SRINAGAR: The incarcerated chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah on Sunday appealed the bureaucrats not to “inflict any damage to the ongoing freedom struggle” and play positive role in this regard.
He asked people to “stand like a solid wall during the ongoing movement” while assuring that “the day is not far when Kashmir will be resolved as per the wishes and aspirations of its people”.
In a statement issued here, Shah said the need of the hour is to rise above the sectarian differences and “unite for a greater cause of freedom from Indian forcible rule”. “The roads, masajids, and shrines should be made centers of movement besides women should participate in the peaceful protests,” he said.
“To achieve Azadi, the sacrifice of lives and properties is inevitable and the only way to achieve our goal is to take the movement forward in a way prescribed by the Allah Almighty,” Shah said.
Shah said we are indebted to those mothers, sisters, and daughters whose loved ones laid down their lives for the freedom of the nation. “We assure these sacrifices won’t go waste but will yield results very soon, Insha Allah.”
Expressing satisfaction regarding the ongoing movement, the DFP chairman said world is listening to the voice of Kashmiris. “There are worldwide protests against the Indian barbarism in Kashmir and support to our struggle for freedom. The world leadership and people should campaign against the Indian oppression and pressurise India to give the people of Jammu Kashmir their inalienable right of self-determination,” he said.
Shah also appealed to the people of Pakistan and its rulers to “adopt a stand on Kashmir” and enhance efforts in political, moral, and diplomatic support to Kashmiri brethren.
