Yasin Malik wants Hizbul terror outfit chief to probe Sopore attacks


Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief, Yasin Malik has come up with yet another controversial statement. Malik has requested Hizb-ul-Mujahideen head Syed Salahudiin to probe attacks on telecom operators in Jammu and Kashmir. Three days ago, three officials of the government-run BSNL were injured after gunmen opened fire at a crowded market in north Kashmir’s Sopore.

As per eyewitness account, the gunmen targeted the employees of BSNL or Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, who were standing outside their shop. The injured were immediately taken to a hospital in Srinagar.

Malik had yesterday slammed the Jammu and Kashmir state government for allegedly “choking political space for people”, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik has vowed a 10-day “Jail Bharo” campaign starting today. The JKLF has termed this as a “Jail Bharo Tehreek”.

Addressing a press conference, Malik said that the campaign will aim at “thwarting all pro-resistance activities in Kashmir by the puppet state government.”

Malik also stated that the era of 1988 had come back to the valley during which peaceful protestors and demonstrators used to be bundled in Red 16.

“It was due to such state terrorism that youth here were compelled to take arms, hence changing Kashmir’s 5000 year old history and civilization,”

He also emphasised that later the “diplomats of Europe, UK, America and even so-called Indian civil society itself made bee line to Kashmir and urged people to seek their political rights peacefully.”

JLKF chief alleged that PDP was using Naeem Akhtar to even remove the statements of JKLF from the local Kashmiri dailies.

Calling the recent elections in the valley a farce, Malik said,

“In fact, these elections were psychologically rigged as a fear psychosis was created about the RSS backed BJP storming to power in the state.”

“But now Mufti Sayeed and his party are only paving the way for implementation of the RSS’s agenda on Kashmir,” he further added.
