Mushaal pays tribute to Yasin Malik for completing 5-year in unlawful detention


Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) for Human Rights and Women Empowerment Mushaal Hussein Mullick paid tribute to the most powerful voice of the Kashmir freedom struggle Mohammad Yasin Malik on the completion of five years of his unlawful incarceration in Indian jails, who was a main source of inspiration for Kashmiri people battling to break shackles of Indian slavery. Mushaal Mallcik, wife of Yasin Malik, in a statement on Thursday, said that the revolutionary Yasin Malik was detained by brutal Indian forces from his residence in 2019 this day and sent to Jammu Jail under the Public Safety Act.

She said that later in May, he was transferred to the notorious Delhi Tihar Jail, as the fascist Indian government implicated him in fake, frivolous and fabricated cases of terrorism to silence the most powerful voice of Kashmir’s freedom struggle. Mushaal went on to say that the special court in Delhi sentenced Yasin Malik to life imprisonment in the same fake cases and now the supremacist Narendra Modi’s government was hell-bent sentence him to death as a part of its policy of political vengeance and political victimization. The SAPM pointed out that despite the constant deterioration of his health and serious threats to his life, he was denied basic medical facilities, as he was kept in solitary confinement, adding that even his lawyer was not allowed to meet him. She stated that all the state coercive measures were being implied against him to break him; however, despite all these state terrorism and fascist and inhuman acts, he did not budge an inch from his principled stance. Mushaal urged that the UN bodies and human rights organisations should raise voice for this prisoner of conscious, who was illegally incarcerated for his sole crime of seeking a birthright for his people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). She saluted all Kashmiri prisoners including Yasin Malik for their determination and sacrifices, who were the real and true heroes of the nation.
