Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik has asked the Indian National Investigation Agency (NIA) to summon him to know the truth and to stop demonizing freedom leaders and the businessmen of the territory.

According to KMS, Muhammad Yasin Malik’s remarks come close on the heels of NIA’s summons to JKLF Zonal President, Noor Muhammad Kalwal. Kalwal has been asked by the investigating agency to present himself at its New Delhi office.

“NIA should summon me if they are serious about knowing the truth,” the JKLF Chairman said in a media interview. He said the reality is that New Delhi, through the NIA, started the media trial of Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and others and later cast its net on the family members and political colleagues of these leaders.

The NIA has arrested six Hurriyat leaders Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Altaf Ahmed Shah, Shahidul Islam, Ayaz Akbar, Merajudin Kalwal and Farooq Ahmed Dar. Also, senior APHC leader Shabbir Ahmed Shah has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate. All the arrested leaders have been lodged at Delhi’s Tihar jail.

Yasin Malik said that for a long time, the NIA has been summoning political activists and businessmen to Delhi and quizzing them for hours. He said NIA has arrested many leaders and businessmen and is continuing its media trial against Kashmiris.

He asked Delhi that if the NIA was sure about charges levelled against the leaders, then it should refrain from targeting the family members and friends of the leadership. “For us, Kashmir struggle is sacred. It has been nourished by the blood of innocent people and in spite of propaganda, intimidations, threats and torture we will keep the flag and flame of this struggle high and will leave no stone unturned to take this struggle to its
desired goal,” the JKLF Chairman maintained.
