Shutdown on Tuesday against ‘ill-treatment’ to Yasin Malik: Joint Resistance Leadership

Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called a protest shutdown in Kashmir on Tuesday against “ill-treatment meted-out to the ailing and incarcerated JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik by NIA at Delhi”.

In a statement, the JRL said the shutdown would also be observed against the “ongoing aggression of NIA and ED against Kashmiri resistance leaders, activists, senior businessmen, trade union leaders, kith and kin of resistance leaders and other people from different walks of like.”

The JRL said that the “highhandedness” of the NIA has “forced” Malik to go on a hunger strike. “The life of ailing Yasin Malik who is admitted at RML Hospital Delhi is in danger and rulers and their agencies are busy in playing with his life callously,” said the JRL, in the statement.
