SRINAGAR: A high-level delegation of Muslim League on Wednesday visited the residences of slain Kashmir University assistant professor Dr Muhammad Rafi, Fayaz Ahmad Hamal and Abid Ahmad, to express sympathy and solidarity with their families on behalf of party chairman Mushtaq-ul-Islam.
According to a statement issued here, the delegation was led by Muslim League senior leader Fayaz Sibtain, secretary public affairs Fayaz Ahmad, Bilal Ahmad Shah, Sheikh Mohammad Iqbal, Ameer district Ganderbal Khalid Mustafa Khan and other activists.
Paying tributes to slain, Sibtain said, “Tyranny and oppression by India will not deter people from pursuing their struggle for the right of self-determination.” He urged all well-wishers to look after those injured in forces’ firing and destitute families of martyrs and detainees.
Hailing the contribution of slain KU professor, Muslim League leader termed him as an intellectual par excellence and said, “His sacrifice for the holy cause serve a supreme precedence for generations to come. His priority for resistance illustrates his passion and deep sentiment against tyranny and slavery.”
Sibtain expressed deep grief over the unabated killing of youth by government forces and said New Delhi is backtracking from all its commitments pledged with the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
He said the “suppressive tactics” will not bring New Delhi its desired results as people in general and youth in particular are resolved to take the ongoing resistance movement forward towards its goal.
