In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Imtiyaz Ahmed Reshi, Ghulam Nabi War and Ghulam Nabi Waseem have paid glowing tribute to martyred popular youth leader, Burhan Wani, on the eve of his second martyrdom anniversary.
Indian troops had killed Burhan Wani along with his two associates in a fake encounter in Kokernag area of Islamabad district on July 08, 2016. Burhan Wani’s cold-blooded murder had triggered the ongoing mass uprising in the occupied territory.
Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Imtiyaz Ahmed Reshi, Ghulam Nabi War and Ghulam Nabi Waseem in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said that fateha khawni will be held on July 8 (Sunday) to commemorate 2nd martyrdom anniversary of Burhan Wani and 126 other people martyred by the Indian troops during mass uprising in 2016.
They said that martyrdom of Burhan Wani was another golden page in the history of the ongoing freedom movement. They denounced the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, for his recent statement and said that Kashmir was neither an issue of development or administration nor it could be resolved through military might. They said that the Kashmir dispute pertained to the future of millions of Kashmiris and it could only be resolved by giving them their inalienable right to self-determination.—KMS
