Over the charges against Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik, Pakistan summoned India’s envoy in Islamabad.

The Indian Charge d’Affaires was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and handed over a demarche conveying Pakistan’s strong condemnation of the framing of fabricated charges against Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yasin Malik, according to a statement released by the Pakistan government on Wednesday.

Moreover, on May 10, Yasin Malik, who is currently detained in Tihar, pled guilty to all charges, including those brought under the strict Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

In 2017, the lawsuit involves suspected terrorist and secessionist operations in the Kashmir valley.

Meanwhile, the charges against Yasin Malik, according to the Pakistani government, are “fabricated.”

Pakistan has also expressed concern about Yasin Malik’s detention in Tihar Jail since January 2019, claiming that he has been held in “inhumane conditions.” 

“The barbaric treatment meted out to him despite his chronic ailments and denial of proper health care facilities has resulted in the severe decline of his health,” the Pakistan government claimed.

“Pakistan urges the Government of India to acquit Mr. Malik of all unfounded allegations and release him from prison immediately so that he can be reunited with his family, recover his health, and return to normal life,” the Pakistan foreign ministry said in a statement.

Pakistan also asked the international community, particularly the UN and relevant human rights and humanitarian organizations, to take quick action.

Yasin Malik, the chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), has been charged under the UAPA’s Sections 18 (conspiracy to commit a terrorist act) and 20 (membership of a terrorist gang or organization), as well as the Indian Penal Code’s Sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and 124-A (sedition).

Separatist leader Malik allegedly told the court on May 10 that he was not disputing the allegations brought against him, including section 16 (terrorist act) and section 17 (criminal conspiracy) (raising funds for terrorist acts).

The court will hear the matter again on May 19 and decide the quantum of sentence leveled against Malik.
