Srinagar, Dec 2 (IBNS): Police detained Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik after he, along with his supporters, tried to march towards Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Friday.

Malik, along with his supporters, were detained near Maisuma as he and others tried to take out a protest march towards Lal Chowk after Friday prayers, a police official said.

Before police arrested him, he addressed a gathering and said that call for protest against prolonged incarceration of thousands of Kashmiris has been given by the joint Resistance leadership and to stop this peaceful protest whole of Lal  Chowk, especially Maisuma and adjacent areas, have been turned into a big prison.

He said that stopping people from holding peaceful protests against oppressive measures and against caging down thousands of young and
old, clerics, scholars and students and even women is no democracy.

He said if rulers and their authorities think that by intimidating people they can crush 'our resolve for freedom then they have mistaken as we will keep striving for freedom even if we are alone'.

Later, Malik was taken to police station Kothi Bagh.
