Yasin Malik Condemns Shelling On JKLF Protestors By PaK Police17 March 2018
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik said that Kashmiris are being killed on ceasefire line (LoC) on daily basis but no one among the international community seems to bother. Instead of playing as fire-fighters, United Nations should play the role of an arbitrator and push for an early resolution of Kashmir issue. The spokesman said aggression by Azad Kashmir police on a peaceful rally against ceasefire line firings, in which many people have been injured, is most condemnable. 'The battle for freedom is long and I request JKLF activists and well-wishers to remain peaceful and show maximum restraint while treading the path of freedom,' Spokesman quoted the Malik saying. Earlier on 16th March 2018, a historical people March was taken out from Tatapani to Madarpora in Azad Kashmir. Organized by Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Azad Kashmir against shelling and firings by Indian government forces on common citizens living alongside the ceasefire line in Jammu Kashmir especially on Azad Kashmir side in which, men, women, children and cattle are being killed with impunity and crops, residential houses and other public properties are being destroyed, the march was led by JKLF senior vice chairman Abdul Hamid Butt and attended by all the senior leaders and members of JKLF. The spokesman further said that delegations from UK, Europe, UAE and Saudi Arabia also participated in the long march. Thousands of people including women, men, youth and children participated in the long march with great passion and fervour. This peaceful march started from Tatapani and reached Madarpur where the participants held a peaceful Sit-in against the shelling that has till now killed dozens, injured hundreds and destroyed properties worth millions. The protest sit-in was being addressed by JKLF leaders when some personal from Azad Kashmir police started unproved firing and shelling on protesters injuring many among whom some are said to be serious. Congratulating the leadership of JKLF Azad Kashmir for their historical protest march against the killing of people during shelling alongside ceasefire line (LoC), JKLF chairman said that our struggle for freedom is a long drawn struggle during which we have to keep our passion intact, show maximum restraint and keep treading the path of truth and resistance.
