Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik today said the supreme sacrifice of Imam- I-Hussain (RA) and his family at Karbala is a glorious page of Islamic history that will always remain a source of inspiration for all those who stand against tyranny and oppression.
“The resistance of the people of Jammu Kashmir is also a continuation of battle of Karbala. No election till right to self-determination shall be our guiding principle,” a spokesman of the JKLF, in a statement today, quoted Muhammad Yasin Malik as having said while addressing a Hussaini Majlis at Kathi Darwaza here today.
Yasin Malik said, “The battle of Karbala marks a distinction between truth and falsehood and makes us to recall that in the continuing struggle between truth and false, the last victory always belong to the truth.”
“Despite all hardships true follower of Imam-I-Hussain (RA) should never bow before tyrants and should never ever side with those who are oppressing fellow humans. Imam-I-Aali Muqam had two roads ahead of him. One was to compromise and accept the hegemony of falsehood and save his life and the other way was to remain steadfast, challenge the deceit and sacrifice his head and his sacred family. Imam (RA) chose the way of resistance, sacrificed his life and his family and thus became a symbol of resistance and truth for all times and generations to come” Malik said.
“Jammu Kashmir is burning and we are receiving the corpses of our young ones on daily basis but the ruling regime just to satisfy its masters in Delhi has announced the schedule for so-called Municipal and Panchayat Elections,” he added. The Front chairman said, “People of Kashmir have resolved and agreed to a slogan and motive that no election till we achieve right to self-determination and I appeal to every Kashmiri to remember and act according to this slogan and motive and stay away from so-called elections and give a message to the world that Kashmiri will not shy away from any sacrifice for attaining their right to self-determination.
