Apni Party, BJP support NIA’s plea to seek death penalty for Yasin Malik; PDP, PC oppose

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 27: The decision of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to approach the Delhi High Court to convert to life imprisonment of banned JKLF chairman Yasin Malik into a death sentence has triggered a debate among political parties of the J&K.
Apni Party president Altaf Bukhari on Saturday said deterrent measures should be taken against those who are trying to threaten national security.
“NIA’s plea demanding the death penalty for Yasin Malik highlights the urgency to address militant funding in Jammu and Kashmir. We must ensure justice prevails and deterrent measures should be taken against those who are trying to threaten our nation’s security,” Bukhari said.
Wasting no time in attacking Altaf Bukhari for defending the plea of the NIA, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti dubbed Bukhari as a “political Ikhwan”. She hailed convicted jailed JKLF chairman Yasin Malik as a “political prisoner”.
“In a democracy like India where even the assassins of a Prime Minister were pardoned, the case of a political prisoner like Yasin Malik must be reviewed and reconsidered. The new political Ikhwan gleefully supporting his hanging are a grave threat to our collective rights”, Mehbooba tweeted while tagging the statement of Altaf Bukhari.
Joining the debate, Peoples’ Conference chairman Sajad Lone observed that NIA’s plea on Yasin Malik was dangerous.
“It is a humble plea. Let you not be misled by fair-weather Kashmir experts. Please - every situation has a short term and a long term. Let the short-term enforced calm not blind you to the possible long-term turbulence”, he tweeted.
“And May I very humbly ask what about those who created Yasin? What about those who rigged elections held under the Indian constitution and jailed, political workers, tortured them, and tortured their families?”, he asked, adding, “And didn’t rest until they ensured that they push them to the wall — to the extent where they pick up arms. I don’t condone taking up arms. But can’t we condemn those who forced arms onto a young person?”
“Are those rigged 1987 elections and in the process created hundreds and thousands of Yasin immune to prosecution? Are those who filled graveyards post-1987 outside the ambit of the law? Is it always the poor man’s son who has to face the law, who has to face the gallows”, he further asked.
Meanwhile, the former Dy CM and BJP leader Kavinder Gupta also lauded the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for seeking a death sentence for the terrorist Yasin Malik who carried a tirade of anti India activities. He said that Yasin Malik was involved in multiple killings of security forces including the Air Force personnel, members of a miniscule minority community in Kashmir, sending Kashmiri youth for terrorist training to Pakistan and last but not least arranging the funding for terrorist strikes in India.
He asserted that Yasin Malik is the main culprit who brought huge miseries to the innocent people of Kashmir by misleading the youth and encouraging them to join separatist and terror cadres against India. He endorsed NIA’s initiative saying that such offenders deserve only and only death sentences.
