ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday condemned the torture faced by Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik, saying that India’s fascist Modi regime continues to torture Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik in Tihar jail, forcing him to go on hunger strike.
Taking to Twitter, the former prime minister urged the international organizations of human rights to save the life of Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik.
“I call on UNSG, UNHCHR &international human rights orgs to take action against India & save Yasin Malik’s life”, said Imran.
Imran expressed dismay over the Indian government’s callous attitude towards Yasin, saying that the life of the Kashmiri leader is in extreme danger.
Pakistan on Thursday strongly condemned India for implicating Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik in two more “three decades old fictitious cases in a clear attempt to politically victimize him and forcing him to observe hunger strike unto death”. Mr. Yasin Malik is already serving out a life-sentence awarded to him after a sham trial by an Indian court on May 25, 2022.
In a statement, the Foreign Office said Malik was already serving a life sentence awarded to him after a “sham trial” by an Indian court on May 25, 2022.
“Yasin Malik is also being denied the right of personal appearance in the ongoing trial, in complete contravention of legal and democratic norms,” the FO regretted.
