Illegally detained Kashmiri Hurriyat leader and Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, is on a hunger strike in New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail.
Yasin Malik started his hunger strike on Friday morning against the denial of justice and fair trial to him by the Indian kangaroo courts.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment by an Indian court on May 25, this year, in false cases registered against him.
As per a JKLF statement, Yasin Malik had written to the Indian government for a physical appearance before the court in false cases registered against him. He also requested for cross examination of witnesses himself and said that he would sit on hunger strike if his request was not accepted by the Indian government.—KMS
