Police arrests JKLF chief Yasin Malik


The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday arrested Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Yasin Malik soon after he was coming back from a meeting of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) at Syed Ali Geelani’s Hyderpora residence.

“On one hand, Delhi and its supporters here announce ceasefire and state that let people observe Ramadhan peacefully, and on the other resistance leaders are being arrested on the very first day of Ramadhan,” Malik told reporters before being taken away by police.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
