“Despite stringent curfew, restrictions and other oppressive measures by police and Indian forces, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leaders and activists managed to reach and gather near Budshah Chowk Lal Chowk today,” a JKLF statement issued to GNS said.It said bypassing police cordon, restrictions and barricades, JKLF leaders and activists managed to reach Maisuma and started their march towards Lal Chowk.“Police which had already laid cordon around whole area immediately swung into action and cordoned this march from all sides. JKLF leaders and activists resisted this police aggression and raised slogans in favor of freedom and against gross human rights violations by Indian occupational forces in Kashmir,” the statement said, adding police on the occasion arrested JKLF leaders and activists including zonal vice president Muhammad Sideeq shah, zonal general secretary Sheikh Abdul Rashid, zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri, along with Ghulam Muhammad Dar, Sheikh M Aslam, Muhammad Haneef  Dar, Imtiyaz Ahmad Dar, Fayaz Ahmad Lone, Imtiyaz Ahmad Ganie, Basharat Ahmad Butt.

All the arrested were immediately shifted to police station Kothibagh.JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik is already in police custody from Thursday.Meanwhile, Yasin Malik in a statement said, “On one hand Kashmiris are being massacred, killed, maimed, blinded, choked and oppressed by Indian occupational forces and on the other hand oppressors are arranging visit of Indian prime minister to Kashmir to hoodwink international opinion and give an impression that all is well here.”“If Indian rulers think that oppression unleashed by their army and forces has crushed resistance in Kashmir, then they should find some courage to lift ban on political activities of the resistance camp and allow such programs,” Malik said.Meanwhile, JKLF chairman has paid glowing tributes to ‘Shaheed-e-Kashmir’ Ishfaq Majeed Wani who was killed on third day of Ramazan in 1990.“It was Shaheed Ishfaq Majeed’s desire to embrace martyrdom on Friday while fasting and this is what he had written on the first page of his personal dairy,” he said.
