Yasin arrested in Shopian
SRINAGAR, Jun 11: JKLF chairman Mohammed Yasin Malik, along with zonal president Noor Mohammed Kalwal, was arrested at Reban Shopian this morning.

JKLF chairman had gone to Reban to meet children of incarcerated Maulana Sarjan Barkati who is in jail despite several court orders to release him, said a statement.

Yasin early morning today reached Reban and visited the family of Barkati. He enquired about his children and expressed solidarity with them.

After meeting this victim family JKLF chairman was moving back towards Srinagar but as he stepped out of the house of Barkati , CRPF men along with police cordoned the whole area and arrested him along with Kalwal. They were shifted to police station Sangam.

While condemning this police “highhandedness in strong terms,” Yasin said he was only visiting a family whose only bread earner has been put behind bars by the largest democracy and who is not being released despite repeated court orders.

He said, “Maulana Sarjan Barkati is a religious preacher who along with other people participated in peaceful protests against killing spree but authorities are so afraid of his peaceful activities that they consider him a big threat. Despite repeated court orders to release him, he is not being released and hence he and his poor family are suffering at the hands of callous rulers.”

He said after meeting Barkati’s minor children and consoling them, he was moving back towards Srinagar he found himself besieged by police and CRPF men “who were posing as if they had to apprehend some armed rebel.”
