Malik suffering from acute eye infection, is being denied appropriate medical attention in Tihar Jail: JKLF Spokesperson

Srinagar: Incarcerated Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Yasin Malik has been suffering from an acute eye infection from the last two weeks due to the negligence of the medical team of Tihar Jail, said the spokesperson of JKLF Mohammad Rafiq Dar.

He expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health condition of Malik.

” Yasin Malik is suffering from an acute infection in one of his eyes from the last two weeks. We condemn the attitude of jail authorities including its medical team due to the negligence of whom his health condition is falling down day by day.

According to the spokesman, Malik is not being provided with the appropriate medical facilities in the jail which is his due right.

Warning the Indian authorities of dire consequences if this ill-treatment continues, Dar asked the party leadership, spread all over the world, to show patience and wait for the party high command directives for any protests against Modi and his government for the callous and inhuman attitude towards the freedom loving Kashmiris in Indian jails.

“JKLF has the capacity to launch a political campaign all over the world against India for their repressive policies in Jammu Kashmir, he added.

The spokesman said that the news of Malik’s condition has been a severe cause of concern for not only his family members but for party cadres and the millions of people of the state too who love and follow him.

“In order to save Yasin Malik life, we appeal international and local human rights organizations like UNHRC, Amnesty International, Asia Watch and human rights defenders to take notice of his health condition and impress upon India to provide the basic human rights of a politically jailed leader like Yasin Malik.”
