Muhammad Yasin Malik, Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has been arrested by police on Thursday and lodged at police station Kothi-bagh.
A JKLF spokesman said that a large contingent of police raided the office of JKLF at Abi-Guzar Srinagar and took him in custody. Malik was presumably arrested to prevent him from attending protest program of JRL at Jamia Masjid tomorrow against desecration of the Holy Masjid.
Prior to his arrest by police, Malik while speaking to media person who had gathered outside JKLF office, said that rulers and the state wants to divide Kashmiri nation and promote state of anarchy here and it is the duty of all young, old, men and women of Kashmir to understand this conspiratorial scheme of government and its allies and remain vigilant and steadfast to safeguard our unity and oneness.
JKLF chairman said that JRL has called for a peaceful protest at Jamia Masjid on Friday, December 4, 2019, against its desecration by some miscreants. This was not a political rally, Jalsa or program but a gathering to boost unity among the ranks and files of common people and eradicate anarchy and hatred from our society. But police authorities at the behest of rulers have chosen to take us in custody and disallow Jamia Masjid program and hence promote anarchy and chaos in Kashmir.
