JKLF leader Yasin Malik shares dais with Hafiz Saeed
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party lashed out the government and Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde over the news of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader Yasin Malik sharing dais with 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed in Islamabad.
Malik and some of his supporters observed a 24-hour token fast in protest of the execution of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and participated in a gathering to mourn his hanging, where Hafiz Saeed was also present. “It is required to know that what was he (Malik) celebrating with Hafiz Saeed after killing and mutilation of our soldiers along the border.
The government and the Home Minister must answer that why they are not taking proper action against these anti-national separatist leaders. Strong action must be taken against these people who, despite living in India, associated with the deferent terrorist organisations involved,” said BJP spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.
On the other hand, terming it a matter of great concern, Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said the concerned authority would certainly look into the matter.
