ISLAMABAD: Mushaal Hussein Mullick, the wife of Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Yasin Maliksai said that Yasin Malik, a 54 year old non-violent political Leader of occupied Jammu and Kashmir, is locked up in the death cell of the notorious Tihar Jail since May 7, 2019.
He was arrested from his residence in Srinagar under a Public Safety Act (PSA), a draconian and oppressive legal instrument which India applies with impunity against Kashmir.
Mushaal, who is also Chairperson of Peace and Culture Organization, in a strong-worded reaction to the notorious Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act) court (TADA) which maliciously framed charges against Yasin Malik in 31-year-old Rubaiya Sayeed kidnapping case.
She said that the Indian government is victimizing Hurriyat leaders including Yasin Malik for his political ideology and struggle to regain the sovereign rights of his people.
The Chairperson said that Malik has been spent in Indian jails for the last 35 years for his stance on the Independence of Kashmir. “The Imprisonment of Yasin Malik, who is the powerful political voice of oppressed people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir actually reflects the extremist mindset of the Indian government,” she added.
Moreover, she said that Facist Narendra Modi government tasked NIA to concort and engineer cases of “terror funding” against Yasin Malik to malign him and his political struggle as terrorism.
She said that after exercising all these brutal tactics, now the fascist regime is using judiciary as a tool to intimidate Yasin Malik and other Kashmiris, as it could be judged from the recently TADA court decision that charged him in a false thirty year old abduction case.
Mushaal went on to say that Yasin Malik is not allowed to meet her and eight year old daughter Razia Sultana since September 1, 2014. Continuous mental and physical torture is going on as Yasin Maliks prison room with a size of 5 by 7 with an open toilet due to which his health has become quiet frail, she added.
She said that the extremely contaminated environment has further aggravated his already weak health as he has serious ailments related to vital organs of his body including both his kidneys and metallic heart valve, which needs certain life-saving drugs which are not being given to him.
India is violating all laws including the Geneva Conventions, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, inhuman or Degrading Treatment and Punishment, as well as customary international law codified in Standard Minimum Rules for Treatment of Prisoners adopted by the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council in Yasin Malik case.
She said that apparently, India has planned to victimize Yasin Malik and to keep him behind the bars for his whole life or to hang him God forbid so as to remove and eliminate a leader who is part of the solution and not a problem. However, she vowed that Yasin Malik and other Hurriyat leaders are determined to carry on the non-violent struggle despite the Modi Regime draconian laws.
We demand immediate release of Yasin Malik from Tihar death cell and be immediately shifted to a hospital’s ICU as his life is in danger.
“I demand the United Nation to declare Yasin Malik a prisoner of conscience and “Protective Personality” and also appeal to release him and all political prisoners in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” she added.
