“Innocent killings, oppression and suppression, spree of arrests and other acts of tyranny have turned Kashmir into a worst hell. Common people are being subject to such oppression which can only be termed as worst dictatorship in the name of democracy,” said the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik while condemning the “unrelenting oppression” unleashed by Indian forces across Kashmir.In a statement issued to GNS, Malik strongly condemned the “ongoing oppression” in Jammu Kashmir especially in the south and north Kashmir. “On one hand, Indian rulers and their Kashmiri stooges claim and propagate democracy and on the other hand are suppressing peoples voices through military and police might which is continuing unabated. The claims of democracy and continuous tyranny and oppression against unarmed civilians and peaceful political resistance can never go side by side.”JKLF chairman said that Jammu Kashmir is run by police and killing innocent humans, arresting peaceful political activists and leaders has become a normal here.He said that beating people, vandalizing their properties, humiliating honourable citizens has become a new normal for Indian forces that have no respect for human life or dignity.
“Killings, arrests, lootings and shootings cannot put a nation into submission which has resolved to fight for its freedom and dignity. Indian rulers must realize that people of Jammu Kashmir cannot be put into submission by these tyrannical acts and killings. In fact our resolve to achieve freedom and right to self-determination gets strengthen by this oppression,” he said.Meanwhile on JRL call, JKLF leaders and activists along with people from many walks of life staged two separate protest programs at Koker Bazar and Budshah chowk Srinagar, the JKLF statement said.It said JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and others participated in protest rally at Kokerbazar.
