Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik was released from police custody on Sunday.
“During recent incarceration, the health of JKLF chairman has fallen considerably and from last some days he is suffering from an acute intestinal infection and has been advised by Doctors to take high antibiotics,” a JKLF spokesman said in a statement.
“It is pertinent to mention that from last four years, JKLF chairman has been in and out of jails and incarcerating him has become a daily routine and hobby of so-called rulers and their police. A persistent and repeated incarceration has jeopardized his health and he has grown too weak,” he said.
The spokesman in a statement said that “the repeated incarcerations of JKLF chairman by Police has said that claims of being biggest democracy and choking space on peaceful politics in Jammu Kashmir are two contradictory things and if so-called rulers and their masters in Delhi have any faith in democracy they should find some guts to allow political dissent and peaceful resistance of the people of Jammu Kashmir.”
