Malik addresses people in Tral, says Kashmiris ‘ready to sacrifice everything’
SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Mohammad Yasin Malik, on Saturday addressed a rally at Tral where he said that slain militant Sabzar’s struggle against “illegal occupation and oppression” will be always cherished by Kashmiris.
A statement issued by JKLF said that Malik visited the mother and other family members of Sabzar and expressed solidarity with them. He later addressed a rally at Ratsuna.
“(The) martydom of Sabzar Ahmad Bhat and his associates has trodden the hearts and souls of every Kashmiri. (The) struggle of this great soul against illegal occupation and oppression will be always remembered and cherished by Kashmiris,” Malik said at the rally.
The JKLF chairman said, “At the arrival of sacred month of Ramazan, our hearts and souls have been pierced by Indian bullets and lives of many of our young brave-hearts have been snatched by the occupational forces.”
“Shaheed Sabzar, like his friend Shaheed Burhan Muzaffar Wani, was a brave son of (the) soil who strived for the liberation of this nation and infused (a) new life in our resistance movement.”
Malik said the sacrifice of “this dignified young man” and the spontaneous mourning by each Kashmiri is a testimony to the fact that Kashmiris are ready to sacrifice everything to fight “illegal occupation of India”.
“The RSS-led PDP rulers have beaten all previous records by putting army along with other forces on roads to beat and kill people and have learnt no lesson from their previous inhuman acts. These people should remember that according to the law of retribution they will have to answer for their crimes against humanity,” Malik said.
Martyrs always in our hearts: Shabir Shah
Expressing “deep” grief over the killing of Sabzar Ahmad and his associates, the chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah said “martyrs are always in our hearts”.
Terming Sabzar as “hero of youth”, Shah said his contribution and sacrifices for the movement in such a short span of life is “exemplary”.
“The people’s love and affection for the mujahidin should be an eye-opener for India and its local collaborators. It is impossible to break the pro-freedom spirit and resolve of the people,” he said.
Shah also hailed the “pro-freedom” spirit of the people of Tral and said their contribution would be written in golden letters in the history of freedom movement of Jammu and Kashmir.
A DFP delegation comprising Bashir Ahmad Shah, Manzoor Ahmad Khan, Mohammad Shafi Lone, and other visited Tral and participated in funeral prayers of slain militants.
‘Mujahideen real heroes’
Dukhatarn-e-Millat (DeM) in its tributes said the “martyrdom of these Mujahideen is a great loss to the Kashmiri nation”.
In a statement, DeM general secretary Nahida Nasreen said, “Mujahideen are the real heroes of Kashmiri movement and their contribution will be written in golden letters in the history of Kashmir’s movement.”
She said India and its “stooges” must take note of how much people of Kashmir love their “Mujahidin”.
