Srinagar: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik has been arrested by police this afternoon, a spokesman said.
After attending a seminar on Shaheed-I-Millat Mirwaiz Muhammad Farooq and Shaheed-I-Hurriyat Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone and a joint meeting, Yasin sahib reached JKLF office this afternoon and soon after his arrival police cordoned the office and arrested him. Immediately after his arrest, he was shifted to police station Kothibagh, the spokesman said.
Prior to arrest, JKLF chairman talked to media person outside JKLF office and said that today is the first day of holy Ramadhan and he is being arrested on this very day, the spokesman said.
This is the reality of Indian democracy in Jammu Kashmir which has choked every little space of peaceful political activities in Kashmir, the spokesman said.
He said that a blanket ban he has been imposed on peaceful political activities and the height of shamelessness is such that funerals and mourning’s has also been banned.
Every now and then out youth are been mercilessly killed, maimed, blinded, arrested, tortured and humiliated by ‘Indian occupational forces”, the JKLF spokesman said.
All this fascism is being done in the name of democracy, peace and law and order which actually makes this act uglier, said Yasin Malik.
