Jammu Kashmir is police state where killing innocent humans is normal: Malik

JKLF stages protest against civilian killing at Srigufwara


Srinagar, Jun 22 (KNS): Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik today condemned the killings of many more Kashmiris at Srigufwara Islamabad.
“Jammu Kashmir is a police state where killing innocent humans are normal. No matter who runs the state affairs in Jammu Kashmir, he or she is deployed to serve Indian interests and target Kashmiri lives,” Malik said in a statement issued to KNS.
Malik while terming this ongoing spree of Killings as well-strategized policy of Indian state said that Jammu Kashmir is a police state where killing humans is a normal affair and no matter who runs the state affairs, he or she is deployed only to Kill, maim and target Kashmiris.
He said that recently a drama has been state managed and governors’ rule implemented in Kashmir.
“This is also a well-devised plan to increase in killings, inflict more and more harm and injury to Kashmiris and intimidate them,” added JKLF chairman.
He said that crackdowns have become a daily routine and during these military operations, beating common people without the discrimination of age and gender, arresting, torturing and humiliating innocents, vandalizing and destroying properties, blasting and burning down residential houses and private vehicles has increased to an alarming proportion.
Malik said that “on one hand this oppression and state sponsored terrorism against common people is going on and on the other hand Indian media especially TV channels have been deployed as propaganda machine to justify this state sponsored terrorism.”
He said that Indian TV channels and anchors are working as foot soldiers in civvies for Indian Army, forces, SOG, police and agencies and are deployed for promoting killings and other oppressive measures.
JKLF chairman said that today one more civilian has been killed by ‘trigger happy Indians’ and more than two dozen stand injured including a women. “Besides this, many more Kashmiri youth have been martyred which include Davood Salafi, Majid Manzoor, Muhammad Ashraf Itoo, and Adil Hassan and also many residential houses too have been damaged. This is naked fascism and terrorism which is going on in Kashmir under the garb of biggest democracy,” he said.
Meanwhile, Malik paid tributes to Ajaz Ahmad Bazaz (Yasir) of Basant Bagh who was martyred in custody by SOG in year 2000.
Malik expressed solidarity with his family.
JKLF today organized a condolence program at party headquarters for great martyr. Various JKLF leaders and activists along with the father of the great martyr participated in the program and paid tributes him.
