In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations while denouncing stepped-up Indian state terrorism have paid glowing tributes to the martyred mujhaid commander, Dr Saifullah.
Dr Saifullah was killed by Indian troops during a cordon and search operation in Rangreth area on the outskirts of Srinagar, yesterday.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference while paying rich tributes to Dr. Saifullah in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that the Kashmiris were indebted to huge and sacred sacrifices of their beloved and revered martyrs.
The APHC spokesman added that despite limited resources the Kashkmiri youth were fighting the war of liberation with a mighty and cunning adversary and were sacrificing their precious lives for the cause of Islam and freedom. “The real tribute to our brave sons of soil would be our pledge to continue our struggle with utmost honesty and dedication,” the spokesman said. He offered deep condolences with the family of Dr. Saifullah.
Senior Hurriyat leader Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori in a statement issued in Srinagar while paying tributes to Dr. Saifullah said that the Indian Army had crossed all limits of oppression and highly educated Kashmiri youth were being forced to take extreme step to justify their killing. He condemned the arrest of people who went to the house of the martyr commander for condolences and said that Kashmiris were being punished for their deep love for their heroes and freedom.
A delegation led by Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori managed to reach the residence of Dr. Saifullah to express solidarity with the bereaved family.
Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Chairman Shabbir Ahmed Dar said Dr Saifullah was a great son of soil whose priceless contribution to the freedom movement would never be forgotten. His absence will be felt in the rank and file of mujahiden and freedom lovers, he added. “The greatest tribute to this fearless commander will be to carry forward his mission i.e. complete freedom from India.
Tehreek-e-Muzahamat Chairman Bilal Ahmed Sidiqui in a statement issued in Srinagar said red hot blood of martyrs would never go in vain. Reacting to the mass destruction of property, loot and arson in Rengreth, he said it was an act of cowardice and a deliberate move to inflict collective punishment on the freedom-loving people of IIOJK.
In a statement Abdul Samad Inqilabi, Chairman, Islami Tanzeem-e-Azadi, said that despite being highly educated, Dr Saifullah took the path of greatness and sacrificed his life for the freedom of Jammu and Kashmir from Indian rule.
