Tributes paid to victims of 8th October earthquake



In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, the Chairman of International Forum for Justice and Human Rights, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, and Tehreeq-e-Istiqlal Chairman, Ghulam Nabi Waseem, have paid glowing tributes to the victims of the devastating earthquake of 8th October 2005.
Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo and Ghulam Nabi Waseem in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said the 8th October will always be remembered with moist eyes and heavy heart as on this date more than seventy thousand precious lives were lost and property worth trillions of rupees was destroyed. The day seemed to be the end of the world as the death and destruction in the territories of Azad Kashmir and Indian illegally occupied Jammu Kashmir was beyond the human imagination, they added.
“The day reminds us the horrors of great human tragedies which the world has witnessed since its inception.—KMS
