Convicting Yasin Malik on fake terrorism charges highly condemnable: PM Shehbaz


Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday urged the world to take note of Indian government’s mistreatment of political prisoners in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

In a tweet on Monday, the Prime Minister said Kashmiri freedom leader Yasin Malik’s conviction by Indian court in fake terrorism case is highly condemnable and termed it as a “futile effort to silence voices critical of India’s blatant human rights abuses”. He said Modi regime must be held to account.

Meanwhile, in another statement, the Prime Minister has strongly condemned Indian government for its act of involving prominent Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yasin Malik in a fake terrorism case.

He rejected Indian tactics against Yasin Malik, who is a symbol of unparalleled bravery and freedom.

The Prime Minister pledged that the government of Pakistan will raise the issue of revengeful acts against Yasin Malik and other Kashmiri leadership at all international human rights forums and the OIC.

He said India has been pursuing a deliberate plan to remove the real Kashmiri leadership from the scene.
