UN should intervene to save Yasin Malik from India’s evil designs: Rehmani

Islamabad, May 24 (KMS): Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, Convener of All Parties Hurriyet Conference AJ&K Chapter, has strongly condemned the Indian authorities for creating a life threatening situation for incarcerated Kashmiri leader Muhammad Yasin Malik by denying him fundamental rights including right to defend against fabricated charges framed by a revengeful and partial establishment in Delhi and Srinagar.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad said that Yasin Malik and other Kashmiri leaders in Tihar and other jails had been demanding the right of self-determination for their people in accordance with the UN Charter, international law and the Security Council resolutions on Kashmir; so it is no treason or crime as the UN had itself adopted multiple resolutions to resolve the longstanding dispute.

He expressed concern that besides Yasin Malik there were other detained leaders including Massarrat Aalam Butt and Shabbir Ahmad Shah in detention whom Indian authorities want to indict and punish in contravention of the basic international law without right to due and proper defense. He stated that India’s brutal and hateful campaign had created a poisonous atmosphere in the region and it was the responsibility of the world body to prevent the Indian establishment from sentencing Muhammad Yasin Malik.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani warned that India must not be permitted to send Yasin Malik to gallows and at the same time open door to indictment and sentencing other scores of leaders in the same manner on fictitious grounds to silence the voice of freedom in occupied region of Jammu and Kashmir. The UN should take up the issue and urge India to release Muhammad Yasin Malik from prison, he emphasized.

Meanwhile, Pasban-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Chairman Uzair Ahmad Ghazali in a statement also criticized the silence of the international community over unilateral trial of Muhammad Yasin Malik by Indian kangaroo courts.
