Yasin Malik’s passport may be revoked after enquiry

JKLF chief Yasin Malik’s passport is likely to be revoked by the government after he shared the stage with Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed in Pakistan while protesting against Afzal Guru’s execution.

Security agencies will interrogate the JKLF leader, who is on a visit to Pakistan, when he returns to India, top officials said here on Tuesday, making it very clear that Malik’s hobnobbing with Saeed and indulging in political activities against India in Pakistan have not gone down well with the government.

Malik will be subjected to detailed questioning about his activities in the neighbouring country including his meeting with Saeed and other leaders who are inimical to India’s interests.

‘We are conducting a thorough enquiry. When the report will come, we will take appropriate action against him (Malik),’ Minister of State for Home RPN Singh said.

Ministry of External Affairs also said ‘careful and prompt action’ will be taken if the Home Ministry requests it for revoking or impounding Malik’s passport. Malik and other Kashmiri separatist leaders are normally given limited validity passport.
