The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has expressed deep concern over its illegally detained Chairman Yasin Malik’s deteriorating health as a result of the ongoing hunger strike from July 22 in Tihar Jail against Indian judicial injustices.
The JKLF spokesperson in a briefing in Islamabad said that Yasin Malik’s life is threatened by hunger strike and by not taking essential life-saving medicines.
He said that despite the low heart rate and blood pressure, the Indian government has shifted him back from the hospital to the jail in a semi-dead state, where no one is being informed about his condition. Thus, the hunger strike that has been going on for eleven days has increased the public’s concern regarding Yasin Malik’s health.
The spokesman condemned this inhumane, undemocratic and illegal behavior of India and appealed to the United Nations and other world human rights organizations to intervene to save the precious life of Muhammad Yasin Malik.
In the press briefing, the spokesperson appealed to the people of Jammu Kashmir to observe August 5, 2022 as a Black Day, a Day of Protest and a Day of Exploitation.
