Did not authorize the formation of ‘Joint Resistance Centre’ in UK, says JRL

The Joint Resistance Leadership in a statement has said that they are not associated with a ‘Joint Resistance Centre (JRC) in UK which has claimed to be a reflection of the JRL in Kashmir.

In a statement JRL, while distancing itself from the centre said, ” We have neither authorized anybody to form this Centre nor do we know anything about it. While we appreciate the role of the Kashmiri diaspora and believe Kashmiris living in any part of the world should act as ambassadors for the Kashmir cause and should be concerned about the happenings in their homeland, but making any forum and attributing it to the leadership without any prior consent or information creates confusion and misunderstanding.”

JRL said that Kashmiri diasporas is active at their respective places for long period and we wish they all unite by their hearts and minds to put a collective flight against the oppressor at the diplomatic front.

“But it needs a common and collective efforts by everybody after proper deliberations and consent by the leadership on ground,” the statement added.

The leadership, in the statement also strongly condemned the inhuman treatment meted out to the political prisoners from Kashmir lodged in Kathua jail stating that many inmates lodged there have been severely thrashed by the jail authorities which is not only unacceptable but against the basic principles of humanity.

The Leadership said that many ploys are being employed to prolong the detention period of Kashmiri prisoners as they are not even produced before the respective courts on their fixed dates of hearing which is nothing but sheer vendetta.

The JRL said that despite clear-cut directions from the Indian Supreme Court that prisoners be lodged in jails closer to their homes, dozens of Kashmiri prisoners were shifted outside the State and are lodged in various parts of India where they are facing extreme suppression in terms of absence of all the basic facilities guaranteed by the jail manuals.
