SRINAGAR: “Sacrifices of martyrs like Pilot Nadeem Khateeb and others symbolise the sanctity and authority of our freedom struggle. We salute a man who was leading a well settled life in USA and sacrificed his life for the sacred cause and wrote an inerasable page of valour, dignity and struggle,” said the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Wednesday while paying rich tributes to Pilot Nadeem Khateeb on his anniversary.
Recalling the sacrifices and struggle of Nadeem Khateeb, JKLF chairman in a statement said, “He was a great son of the soil who left lavishness of life for Deen-e-Mubeen, strived for the freedom of his nation and sacrificed his life for the same cause.”
“Pilot Nadeem was a born revolutionary. He along with his childhood friend Shaheed-e-Kashmir Ishfaq Majeed Wani started the struggle right from their school days at Tyndale Biscoe School and both embraced martyrdom for the just cause.”
Malik said that Nadeem Khateeb’s martyrdom is answer to all those who club the freedom struggle of Kashmiris with poor economy, unemployment and at times dub people in resistance as miscreants.
