Gilani terms allegations against Yasin Malik baseless

Srinagar, March 15, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that the allegations levelled against the illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, are baseless.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar while commenting on the dossier of slapping draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) on Muhammad Yasin Malik said these are known to everybody and people very well understand the mind-set behind such unjustified accusations.

He said these revengeful policies have never improved the survival of the oppressor and Indian rulers are themselves witness to it. He said the courts have acquitted the accused in the decades-old fake cases long back but even after acquittal the authorities again try to dig out these dead horses to quench the thirst of the collective conscience.

The APHC Chairman said not only leadership but most of the people are victims of the vandalism and lawlessness for the past over seven decades. He said allegations against Hurriyat leadership like disturbing peace, threatening citizens’ lives or attacking schools is not even worth any response, as such childish accusations just need to be laughed at.

Syed Ali Gilani said before signing such dossiers the educated bureaucracy and judicial fraternity need to apply their own mind and intellect as well, because by doing such silly things their wisdom also becomes questionable. He said instead of these childish actions, Indian rulers need to get to the ground realities and show some bravery to defuse the volcano in waiting lest it may be too late to mend the situation.

Meanwhile, the General Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML), Muhammad Rafiq Ganai, in a statement in Srinagar expressed serious concern over the fresh wave of crackdown on the Hurriyat leaders and activists ahead of the upcoming so-called elections. “The authorities have turned the entire Kashmir into a jail,” he added.
