Chairman Hurriyat conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday expressed anguish over the arrest of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Muhammad Yasin Malik yesterday.

While condemning Yasin Malik’s arrest, Mirwaiz said no intimation can stop the pro-freedom leadership from speaking truth and serving the cause of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Strongly condemn the arbitrary arrest of Yasin sb by the authorities. No amount of intimidation can prevent leadership from speaking the truth and serving its cause in J&K. Neither will detaining youth& Hurriyat activists and raiding their homes stop them from supporting the cause,” Mirwaiz tweeted.

On Tuesday, police had detained Yasin Malik in Srinagar to prevent him from carrying out an election boycott campaign.
