YLife imprisonment to Malik unfortunate, setback to peace efforts: PAGD

Srinagar, May 25: Peoples’ Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) on Wednesday said that life imprisonment given to Yaseen Malik is unfortunate and a setback to the efforts for peace.

We are afraid that this will further compound the uncertainties in the region and will only fuel more alienation and separatist feelings, PAGD spokesman said in a statement issued to media.

NIA Court has delivered its verdict but not justice, PAGD said, adding that the triumphalism being displayed by the BJP and the corporate media is bound to prove counterproductive.

“Meanwhile, we suggest that Yaseen Malik should avail all legal opportunities to contest this verdict,” PAGD said.
