Srinagar: Claiming that he possesses information about the Memo Gate scandal, which could help resolve the political crisis in Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Yasin Malik will travel to Pakistan on Saturday to depose before the Special Commission, constituted by the Supreme Court of the neighbouring country.
“I know so many things. If I am provided an opportunity to appear before the court, my statement will reveal the truth for which people in the whole subcontinent are waiting,” Pakistani daily The Nation quoted Malik as saying.
Mushaal Malik, the wife of the JKLF chairman, has earlier submitted an application to the memo commission that his husband should be allowed before the panel to enable him reply to the allegations levelled against him by Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz.
Ijaz had claimed Malik had met a senior RAW official at the behest of intelligence agencies of the United States.
The JKLF leader denied having ever met any of the RAW officials and said if the allegation was proved, he would retire from public life.
The appearance of Yasin’s name in the controversy has now also included a Kashmir perspective in the issue.
Yasin, through his lawyer Zafar Shah has asked Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry in a four-page application that his appearance before the memo commission will give a meaningful help in resolving the matter. The application says Ijaz has tried to defame Yasin earlier as well, while sources say they had also exchanged harsh words ten years back.
“Malik will be leaving for Pakistan on Saturday after he was asked by the Commission to submit his application in person,” a JKLF spokesman said here today.
Malik obtained visa from the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi today, the spokesman said.
