Srinagar: The fire raging from Afzal Guru’s clemency plea refuses to die down. Criticising the dramatical delaying of Afzal Guru’s clemency plea in the Jammu & Kashmir Assembly, separatist group Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front leader Mohammad Yasin Malik pinned blames on the BJP, Congress and PDP.

He said, “The whole game has been a mind work of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Congress and the PDP. The people of this state are not stupid, they were aware that this was about to come.”

Addressing reporters on Thursday, Malik said, “The same situation had prevailed during the issue of death penalty to Maqbool Bhat. The drama had continued until he reached the gallows.”

He warned that such a drama will not be allowed in the future and if the clemency plea of Afzal Guru is rejected and he is hanged, it will be followed by lethal consequences.

He added that there must be a debate on his clemency plea and if it is not done he will raise voice against it.
Malik announced that a demonstration would be carried out on Friday against the delaying of Afzal Guru’s clemency plea.
