Srinagar, June 8: “People of Jammu Kashmir, Palestine and other suppressed nations desire to live with dignity, honor and freedom but international community is denying them these basic human desires,” said JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday.
He said “our struggle for freedom and self-determination is genuine and legitimate and use of military means, political gimmicks or oppressive measures can not deter this nation from pursuing this sacred goal”
“The only way to ensure lasting peace, prosperity, development and tranquility is to accept this reality and right of Kashmiris and grant it to them without any further delay,” Malik according to a statement issued to GNS said while addressing a public gathering at Chrar-I-Shareef on the occasion of Jummatul Wida.
In his address, JKLF chairman said, “Jammu Kashmir has been turned into a killing field where Indian colonial forces are killing humans at will and no one among the international community seems to bother or feel any pain. In fact international community on many occasions chooses to blame the oppressed Kashmiris for being killed, maimed, blinded and vandalized.”
“Similarly, Palestinians are being brutalized by Zionist Israel and international community especially the US instead of stopping killers is seen vetoing at UNO to shield Israeli crimes,” he said adding that today, the “so-called” civilized world has started giving preference to trade ties and strategic military and political partnerships over humanity, human rights, human dignity and human lives and this attitude has turned the whole universe into a battle field where human blood is spilled without any regret or shame.
He said that humans in Jammu Kashmir, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Chechnya, Libya, Afghanistan and many other places in the world are facing “catastrophes” because of the callous, inhuman and unfortunate attitude of the international community.
Replying to the assertions made by Home Minister Rajnath Singh that separatists are playing with the future of Kashmiri children, Malik said that “how can those people who are killing our young ones, blinding our budding flowers and maiming our kith and kin especially from last four years have the audacity to deliver sermons on saving new generations”.
“Freedom and right of self-determination are our birth right, our desire, our aspiration and our demand and only way to address Kashmiri issue, only way to ensure lasting peace, prosperity, development and tranquility is to accept this reality and right of Kashmiris and grant it to them without any further delay,” he said.
