No place for Kashmiris in Delhi, says Yasin Malik, thrown out of hotel

Yasin Malik
New Delhi, Dec 3: Amid the controversy over Article 370, separatist group Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Monday, Dec 2 claimed that its chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik along with his family have been thrown out of a hotel in Delhi.

JKLF, in a statement, chided its chairman and his family members including his 18-month-old baby were forced to spend several hours on road after they were forced to leave the hotel booked by them.

Malik, accompanied by his family, went to Delhi on Sunday and booked two rooms in a hotel near Nizam-ud-din, the JKLF said in a statement.

However, they were asked to leave around midnight by the hotel management, the group alleged. JKLF spokesperson, expressing his disappointment, said, "If Delhi gets upset due to our presence there, it should formally introduce a law that could prevent the people of Kashmir from visiting the national capital."

"Only due to the person's political ideology, he was thrown out of the hotel along with his family. Such action cannot be legitimised at any level," the statement added.

JKLF's statement surfaced just hours after Narendra Modi's demand for a debate in Parliament over article 370. Modi's statement created a new controversy in the country. Article 370 of the Indian constitution is a law that grants special autonomous status to Jammu and Kashmir.
