AJK govt shows serious concern over deteriorating health of Yasin Malik 

Mirpur, July 29, 2022 (PPI-OT):Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister, Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan, while voicing his serious concern over the deteriorating health condition of incarcerated Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yasin Malik has urged the international community to play its due role to save Malik’s life.

The AJK Prime Minister in a statement issued in Mirpur on Friday, said Yasin Malik’s health condition has further deteriorated due to the continued hunger strike. We fear that the Indian authorities intend to slowly push the Hurriyat leader to death by detaining and depriving him from medical and other basic facilities, he said.

Sardar Tanveer Ilyas said it is quite unfortunate that international media and human rights organizations have maintained complete silence over the ill treatment meted out to Yasin Malik. He said that given the urgency of the matter there was a dire need that the international community particularly the world human rights organisations should take effective notice of the matter and influence the government of India to release Yasin Malik and other Kashmiri prisoners who have been booked under concocted cases and left to rot in jails within an outside Kashmir.

The AJK Prime Minister said instead of watching the situation like a mute spectator, the world community must shun its policy of indifference and apathy towards Kashmiris and play its due role in mitigating their sufferings.

Referring to the worsening situation in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he said Kashmir has been a powder keg that can jeopardise the peace of the entire world if left unresolved. “Durable peace and stability in the South Asian region was inescapably linked to the settlement of Kashmir dispute,” he pointed out.

India’s fascist government, he said, has unleashed all hell in Kashmir. Kashmiris are being subjected to the worst human rights violations by the India’s fascist government, he said. He added that the Indian government cannot suppress Kashmiris’ legitimate struggle and their passion for freedom through its brutal suppression.
