SRINAGAR—Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik was on Monday produced before a TADA Court in Srinagar and remanded to custody till June 11.
Malik has been booked under a 29-year-old case in which Abdul Gani Lone, Qazi Nisaar, Ghulam Muhammad Shah, Syed Ali Geelani and many others were also among the accused.
A JKLF spokesman said Malik himself presented the entire situation before the court.” Malik said in the court why a “murderous attack was carried out by police on him, his family and his locality and why police and SOG raided his residence during night, tortured his old mother, ailing sister and other elders of Maisuma,” the spokesman said.
The JKLF spokesman said Malik told the court that “this hooliganism by police was only to scare him and his family and locals of Maisuma.”
“The court heard the arguments said. Meanwhile, the JKLF spokesman said addressing people in court premises, Malik means is not possible and let so-called rulers do every tyranny (sic) and oppression.”
“We will not deviate from our just cause nor budge before the tyrannical acts of the so-called rulers,” he said, adding: “Every Kashmiri wants return of their Pandit brethren but construction of Israeli-type settlements in their name, establishing Sainik colonies, implementation of East India-type Industrial policy and oppression on Jammu Muslims are such issues on which no Kashmiri can remain silent.”
“These issues are threatening our very existence and identity and thus we cannot let these RSS conspiratorial plots being implemented by present rulers to succeed. I reiterate that unity among various sections of Kashmiri society, especially on these important issues, is inevitable and for forging this unity I am ready to remain in jail for many years,” he said.—GK
