Tihar Jail

Srinagar: “Jails are our second home and enduring torture and torment is our passion. Shifting of JKLF incarcerated chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik to Delhi and getting remand for his custody up to 22nd April by NIA and putting him in Tihar jail cannot and will never break Kashmiri national resolve to fight freedom,” said the acting chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Abdul Hameed Butt on Wednesday.
While condemning the prolonged incarceration and now shifting of party chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik to Tihar Jail, Delhi by NIA during the intervening night of 8th and 9th April, Butt in a statement issued to GNS said that “jails are our second home”.
“Such tactics cannot and will never deter us and the Kashmiri nation who have rendered unflinching sacrifices for the cause of their freedom and right to self-determination,” he said.
While lamenting over the “callous attitude” of Indian authorities, Butt informed that Malik’s old aged ailing mother and two sisters are stuck in Jammu since yesterday morning who were scheduled to meet him at noon in Kot Balwal jail. “Yesterday the news of his shifting to Delhi came as a surprise to them,” he said.
“Ironically this dictatorship is going on under the garb of so-called biggest democracy and more irony is that international community is watching all this as a mute spectator,” Butt said.
Butt said JKLF after choosing the path of unarmed, non-violent and peaceful mode of struggle in 1994 has remained wedded to the decision.
“Even after the announcement of unilateral ceasefire more than 600 party members were martyred and numerous attempts were made to eliminate Yasin Malik,” he said.
“JKLF is an ideology preached by the father of our nation Muhammad Maqbool Butt who spent many years in Tihar Jail, was hanged and buried there. Yasin Malik himself has been to Tihar many a times, spent many years of his life there in solitary confinement cell butt has not and will never budge before Indian hegemony,” JKLF acting chairman said.
