Srinagar, December 20 (KNO) : Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman, Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan on Thursday condemned the police action of getting a separatist leader Muhammad Yasin Malik and his associates booked for ‘attempt to murder’. In a statement issued to KNO, Khan who also heads the KTMF said, “It was unfortunate that the ailing separatist leader who heads JKLF has been booked for attempt to murder for merely having staged peaceful protests against right violations in Kashmir.” Khan said such pressure pressures the Raj Bhawan was only pushing the soft separatism towards the wall. “Is protesting against the killing of seven innocent civilians a crime?” Seeking intervention of the lawyers’ fraternity, Khan said when people are booked for murder for merely holding peaceful protests the state of policing can only be imagined. Khan said the development of booking innocents for such frivolous charges would only set a bad precedence. He appealed the Indian civil society to rise to the occasion when even raising voice against human rights abuse is being seen as crime in Kashmir.(KNO)
