Srinagar, Aug 11 (Only Kashmir): The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (M) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while paying rich tributes to prominent APHC leader, Shaikh Abdul Aziz on his third martyrdom anniversary, today, has vowed to continue Kashmiri martyrs’ mission till it reaches its logical conclusion.
The APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, Bilal Ghani Lone and Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi, while addressing a seminar in Srinagar at party headquarters said that India had failed to suppress Kashmris’ liberation Movement through its state terrorism and would never be able to frighten the Kashmiri people into submission. Others who spoke on the occasion included Bashir Ahmad Butt, Hakim Abdul Rashid and Muhammad Yousuf Naqash.
The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement held a seminar in Jammu on the occasion. The Chairman of Peoples League, Shaikh Muhammad Yaqoob in his telephonic address from Muzaffarabad to his party workers in Srinagar maintained that the services of Shaikh Abdul Aziz for the Kashmir cause would always remain unforgettable.
The authorities arrested senior APHC leader Shabbir Ahmad Shah and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza and placed veteran Kashmiri Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Gilani, Nayeem Ahmad Khan and Zafar Akbar Butt under house arrest in Srinagar to prevent them from addressing the functions, which were organised to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Shaikh Abdul Aziz. The Indian police had imposed restrictions around the martyrs’ graveyard at Eidgah in Srinagar to stop people from gathering at the grave of the martyred leader.
The APHC, AJK Chapter, in a prayers meeting at its office in Islamabad, today, offered Fateha for Shaikh Abdul Aziz and other Kashmiri martyrs.
It was on this day in 2008 that Shaikh Abdul Aziz was shot dead by Indian troops while he was leading a procession from Srinagar to the Line of Control against the economic blockade of the Kashmir valley by Hindu extremists of Jammu.
