As NIA summons JKLF leader, Malik asks the agency to stop demonising pro-freedom leaders


After the National Investigating Agency (NIA) summoned Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front’s zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, the Front chairman Yasin Malik has asked the agency to stop demonising the family members and political colleagues of pro-freedom leaders, and the businessmen of Kashmir.

Malik has also asked the NIA to summon him to New Delhi to “know the truth”.

Kalwal has been asked by the investigating agency to present himself at its New Delhi office on August 28, Monday.

“NIA should summon me and issue it in my name if they are serious about knowing the truth,” Malik told a newspaper.

“Delhi and its agencies want to slander the resistance leadership under the garb of terror funding. Instead of directly questioning the top leaders, the NIA started terrorising their kith and kin, friends and families,” he said.

Malik asked Delhi that if the NIA was sure about charges levelled against the leaders, then it should refrain from ‘targeting’ the family members and friends of the leadership.

On the summons issued by NIA to JKLF leader Kalwal, the Front chairman said that summons are actually a ploy to intimidate the pro-freedom leaders.

“Kalwal is a known political leader whose social and political life is an open book,” he said. “He is living a modest life and is known for his integrity, simplicity, selflessness and commitment towards peaceful means of resistance.”
