Shakeel Bakshi remembers July 13 martyrs

Srinagar: Senior resistance leader and patron Islamic Students League Shakeel Ahmed Bakshi said today that the best tribute to the martyrs was to remain cautious and vigilant against any compromise or sellout by any country, organization or a leader.

In a statement issued here, Bakshi said that July 13 holds a special significance in the resistance history of Jammu and Kashmir and the flame lit on that day was still burning and shining in shape of continuous resistance against occupation.

“It is unfortunate that sacrifices of post- 47 era including 13th July 1931 were bartered by leadership for their personal and family gains and petty interests,” he said.
