SRINAGAR — Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called shutdown tomorrow in Kashmir against the arrest spree, ban on Jamaat-e-Islami and slapping of Public Safety Act (PSA) on JKLF chief Yasin Malik.
“Arbitrary arrest and detention of senior resistance leader and chairman JKLF Muhammad Yasin Malik and many others under draconian PSA and shifting of Yasin Sahib to Kot-balwal jail Jammu is most condemnable act,” said the JRL, in a statement.
“This spree of arrests, ban on Jamat-e-Islami and attempts to tinker with hereditary state subject law under the pretext of 35-A deserves our stiff protest and resistance and people of Kashmir besides holding peaceful protests after Friday prayers will also observe a complete and comprehensive shutdown tomorrow on 8th March 2019.”
Meanwhile, Joint resistance leadership (JRL) also condemned the grenade blast at Jammu bus stand.
In a statement, the JRL said that attacks on unarmed civilians are the most reproachful act which should be condemned by all civilized humans.
“While praying for the speedy recovery of those injured in today’s blast, JRL said that our hearts go to those families whose kith and kin have lost their lives or got injuries in this blast and we express our solidarity with these families,” said the statement.
