ISLAMABAD: At a joint Kashmiri and Sikh protest in front of the Indian Consulate General in Chicago, US vehemently denounced the unjust life sentence given to Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik by an Indian court. A large number of people belonging to Kashmiri and Sikh communities, carrying placards and banners, shouted slogans against the Indian government’s shabby tactics and genocide of minorities. The speakers, on the occasion, said that Yasin’s only crime was that he had been fighting for the just cause of freedom of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and for the freedom of his people.
