ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -31st Augst,2016) : The authorities have shifted the illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, and party leader, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, shifted to Joint interrogation Centre Humhama from Srinagar Central Jail. Yasin Malik was arrested on July 8 and was lodged at a police station in Srinagar.

He was shifted to the Central Jail Srinagar on July 30, KMS reported. Before being shifted to the JIC Humhama, Yasin Malik, talking to media persons termed the recent statement of the puppet Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, comparing freedom struggle with war in Syria as absurd and based on blatant lies. Mehbooba had asked, "Do Kashmiris want Syria-type Azadi?" "Comparing freedom struggle of Kashmiris with war in Syria or Iraq is ridiculous and shows mental bankruptcy of power-hungry politicians as Kashmiri people are fighting for their legitimate right guaranteed to them by the international community, United Nations and also pledged by the Indian Parliament and India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and many other leaders," the JKLF Chairman said.

"Hunger of power and lust of authority have turned these politicians blind and they are busy rubbing salt into the wounds of Kashmiris, pushing them to the wall and hence promoting violence," the JKLF Chief said, while strongly condemning the ongoing spree of killings, arrests, nocturnal raids, restrictions and beatings throughout the Kashmir Valley. He also condemned the arrest and of Advocate Hassan Babar Nehru in Doda and slapping of draconian Law Public Safety Act by the authorities. "Kashmir is an internationally-acknowledged issue that needs a resolution and people of Jammu and Kashmir being the masters of this land and principal party to this dispute have every right to pursue their freedom struggle peacefully and it is the duty of international community to fulfil its obligations vis-…-vis resolution of Jammu and Kashmir issue so that lasting peace, tranquillity and prosperity of South Asia is ensured and guaranteed," he said. Meanwhile, the JKLF Vice Chairman, Bashir Ahmad Butt, in a statement, condemned illegal solitary confinement and shifting of ailing Yasin Malik to JIC Humhama.
