J&K: Yasin Malik detained ahead of separatists march

Although the official did not cite any reason for Malik's detention, it is believed to be part of the government strategy to foil the separatists march to Jamia Masjid.

Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik was on Thursday taken into preventive custody ahead of the separatists call for march to Jamia Masjid in the evening. Malik was taken into custody by a police party from his Maisuma residence this afternoon, a police official said.

Although the official did not cite any reason for Malik’s detention, it is believed to be part of the government strategy to foil the separatists march to Jamia Masjid. The separatist leadership — which includes Malik and chairmen of both factions of Hurriyat Conference — have asked people to march to Jamia Masjid in old city after 6 PM. They have plans of holding a congregation at the historic mosque on Friday after the prayers.

Jamia Masjid has been sealed since killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8. No Friday prayers have been offered at the Mosque since then.
