JKLF Requests Govt To Remove Hurdles, Warns Of Sit-In If Not Allowed To March To LoC
The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has requested the government of Azad Jammu and Kashmir to remove the containers present at the Muzaffarabad-Srinagar Highway.
According to a report in Dawn, JKLF protesters have said that the containers are hindering their march towards the Line of Control. They have also warned that they would stage a sit-in before the containers for ‘an indefinite period’.
JKLF’s Central Spokesperson Rafiq Dar stated to media that the hurdles should be removed by the government so that marchers could cross the ceasefire line.
Reportedly, the administration has placed containers, barbed wires, electricity poles and earth to block the protesters.
Dar further stated, “Otherwise, the government should bring here any special representative of the United Nations Secretary General as well as representatives of the five permanent UN Security Council members so that we are able to give them our charter of demands.”
Dar said that they couldn’t lead a normal life if their ‘brothers and sisters’ across the LoC were suffering at the hands of the Indian Army.
The spokesperson also stated that the best option available in the current scenario was the deployment of United Nations peacekeeping forces in Jammu and Kashmir until a plebiscite was held to find out what the Kashmiri people desired.
On Saturday, JKLF had rejected Prime Minister Imran Khan’s request to the group asking them not to cross the LoC.
