Gaddafi's death a loss for Kashmir: Yasin Malik

23 October, 2011

SRINAGAR: A prominent pro-independence leader in Indian-held Kashmir (IHK), on Saturday, condemned the killing of Muammer Gaddafi, saying the fallen Libyan dictator had been a friend and supporter of Kashmiris.

Gaddafi berated Western powers for an hour and 35 minutes from the General Assembly podium in a speech covering issues as diverse as John F Kennedy's assassination, swine flu and his support for Kashmiri independence.

"Kashmir should be an independent state, not Indian, not Pakistani.
