The Case for Yasin Malik

The tragic story of Kashmir is epitomized in the struggles of its beloved son, Yasin Malik, one of the most iconic leaders of Kashmir’s independence struggle. The twists and turns of the political conditions in Kashmir are reflected in the wounds and scars the Indian state has left on Yasin’s body over the past 37 years. Today, India has inflicted the cruelest one so far, sentencing him to a life in prison.

“If seeking Azadi (freedom) is a crime, then I am ready to accept this crime and its consequences”, says Malik.

On the 25th of May 2022, the Indian court passed its sentence of life in prison.

As Kashmiris, we must remain vigilant. It is our duty to inform the world and to put pressure on the Indian government to release Yasin and all other Kashmiri political prisoners. We must not forget those who have given their entire lives to the cause of our freedom.
