Yasin Malik to go on hunger strike from today

67

 

Illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has threatened to go on hunger strike in Delhi’s Tihar jail from tomorrow (July 22) till death if his demands for a fair trial and physical presence in the courts were not met.

The JKLF leader is serving a life sentence on the order of a kangaroo court in a so-called terror funding case. Muhammad Yasin Malik has filed an application demanding personal appearance in the cases against him.

The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front in a statement in Srinagar stated that Malik’s non-presentation in court is illegal, barbaric and undemocratic.

Meanwhile, Yasin Malik’s 10-year-old daughter Raziyah Sultana in a passionate video message pleaded her father not to go on hunger strike and expressed the hope that the world would listen to her cry, and would impress upon India to release him immediately.—INP
