In occupied Kashmir, the General Secretary of All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC), Shabbir Ahmad Shah has paid tributes to martyrs Ishfaq Majeed Wani, Advocate Jaleel Andrabi, Dr Abdul Ahad Guru and Shabbir Siddiqui.
Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Shaheed Ishfaq Majeed Wani in his brief lifetime made the whole Kashmir rise against the Indian forcible occupation and became inspiration for thousands in no time. He is the hero of our freedom movement whose sacrifices are invaluable. History will always remember him.”
Paying tributes to Advocate Jaleel Andrabi, he said, “Indian rulers are responsible for his killing. He was martyred in army custody and Indian rulers instead of bringing the culprit Colonel Avtar to book left no stone unturned to protect him. Shaheed Andrabi was an intellectual and a great personality who had dedicated his life for highlighting the human rights violations perpetrated by Indian occupational forces in Kashmir.”
Shabbir Shah said Shaheed Dr Abdul Ahad Guru, apart from being a renowned doctor was a hero of freedom movement and ultimately sacrificed his life for the noble and great cause.
“Shabbir Siddiqi belonged to a religious family and he will always be remembered for his contribution to Islam and Kashmir’s freedom struggle,” he said.
Remembering all the martyrs of Kashmir, Shabbir Ahmad Shah said Kashmiris are committed to the martyrs’ mission which will be accomplished at any cost. “We are indebted to the sacrifices of our lakhs of martyrs and we will never succumb to the oppressive and suppressive policies of India and its occupational forces,” he maintained.
He said that the best way to pay tribute to the martyrs was to completely boycott the parliamentary elections to send a clear message to the world that killers and tyrants could not be representatives of Kashmiris.—KMS
