Release of Yasin Malik, other Hurriyat leaders demanded through posters

UN urged to shun its criminal silence on Kashmir

Islamabad, May 18 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, posters have appeared in Srinagar and other areas to register the Kashmiris’ protest against the illegal detention of JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and other APHC leaders and youth languishing in different jails of the territory and India.

The posters have also appeared on social media with pictures of illegally detained JKLF chief, Muhammad Yasin Malik demanding his release. The posters read: “Indian illegal occupation authorities used all brutal means and inhuman tactics to silence Yasin Malik’s voice but they miserably failed in their nefarious designs.”

The posters read: “Yasin Malik is torch-bearer of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination and he is determined to take his mission to its logical conclusion, come what may.” “The health of Yasin Malik’s mother is fast deteriorating with each passing day due to her long separation from her son as the brutal occupation authorities have not allowed him to be with her for over two years,” the posters further read.

The posters say, “Yasin Malik remained a target of the BJP. The main reason is Yasin Malik’s ongoing peaceful struggle for Kashmir’s sovereignty and the role of his party. The cases against Yasin Malik are nothing but political vendetta.”

The posters conveyed a message to India that the Kashmiris will never surrender their just demand for their right to self-determination.

Also, the posters displayed by various pro-freedom organizations in Kashmir appealed to the United Nations to shun its criminal silence and indifference on Kashmir and urged the World Body to take notice of violation of the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination recognized by various UN Security Council resolutions especially the one passed on January 5, 1949. The posters further read: “Fettered and forsaken Kashmiris seek the civilized world’s attention to their unending plight and sufferings”.

Meanwhile, Jammu Kashmir Political Resistance Movement leader Jameel Ahmad has said that cases against JKLF Chairman, Mohammad Yasin Malik and other prominent resistance leaders including APHC Chairman, Massarat Aalam Butt, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Syed Asiya Andrabi, Nayeem Ahmad Khan and others are the worst example of Indian repression and its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
