SRINAGAR: People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) on Wednesday said that life imprisonment given to Yaseen Malik is unfortunate and a setback to the efforts for peace.
In a statement, a PAGD spokesman said, “We are afraid that this will further compound the uncertainties in the region and will only fuel more alienation and separatist feelings.”
“NIA Court has delivered its verdict but not justice. The triumphalism being displayed by the BJP and the corporate media is bound to prove counterproductive,” he said.
Meanwhile, we suggest that Yaseen Malik should avail all legal opportunities to contest this verdict, said a PAGD spokesman in a statement.
