While strongly condemning the registration of “Murder Charges” against JKLF leader Mohammad Yasin Malik and his other associates and shifting them to the Srinagar central jail, Chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani said that the BJP-PDP coalition government has converted the Jammu & Kashmir into a major jail and they are subjecting the pro-freedom people to the political vengeance. Syed Ali Geelani also condemned the detention of prominent lawyer Shabir Ahmad Bakshi (Kreedi). While demanding immediate release of Yasin Malik, Showkat Ahmad Bakshi, Noor Mohammad Kalwal, Sheikh Abdul Rasheed, Bashir Kashmiri, Ghulam Mohammad Dar, Nazir Ahmad Rather, Ishfaq Hussain, Muneeb Javaid and all other political prisoners, Syed Ali Geelani said that this government policy will have serious consequences and it will also increase the political uncertainty and instability in the state. In a statement to KNS, Syed Ali Geelani said that there is “Jungle Raj” like situation in the state. He said that Mohammad Yasin Malik and his other associates were protesting against the three innocent killings in the Rajouri district of the Jammu division at the hands of the VDC terrorists. Instead of putting VDC terrorists to task and disbanding this illegal armed force, the state government on the directions of the communal forces started to tighten their grip on the pro-freedom people and have registered murder charges against them. This is the extreme of the lawlessness and it has no justification. Syed Ali Geelani however cautioned the government that these kinds of cheap tactics will not deter the pro-freedom leadership and they will continue to register their protest against the oppression and the state terrorism of the government.
