Yasin Malik grieved over Amir’s death; ‘Kashmiri blood is cheap and valueless’

Srinagar, Apr 15: Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Sunday expressed grief and sorrow over the death of Kangan youth Amir.
“Killing of yet another young Kashmiri is a glaring example of the fact that Kashmiri blood is cheap and valueless in the eyes of oppressors,” Malik said,
On Malik’s directions, a JKLF delegation led by JKLF district President Ganderbal Bashir Ahmad Rather (Boya) visited Chatergul Kangan and participated in funeral prayers and burial of Amir Ahmad Lone.
Delegation met with the bereaved family and expressed condolences to them.
While condemning the killing of Amir, Malik said his killing has yet again proved the fact that Indian bullets and pellets have only one trajectory and target and that is to hit heads, eyes, chests and faces of innocent Kashmiris and snatching their lives.
JKLF chairman said that young Kashmiris are being killed on daily basis by forces and this is directly abetted by pro-India politicians and rulers of Jammu Kashmir who are actually acting as handles of the Indian axe that is butchering Kashmiris.
