ISLAMABAD: After the Judicial Commission probing the Memogate granted his request, Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Yasin Malik arrived in Islamabad on Saturday to clarify Mansoor Ijaz’s statements regarding him.

In response to Mansoor Ijaz’s allegations, that Malik had arranged his meeting with Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) chief, the JKLF chief had requested the Supreme Court on March 17 that he should be allowed to become a party before the commission. The Commission subsequently granted his request..

Talking to the media outside the Benazir Bhutto International Airport (BBIA), Malik said that “people will learn the truth on Monday.”

“People want to listen to the truth, and I will inform them of the facts about the allegation which Mansoor has levelled against me” he added

Responding to a question, he said that JKLF is a responsible party and some forces wants to defame it.

Earlier during cross-examination before the commission, Ijaz, the whistleblower of the Memogate scandal, had stated that Malik, at the insistence of the US government, had met then chief of India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

Mushaal Malik on behalf of her husband, had filed an application last week stating that her husband wished to clarify allegations levelled against him by Mansoor Ijaz.

    Yasin Malik should bless his soul that he lives in a democratic India that permits him to tarvel where he desires. Had he been in Pakistan he would be either in jail or would have disappeared by now.

    If Pakistan relies on what Yasin Malik says, it will be in big trouble. This is a game of public posturing and scoring points. In a clash of giant Institutions pygmies will also want to take a free ride.

    Along with the Pak establishment’s stories, JKLF’s stories are also going to be washed in in the public now

    Good or bad, India allows even the most virulent anti-India seperatists from the cummunal Geelani to Yasin malik , full freedom to travel and organize and express their political views. Many of these leaders like geelani , continue to receive government pensions and free medical care at state expense while they take money from the same people who financed Ghulam Fai .
    Even USA would not allow that kind of freedom to anti-state elements and would have prosecuted guys like Geelani and Malik for receiving undisclosed funds from foreign sources.

    These efforts are being made by some people who don’t want unity among the kashmiri leadership including leaders 4m across.But we hope that Mr.Malik will clear it and will not allow such powers to defame the leaders and their struggle as such.

    Yasin Malik lives in India, therefore he is an Indian. So, as an Indian, he can visit the RAW chief whenever he wants, he can become the RAW chief if he wants. Why should a Pakistani be worried about it or make it a issue??
    He had issues with the govt of India’s way of dealing in Kashmir, fair enough. He has learnt to protest it without violence now because he has discovered that India is not going to budge to extremism, terrorism and violence.

    Can Pakistani establishment and the activist judges throw JKLF and its head under the bus only to support a man like Mansoor? So much for the support of Kashmiri and their cause. When our interest is big they can sacrifice JKLF. This should be a real eye opener for the residents of Kashmir.
