Srinagar, August 11, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the illegally detained Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, has urged the people to keep unity in their ranks to resist the oppression let loose by India and its collaborators in the territory.
Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar said, unwavering faith in Allah Almighty, strong unity and unrelenting resistance are the tools needed to overcome the forces of oppression and tyranny and these tools will surely take us to our desired goal of freedom.
The JKLF Chief maintained that struggle for freedom demands sacrifices and this journey is always a long, tedious journey but the nations which decide to fight the forces of darkness and oppression tread this thorny path and finally reach to their desired goal.
Yasin Malik also paid rich tributes to martyred senior resistance leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz, on his martyrdom anniversary and said that he was a humble soul and dedicated freedom-lover who always stood in the front row and even sacrificed his life for the just cause. He said that the sacrifices and contribution of the martyred leader in the ongoing freedom movement would always be remembered.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz was shot dead by Indian troops on this day in 2008 while he was leading a big march from Srinagar to the Line of Control against the economic blockade of the Kashmir Valley by Hindu extremists of Jammu. Yasin Malik also expressed grief and sorrow over the sad demise of veteran religious scholar, Allama Muhammad Ashraf Andrabi, terming it as a great loss to the Kashmiri people.
Meanwhile, the JKLF spokesman in a statement in Srinagar said that the authorities of Rajbagh police station were not allowing relatives to meet the party leader, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, who is lodged at the police station.
