We suffer as we forget teachings of saints: Malik
Says pro-India politicians, parties responsible for our miseries
Srinagar: Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Mohammad Yasin Malik on Saturday said that “our saints and spiritual leaders showed us the way of living a dignified life. They taught us to strive for honor and dignity of humans”.
Addressing people at Sultan-ul-Aarifeen Makhdoom Sahib Srinagar, Malik as per a statement issued here said that “We have forgotten the teachings of these spiritual leaders and because of this ignorance; we are today suffering in our daily lives.”
Malik visited the Dargah of great religious and spiritual leader of Kashmir Sheikh Hamza Makhdoom Rahmatullah Alliah to pay reverence and expresses his gratitude towards the great saint who taught Kashmiris the way of living with dignity and pride.
In his speech, he said that “Hazrat Sheikh Hamza Makhdoom (RAH), led us on the religious, spiritual and political fronts. It was this great thinker and spiritual leader who besides providing us the much needed religious and spiritual teachings, taught us the way of living with dignity and honor and resisting falsehood and tyranny.”
Terming all elections held under ‘Indian occupation’ as ‘damaging to the cause and interests of the people of Jammu Kashmir’, Malik said that “India to hoodwink international opinion has always orchestrated a stage-managed drama in the name of elections in Jammu Kashmir and termed the participation of people in these elections as a vote in favor of its illegal occupation.”
JKLF chairman said that “we as a living nation should stay away from a process that is harmful to our interests and boycott these as we have boycotted in recent municipal elections.”
Appealing people to boycott upcoming Panchyat elections, Malik said that boycott by more than 95% Kashmiris during previously held municipal election drama has defeated tall Indian claims on Kashmir.
“Now, a new narrative is being put forth by some people that our boycott has brought BJP in Kashmir, which is not good. Similar kind of deceitful politics was played during 2014 assembly elections and on the same pretext of keeping RSS and BJP out participation of people was manipulated by pro-India political parties,” he said.
“We want to tell this fringe elements spreading these silly arguments that it hardly matters to Kashmiris who is in power as a collaborator and tool of oppression,” he said.
JKLF chairman said that “frustrated by recent boycott, rulers and their local supporters have expedited the spree of killings and other oppressive measures in valley.
