Speakers Commemorate Raja Haider Khan, Honoring His Role in Kashmiri Resistance

Muzaffarabad, Various functions were held in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, to commemorate the 58th death anniversary of Raja Muhammad Haider Khan, a key figure in the resistance against the Dogra rule and a prominent leader in the struggle for the rights of Kashmiri Muslims. The events paid tribute to Raja Haider Khan and other heroes who fought for the just cause of Kashmir following the partition of India.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Raja Haider Khan played a crucial role in leading the resistance movement against the Hindu Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir. Before the partition, he spearheaded the anti-Dogra struggle in Muzaffarabad and surrounding areas. In 1947, during the war for Kashmir’s liberation, he actively organized freedom activities and successfully compelled the Dogra forces to abandon these areas.

The commemorative functions were organized by the Jammu Kashmir Peace and Justice (JKPJ) organization and other groups at various locations in Muzaffarabad. The speakers highlighted Raja Haider Khan’s contributions and his vision for uniting the Kashmiris in their struggle for freedom and self-determination.

Tanveer ul Islam, Chairman of JKPJ, noted that Raja Haider Khan was instrumental in the resistance against the Dogra rule and the broader fight for the rights of the Kashmiri people. The other speakers emphasized that Raja Haider Khan’s efforts were centered on the right to self-determination for Kashmiris and his commitment to the welfare of the people in the occupied territory.

The speakers urged that it is the responsibility of the current generation to continue the mission of these great leaders and to support the Kashmiri people’s quest for their inalienable right to self-determination. They also reiterated the need to raise awareness about the ongoing struggle in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The commemoration of Raja Haider Khan’s legacy serves as a reminder of the enduring resistance against oppression and the continued pursuit of freedom for the people of Kashmir.
