Incarcerated chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik lashed out at the international community for maintaining silence over what he called “ongoing carnage” in Kashmir.

“Ongoing carnage in Kashmir by forces and silence of the international community over it can only be termed as cold-blooded. Mayhem at Mujgund in which more than half a dozen residential houses were raised to ground by forces is actually a tiny example of aggression in Kashmir,” a JKLF spokesman quoted Malik as having said in his message from jail.  

He said that on JRL call,  JKLF leaders and activists alongside people from different walks of life including women, staged candlelight protests against ongoing “onslaught” in Kashmir. The protests were held at Zaina-kadal Srinagar and Pathan-Pora Budgam Kashmir, he added. 

“On seventh consecutive day, JKLF leaders and activists braving heavy police restrictions, intimidations’ and threats held peaceful candlelight protests against ongoing aggression against Kashmiris,” the spokesman said.  

In his message sent out from incarceration that was delivered by JKLF leaders to protesters JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said, “Today world is celebrating international human rights day. Seminars and programs will be held on human rights of humans and humanity. Kashmir is burning and Kashmiris are being brutalized by aggression but no one is uttering a word against this inhuman behavior of New Delhi in Kashmir which is most regrettable.”

The JKLF chairman said, “The way peaceful candlelight protests against human rights abuses in Kashmir have been dealt with iron fist by the forces proves the fact that Jammu and Kashmir is a police state run according to the whims and wishes of police and forces.” 

Meanwhile, a spokesman of Hurriyat Conference (M) in a statement said that in view of the ongoing Human Rights Week, the activists of  Hurriyat Conference (M) and Awami Action Committee (AAC) on call of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) continued to hold candlelight protests for the seventh day. Today evening protest was held at Nowshera, Malbagh areas of Srinagar in which a number of people also participated, the spokesman said, adding that the protestors raised the slogans demanding end to human rights violations.
