Malik visits Dalgate, expresses solidarity with Qaisar’s bereaved family

Srinagar, Jun 04: Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik along with scores of JKLF leaders on Monday visited the residence of slain youth, Qaisar Amin at Dalgate.

According to the statement, Malik along with JKLF leaders including Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and Altaf Khan visited the bereaved family of Qaisar Amin and expressed condolences to them.

He also met with his shattered sisters and expressed solidarity with them.

Speaking to the bereaved family and other mourners, Malik said that crushing to death under military vehicles has become a new tool employed by Indian forces against Kashmiris.

He said that “Indian forces used shells, bullets, pellets and other weapons in past and now killing by crushing under armed vehicles has been started by the colonial forces that too without any regret or shame.”

Malik said that “Indian forces have crossed every limit of despotism in Jammu Kashmir and a direct responsibility of these gruesome killings lies on the shoulders of pro-India politicians, political parties and especially the ruling regime which is providing legal cover and immunity to these terrorists in uniform.”

He said that it is evident from all this state sponsored terrorism that Indian forces are deployed here only to kill humans.

JKLF chief said that orphan Qaisar Amin was the only bread-earner of his family comprising of two little sisters whom he left behind in a state of mourning and distress.

Malik said that thousands of young and old are languishing in different jails Indian and Jammu Kashmir. “Youth are being tortured, terrorized and humiliated that too in the name of democracy and peace,” he added.

He said that nocturnal raids in the month of Holy Ramadan, desecrating the sanctity of homes and arresting innocent boys have become an order of the day phenomenon now which is highly condemnable.
