In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference while paying rich tributes to the prominent martyred Kashmiri leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz, on his 14th martyrdom anniversary, Thursday, reaffirmed the Kashmiris’ resolve to accomplish the mission of their martyrs at all costs.
Indian troops had martyred Sheikh Abdul Aziz on this day in 2008 when he was leading a big march from Srinagar to the Line of Control against the economic blockade of the Kashmir Valley by Hindu extremists of Jammu.
Illegally detained APHC Vice Chairman, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, in a special message from Srinagar Central Jail said Sheikh Abdul Aziz will always be remembered as a great hero in the history of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that Sheikh Aziz was a visionary political leader who faced bullets on his chest rather than to succumb or surrender before the Indian military might.
The APHC General Secretary, Molvi Bashir Ahmad Irfani, and Ittehad-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir in their statements in Srinagar said that contribution, services and the sacrifices of Sheikh Abdul Aziz for the ongoing freedom movement would always be remembered.
The APHC-AJK chapter held a rally in Muzaffarabad, today, to pay homage to Sheikh Abdul Aziz. Holding banners with pictures of Sheikh Aziz, the participants of the rally raised high-pitched slogans in favour of the Kashmiri martyrs and against India.
Meanwhile, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism, today, martyred two more Kashmiri youth in IIOJK. The fresh killings in Pargal area of Rajouri district in Jammu region raised the number of slain youth in the territory to five in last two days. The troops martyred three youth during a violent cordon and search operation in Waterhail area of Badgam district, yesterday. Indian Army claimed that three soldiers were killed and several others were injured in an attack on an Army camp in Pargal.
Kashmir watchers, political experts and analysts have said that the attack on the Army camp in Pargal could be another false flag operation by Modi government to malign the Kashmir freedom movement and Pakistan. They said the fresh incident just ahead of Indian Independence Day celebrations seems to be another orchestrated drama for multiple purposes by the Hindutva-driven Modi regime including getting Pakistan on Financial Action Task Force blacklist.
On the other hand, Hindutva goons attacked and critically injured two Muslim youth during a Muharram procession in Mallasamudra area of Gadag district of the Indian state of Karnataka. The injured youth were identified as Tausif Hosmani and Mushtaq Hosmani.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu Kashmir (APHC-AJK) chapter has said that martyred leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz was a true soldier of Kashmiris’ freedom struggle who preferred martyrdom but never bowed before Indian military might.
The APHC-AJK chapter Convener, Mehmood Ahmad Saghar, in a statement, on the 14th martyrdom anniversary of Sheikh Abdul Aziz, while recalling his contributions towards the Kashmir freedom struggle, said that he always strived for the freedom of Jammu and Kashmir from Indian illegal occupation and lived and died for the sacred cause of freedom.
He said the martyred leader dedicated his whole life for the cause and worked tirelessly for making the resistance movement a success at gross root level on multiple dimensions.—KMS
