Srinagar, November 21 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has paid glowing tributes to six youth, martyred by Indian troops in Hajin area of Bandipora.
According to media sources, the forum in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the sacrifices of the Kashmiri martyrs would not be allowed to go waste and their mission would be accomplished at all costs.
A delegation of the forum on the instructions of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq visited the residence of a martyred youth Mughees Ahmed Mir at Parimpora in Srinagar and expressed sympathy with his family members. On the occasion, Mirwaiz spoke to the father of Mughees over phone and expressed his condolence with him. Meanwhile, a spokesman of the forum in a statement issued in Srinagar strongly condemned the frequent house detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. He expressed concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained Hurriyat leaders including Shabbir Ahmed Shah lodged in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail. He said, “It is a political vendetta, which is taking a serious toll on the health of all the leaders lodged in Tihar Jail.” The statement said, “Kashmir’s resistance leaders, under a well thought out plan, are being subjected to political vendetta.” “Besides Shabbir Ahmad Shah, other resistance leaders lodged in Tihar Jail include Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Merajuddin Kalwal, Ayaz Muhammad Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Nayeem Ahmed Khan and Farooq Ahmad Dar, and are suffering from multiple ailments. They are being deprived of the medical aid which is posing a serious threat to their life,” the spokesman added. The illegally detained senior APHC leader, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, in a statement issued in Srinagar paid rich tributes to the Kashmiri youth who have been martyred by India troops during the current month. He said that the Kashmiris were rendering sacrifices of their precious lives for achieving freedom from Indian yoke. On the other hand, the Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, in a statement issued in Islamabad also expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained party Chairman, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail. He said that the continued detention was taking heavy toll on the health of Shabbir Ahmed Shah. He appealed to the world human rights defenders to play their role to help save Shabbir Shah’s life besides ensuring release of the detained leader and other Kashmiris languishing in different jails.
