(KTMF) President Mr Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan.

Srinagar Dec 20 : The Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman Mr Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan has condemned the police action of getting senior separatist leader Muhammad Yasin Malik and his associates booked for attempt to murder.

In a statement Khan who also heads the KTMF said it was unfortunate that the ailing separatist leader who heads JKLF has been booked for attempt to murder for merely having staged peaceful protests against right violations in Kashmir.

Khan said such pressure pressures the Raj Bhawan was only pushing the soft separatism towards the wall. “Is protesting against the killing of seven innocent civilians a crime?”

Seeking intervention of the lawyers’ fraternity, Khan said when people are booked for murder for merely holding peaceful protests the state of policing can only be imagined.

Khan said the development of booking innocents for such frivolous charges would only set a bad precedence. 

Khan appealed the Indian civil society to rise to the occasion when even raising voice against human rights abuse is being seen as crime in Kashmir.

A court here Wednesday sent chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, Yasin Malik to four days remand after police brought charges of attempt to murder against him and his associates.
