Lahore: I am afraid the Indians will kill my father, my family. They want to kill him because they want to take Kashmir but Kashmiris will never give it up. I am sad but I am just not crying. My dad never cried so I never cried about it I want to talk about it.
These words were uttered by the brave Razia Sultana, the seven-year-old daughter of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Yasin Mullick. He is said to be seriously ill and has been shifted to a hospital in New Delhi for treatment. Sultan came all the way to Lahore from Islamabad with her motherMushaal Hussein Mullick, who demanded immediate release of her husband from the illegal confinement of the Indian government. Daily The Business had an opportunity to interview her.
Following are excerpts:
