Washington: Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai, Secretary General, World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF) appealed the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to press India to release Muhammad Yasin Malik, Chairman, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) and drop all its trumped-up charges against political prisoners and All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) leadership.
WKAF joins the people of Jammu and Kashmir and all political and civic organizations across the globe in demanding that the Indian government must ensure the safety of the entire Kashmiri leadership, including Yasin Malik, Syed Ali Geelani, Zafar Akbar Bhat and others.
Chairman Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement Zafar Akbar Bhat health was also deteriorated because of prolonged Indian illegal detention, and he was shifted to hospital from Police Station Chana Pora a few days ago.
Further, WKAF demands that the United Nations mediate with the Government of India to allow Geneva-based International Commission of Jurists and a delegation of Kashmiri American diaspora to travel to New Delhi to meet with Mr. Malik at an early date personally.
Noting that the people of Jammu & Kashmir demand an unfettered right to self-determination guaranteed under the United Nations Security Council Resolutions, WKAF underscores the urgent need for India to fulfill the pledges to the Kashmiri nation, made by the Indian leaders since 1947.
