Our movement for freedom from India: Shah

Srinagar: The incarcerated chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah on Friday said just repealing of black laws like AFSPA and PSA is not the reason of our movement but to attain complete independence from India’s forcible and illegal occupation was our mission.
Shah also appealed the pro-India politicians to join the ranks of resistance camp to “liberate the nation from India’s clutches”.
In a statement issued here, Shah said: “We are passing through a very sensitive period of our freedom struggle and the need of the hour is to move forward with steadfastness. Every section of the society is duty-bound to play role vis-a-vis the ongoing movement. The employees must take the lead and set example for all. The medicos, as always, must continue their selfless efforts. This has been enough now. The whole world must read writing on the wall that the big powers cannot subjugate for long the weak nations. Our nation has rendered sacrifice of more than 5 lakh human lives. The black laws like AFSPA and PSA are just off-shoots; the real issue is the freedom from Indian forcible rule.”
The DFP chairman said to suppress the freedom movement of Kashmiris, India tried every single measure including killing of our youth and using rape as a war tool but to no avail. “Still, our nation demands Azadi from a usurper country, India,” he said.
Shah appealed the pro-India politicians not to act as mute spectators over the killing of innocent youth and “join the ranks of resistance camp to liberate the nation from India’s clutches”. The pro-freedom leader appealed the Pakistani government, politicians, and political parties to rejuvenate the Kashmir Committee and work tirelessly to highlight the Kashmir issue at every possible forum besides organise seminars through this Committee and utilise its embassies in highlighting the plight of the oppressed Kashmiris.
Meanwhile, Shabir Ahmad Shah expressed grief over the demise of patron Imam Khomeini Memorial Trust, Kargil, Sheikh Muhammad Hussain Zakiri and extended condolence and solidarity with the bereaved family.
“I had a personal relation with Late Zakiri Sahib. Whenever I visited Kargil, he expressed his utmost love and affection with me besides exhibited the utmost generosity and hospitality. He was a staunch supporter of the freedom movement,” Shah said.
