Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik Monday said that the killers of innocent Kashmiris cannot evade punishment and will have to face justice. He said that they will not stop staging protests till the killers of Pathribal are brought to justice.
In a statement issued to CNS, Malik said that the Indian army’s decision of giving clean chit to its killer officers of Pathribal massacre and now reports of Defense Minister being against reopening the case is all part of Indian oppressive attitude towards the people of Jammu Kashmir.
“After army’s clean chit to killers of Pathribal, pro-India politicians and rulers of Jammu Kashmir started their stage theater of portraying of being against the army decision,” Malik said. “These politicians did same in the case of Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru, 2008 and 2010 innocent killings and other massacres. This all is done under a well planned program to diffuse the tension.”
He added: “Killing civilians in the name of foreign militants and then giving killers clean chit is an ugly stain on the Indian democracy and has clearly revealed the fact that Kashmir is governed by army and police.”
Malik said that JKLF will deliberate upon this issue threadbare and soon issue a comprehensive protest program against this Indian oppressive behavior.
