SRINAGAR: Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) general secretary, Moulana Abdullah Tari, will lead a party delegation to Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi to participate in the proposed ‘Pakistan Day’ function there on March 23.
In a statement issued to press, a party spokesperson said during a meeting held at DFP headquarters here, it was decided that Moulana Tari will lead a delegation to Pakistan Embassy where he will “felicitate Pak High Commissioner Abdul Basit on ‘Pakistan Day’ and convey party chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah’s special message besides thank him on behalf of Kashmiri people”.
“Moulana Tari sahib will also thank the Pakistani leadership, its people, military, and religious and political organisations for their unrelenting support to Kashmir cause. He will convey his good hopes that Pakistan will continue its political, moral, and diplomatic support to Kashmiris and enquire about the health condition of the ailing pro-freedom leader, Syed Ali Geelani sahib,” he said.
Meanwhile, Moulana Tari condemned the slapping of “fabricated” charges by the administration against the members of Muslim League Jammu Kashmir including Hakeem Showkat, Mehraj-ud-din, Manzoor Ahmad, and Muhammad Younis.
“To book those believing in peaceful political activism under such baseless charges reveals that the state administration is hell bent to put a blanket ban on the political activities of pro-freedom leaders in the state and deny them any political space,” he said.
Tari said nowhere in the world is political voice suppressed by military might but “India is openly using black laws to suppress the voices based on justice, which is unconstitutional”.
“It is unfortunate that world watches as mute spectator over the reign of oppression and terror unleashed upon the people of Jammu and Kashmir by India. The world leadership must break its criminal silence and fulfill its responsibility of stopping India from committing atrocities in Kashmir,” DFP general secretary said.
