Hurriyat(M) takes stock of arrangements for July 13 event at martyrs’ graveyard

Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Thursday took stock of the arrangements being made for the public rally scheduled to be addressed by pro-freedom leaders on July 13 at martyrs’ graveyard.
A spokesman of the party said that Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam and Jammu Kashmir Youth Awami Action Committee president, Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi visited martyrs’ graveyard Khawaja Naqashband Sahib (RA). and took stock of arrangements being made for the public rally at the venue.
As part of their joint program, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and JKLF chairman Mohammad Yaseen Malik would be offering noon (Zuhar) prayers at Jamia Masjid following which they would lead a procession to martyrs’ grave yard at the shrine of Khawaja Naqashband Sahib (RA) to pay tributes to July 13 martyrs.
Meanwhile, addressing a gathering at Hazrat Peer Dastgir Sahib (RA) at Saraibala, Mirwaiz stated that the Muslim world was suffering on social, political and economical fronts only because they have strayed away from the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and Khalifa-e-Rashdein.
Mirwaiz stated that Ramadan is providing an opportunity to people to fulfill their religious duties and also to discuss their social problems.
He said in this holy month, there was a need that every individual realizes his responsibilities towards bringing in reform in society based on Islamic values and principles.
Terming the complete resolve and commitment towards freedom struggle as inevitable to take the movement to its logical conclusion, Mirwaiz said the innumerable sacrifices offered by Kashmiris demand that we should bring uniformity of approach in our ranks to achieve success.
The Hurriyat said that nations never get cowed down or forget their sacrifices. “Nations stand like rock to face any challenge and bear all sufferings to achieve their goals,” he said.
Asserting that the “occupier” was using military might to weaken the spirits of Kashmiris, Mirwaiz said peace and stability would not arrive in South Asia without solving Kashmir dispute permanently.
