SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed condolence over the demise of prominent Islamic scholar of the sub-continent and the Pakistan Tableegi Jamaat patron Abdul Wahab stating that the religious contribution of the deceased at global level deserves rich tributes.
In a statement issued here, Mirwaiz termed the demise of Wahab as a great lost for not only the Muslim religious parties and the Muslims of the sub-continent but the entire Muslim world and prayed for the highest standards for the deceased in Janah. Mirwaiz also prayed to Almighty to grant patience to the family members of deceased.
Meanwhile, Mirwaiz paid rich tributes to the two youth killed in an encounter with government forces at Zainapora Shopian—Nawaz Ahmed Wagay and Yawar Ahmed Wani.
“The youth are spilling their blood for sacred cause. The sacrifices of the Kashmiri youth are our asset and it is the responsibility of the people as well as the leadership to safeguard them at any cost,” he said.
“Despite unleashing ultimate repression in Kashmir, New Delhi has failed to break the resolve of freedom loving people of Kashmir fighting for their legitimate birth right, the right to self determination,” Mirwaiz added.
