Ailing JKLF chief Yasin Malik Sunday visited Sonabrari Kokernag in south Kashmir along with his associates to express condolences to the bereaved family of Lassa Khan who breathed last yesterday.
Malik said sacrifices rendered by people like Lassa Khan are “our precious treasure”.
“These sacrifices motivate us to keep treading the path of thorns happily,” Malik said in a statement. “Lassa Chacha and his family are symbols of sacrifice. This family sacrificed six of its sons for freedom and this is why nation of Kashmir is indebted to their sacrifices and struggle.”
Malik met the wife of late Khan and other members of the bereaved family to offer condolence and express solidarity.
Meanwhile, JKLF delegations comprising senior leaders including Showkat Ahmad Bakshi, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Zahoor Ahmad Bhat and others visited Tral and Baramullah to participate in twin condolence meetings.
While addressing condolence meeting at Tral where recently three youth—Ishaq Parray, Asif Mir and Ashiq Hussain “embraced martyrdom”—JKLF leaders said: “India has choked every little space on peaceful struggle and this pro-violent approach of Indians is pushing our young ones to the wall.”
They said that this “dictatorial approach” of India is responsible for these innocent killings. Leaders reiterated their pledge to take the mission of these “great Martyrs to its desired goal”.
At Baramulla, JKLF leaders participated in a condolence meeting that was held in remembrance of Shaheed scholar Tahir Rasool Sofi who was killed in cold blood by Indian army in 2013.
