JKLF chairman in a statement said that JRL recently had announced a peaceful candlelight protest program regarding human rights violations.
“The exemplary programs were conducted in such a peaceful manner that even a leaf was not disturbed during these programs.

JKLF chairman in a statement said: “All this tyranny and oppression is being done by police authorities’ in the name of peace and law and order but actually police through these illegal and authoritarian actions is promoting violence and anarchy and trying to implement a silence of graveyard in Kashmir.”
“We want to ask the so-called biggest democracy called India and its authorities deployed here in Kashmir that what outcome they expect from unleashing this Hitlerism in Kashmir,” JKLF chairman said.
