Srinagar | June 8 : Stating that the so-called assembly and all its members are enemies of Kashmir and deployed to harm national interests of Kashmiris, JKLF Chief Yasin Malik, who is lodged in central jail Srinagar, today called for election boycott in the upcoming by-elections in Anantnag also known as Islamabad assembly segment.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is contesting from the assembly segment. The seat was left vacant after the death of former chief minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed.
“Boycotting this anti-Kashmiri plot is like expressing gratitude to the great martyrs who laid down their lives for our better tomorrow. Every Islambadian (locals of Islamabad) should keep away from by-elections that are to be held in holy month of Ramadhan,” he said in a message sent from central jail.
Malik said that so-called assembly, all its members and so-called rulers are actually deployed to serve cause of India and harm Kashmiri interests.
“Therefore every Kashmiri should boycott elections held for these assemblies and assembly members. While appealing people of Islamabad (Anantnag) to keep away from by-polls to be held in holy month of Ramadhan, Yasin sahib said that this election process is against the interests of Kashmiri’s,” he said, adding, how can any Kashmiri vote for those who are hell bent upon implementing RSS anti-Muslim, anti-Kashmir agenda here.
“How can we vote and strengthen those who by implementing conspiratorial projects want to change our demography and turn majority into minority. How can any Kashmiri vote and strengthen those who hanged Shaheed Baba-i-Qoum Muhammad Maqbool Butt, Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru and who are assigned the job of defending those forces who have till now killed more than one Lakh Kashmiris, attacked the chastity of our mothers and sisters, killed thousands in custody and have disappeared thousands after taking into custody,” Malik said.
