizing of thousands of houses, buses, cars and other vehicles by Indian forces across the territory.

“Recently the residential house of a senior journalist Danish Ahmad at Batamaloo in Srinagar was stoned by police and paramilitary personnel and his ailing family was terrorized,” he deplored.

Meanwhile, the JKLF statement said that a peaceful public programme was held in Safakdal area of Srinagar under the banner of joint resistance leadership in which besides others JKLF leaders and activists including Bashir Ahmed Kashmiri also participated.
