New Delhi, May 31 (KMS): The illegally detained Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, who has been awarded life sentence by an Indian kangaroo court in a sham trial, has been shifted to an isolated cell in New Delhi’s Tihar jail.
His mother and sister have been denied access to him in jail.
On the other hand, the Indian court has summoned Dr Rubiya Sayeed, the younger sister of Mehbooba Mufti, as a witness in Muhammad Yasin Malik’s case on July 15.
Interestingly, the court has summoned Dr Rubiya Sayeed in a so-called kidnap case despite the fact that she had herself acknowledged that the-then JKLF chief commander Ashfaq Majeed Wani and other party activists had treated her like their sister. Her sister Mehbooba Mufti, too, has openly supported Muhammad Yasin Malik against life sentence to him by the Indian NIA court.
Now, Muhammad Yasin Malik has been shifted to an isolated cell in Tihar jail, where his activities are monitored through close circuit cameras.
The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front in a statement issued in Srinagar denounced the shifting of the party chief to the small isolated cell saying that New Delhi wants to make Muhammad Yasin Malik a psychological patient before pushing him to the jaws of death.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat AJK leader, Abdul Hameed Lone, addressing a press conference in Islamabad said the Kashmiri diaspora and overseas Pakistanis are playing a vital role in highlighting the Kashmir dispute at the international level. He urged them to step up their efforts to expose the atrocities being perpetrated by Indian troops on the innocent people of IIOJK. He said that it this context, he visited the UK last month, where he met the British legislators, including leaders from the Pakistani and Kashmiri communities.
Hameed Lone said an Indian court recently sentenced the Kashmiri Hurriyat leader, Yasin Malik, to life for his key role in the ongoing Kashmir freedom movement. He appealed to the international community to take cognizance of the victimization of Yasin Malik by the Indian government.
