As Yasin Malik is sentenced to life imprisonment, Islamists pelt stones, clash with security forces in Srinagar

Srinagar (J&K) – An attempt was made to vitiate the atmosphere in Srinagar just before the separatist leader convicted terrorist Yasin Malik was sentenced in a Delhi NIA court on 25th May 2022. A clash broke out between Yasin Malik’s supporters and the Police in Srinagar’s Maisuma area. Yasin Malik’s supporters pelted stones at the security forces. The administration suspended internet services in Srinagar. The city was also closed after the stone-pelting incident; however, the violent protests intensified after Yasin Malik was awarded life imprisonment by the Court in terror funding charges. After the sentencing verdict was issued, Islamists came to the streets to register their protest against the sentence.

On 25th May, Kashmiri separatist Yasin Malik was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Special NIA court for terror funding activities in Jammu & Kashmir. The Court convicted him under UAPA on May 19. He had pleaded guilty in the case, admitting that he had been associated with terror funding activities in Jammu & Kashmir on 10th May. NIA had sought the death penalty for Malik.

Malik was in jail since 2019 as a part of the crackdown against the anti-India and secessionist elements in the Valley in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.

Editorial Viewpoint

  • Such terrorists should be sentenced to death, not given life imprisonment !
  • For how long will Hindus live in fear of such people in their own land ?
