Srinagar, Kashmir: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik today refuted allegations of snatching an Indian Army boat meant for relief work in flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir. The allegations against Malik were leveled by certain sections of the Indian media.
Referring to a video, in which Malik told Army officials that people of Kashmir did not want Army to enter Kashmir, Indian Media yesterday accused Yasin Malik of snatching the boat.
Yasin Malik today termed the reports on him disrupting the relief and rescue work as just a poisonous propaganda by the Indian media.
“Malik reportedly said that if charges against him are proven true, he will quit Kashmiri politics” reads a news reported by Punjab Time Line (PTL).
The pro-freedom leader also went on to accuse the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) of not distributing relief material, claiming people are facing shortages.
Media reports had earlier claimed that Yasin Malik was in a September 13 video seen disrupting relief and rescue operations in a flood-hit area.
An Indian News channel reported the JKLF chief and his aides hijacking a rescue boat in order to ‘personally’ distribute relief items.
Yasin Malik and his supporters were seen in a video – available on social media as well as broadcast by an English news channel – asking relief workers to abandon a boat so that they could carry out the rescue operation themselves.
