Yasin Malik among nine detained
Srinagar: Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir
Liberation Front (JKLF) Yasin Malik and eight other members of
the separatist group were detained here on Friday after they led a
protest against the killing of a youth in Boniyar village of
Baramulla earlier this week.
Malik and eight other JKLF members, including Showkat
Ahmad Bakshi, were detained when they attempted to march
towards the city-centre Lal Chowk from Maisuma neighbourhood.
"Even though people here are now protesting peacefully,
the temperament of security forces has become such that they
are trigger-happy," he told reporters before he was detained.
Malik also condemned the "political statements" issued by
Army generals and termed its Sadbhavna operations as
"Is India a democratic country or has it become a banana
republic? Now, Army generals are issuing political statements.
The political leadership gives one statement on Kashmir and
Army Generals next day give another statement to contradict
it," Malik claimed.
A large posse of policemen prevented the group from
marching towards Lal Chowk after which Malik and others were
detained and taken to a nearby police station.
Malik was protesting against the killing of Altaf Ahmad
Sood, a student, who was killed when CISF personnel fired on
protesters in north Kashmir`s Boniyar village on Monday.
The JKLF leader said the protest is also to save the
peaceful struggle of Kashmiris.
