Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Muhammad Yasin Malik Saturday said strongly condemned the restrictions imposed on the martyrdom day of great Kashmiri leaders’ Mirwaiz Muhammad Farooq and Abdul Gani Lone.

He termed these restrictions as putting ban on freedom of speech.

“India and its Kashmiri stooges have choked every little space on peaceful public programs and have virtually turned Kashmir into a military or police garrison. Propagating democracy on one hand and not letting people to show their respect towards their martyred leaders on other hand speaks volumes about the hypocritical politics of these rulers,” he said.

Malik has been placed under house arrest in view of the May 21 programs announced by Hurriyat Conference (m).

Paying tributes to Abdul Gani Lone and Mirwaiz Mohammad Farooq, Yasin said, “great people who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of their nation are our national heroes and every Kashmiri is indebted to them. Today on their martyrdom day we pay homage to them and reiterate our pledge to take forward the mission for which these great people strived throughout their life and sacrificed their lives for.”

Terming the intimidating and abusive statement of BJP minister Lal Singh against Jammu Muslims anti-Muslim massacre, “as a clear sign of his immoral, unethical character and mental bankruptcy and his party’s real face against Muslims”, Yasin Malik said, “Lal Singh like criminal minded and freak should have been either in some mental asylum or jail but unfortunately they are enjoying power and absolute impunity these days.”

Lal Singh had asked visiting delegation: “it is our (BJP) government. Don’t you remember 1947?”

“The words uttered by Lal Singh against Jammu Muslims are a manifestation of RSS plans against Muslims of Jammu Kashmir that are being implemented by PDP-BJP alliance in Jammu Kashmir. Such is the height of hooliganism that a minister is directly threatening Jammu Muslims of dire consequences that too without any shame or fear of prosecution,” he said.

“Lal Singh, his party and masters in Delhi and Nagpur should know that today it is not 1947 and people of Kashmir have learned many lessons since then. Today if any Jammu Muslim is touched by any communal, every single Kashmiri Muslim will be at the back of Jammu Muslims and will do whatever it needs to save them from communal like Lal Singh etc,” Malik further said.

Assuring Jammu Muslims of every help and support, Yasin Malik said, “Jammu brethren will find Kashmiri Muslims at their back always and we today assure them that Lal Singh and people like him will not be allowed to raise their dirty eyes towards Jammu Muslims.”
