Kashmiris’ sacrifices not to be allowed go waste

Srinagar, June 08, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, has said that the Kashmiri martyrs have laid down their lives for freedom of their homeland from India and their sacrifices will not be allowed to go waste.

Shabbir Ahmed Shah along with APHC leader, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, and Hurriyet activists went to Littar area of Pulwama and expressed solidarity with the family of a youth, Sajjad Ahmed, who was recently martyred by Indian troops.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion, Shabbir Shah said that the martyrs’ sacrifices had centre-staged the Kashmir dispute and the international pressure was increasing on India to settle it for ensuring permanent peace in South Asia. He paid glowing tributes to Sajjad and other martyrs and maintained that their mission would be accomplished at all costs. Muhammad Yousuf Naqash also addressed the gathering.

Later, Indian police arrested Shabbir Shah and Yousuf Naqash when they left for Nowpora area of Pulwama to meet the family members of another martyred youth. They were lodged at Lassi Pora Police Station.

The veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, expressed serious concern over the implicating of an illegally detained Kashmiri youth, Fayyaz Ahmed Talaq, by Indian police in the recent attack on Sher Bagh Police Station in Islamabad town.

An APHC delegation comprising Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Musaddiq Aadil, Abdul Majeed Wani and Zulfiqar Hameed visited Hanjan and Pakharpora areas of Pulwama and condoled with the families of two youth, who were recently martyred by Indian troops.

An Indian trooper committed suicide by hanging himself in the staff quarters in the cantonment area of Srinagar while a police constable ended his life by shooting himself with his service rifle while on duty at the police post in Poonch District Hospital. These incidents raised the number of such deaths amongst Indian troops and police personnel in the occupied territory to 272 since January 2007.

Meanwhile, the APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has nominated Syed Yousuf Naseem as the Convener of the APHC-AJK chapter asking him to perform in that capacity Hurriyet’s political and diplomatic activities in Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir. A statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that the decision to this effect was taken unanimously during the recent meeting of the Executive Council of the Hurriyet Conference.
