Hafta-e-Shahadah: Hurriyat (M) to organise seminar on May 19

Srinagar: A seminar will be organized by Hurriyat (M) on May 19 at its Rajbagh headquarters here in connection with the ongoing Hafta-e-Shahadah (martyr’s week), the spokesperson said on Saturday.
Hafta-e-Shahadah is being observed to commemorate the martyrdom anniversaries of Shaheed-e-Milat Moulana Mirwaiz Muhammad Farooq (RA), martyrs of Hawal massacre of May 21, 1990 and the martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed-e-Hurriyat Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone.
According to the statement, the spokesperson said the programme will presided over by the chairman of amalgam, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, while all the Hurriyat leaders and intellectuals will attend the seminar to pay tributes to the martyred leaders and all the martyrs of Kashmir struggle.
The speakers will also talk about the present political situation and the challenges ahead.
He said that the seminar will commence at 10:30 am with the recitation of the Quran.
Meanwhile, the spokesman paid tributes to the four slain militants in two separate encounters at Panzgam, Pulwama and Hathlangoo village of Sopore and said that the Kashmiri youth are being selectively targeted even in the ongoing fasting month of Ramadhan.
He said that the main reason for “the ongoing bloodbath in Kashmir was the lingering dispute” and until the Kashmir dispute is resolved in the backdrop of its historical perspective through sustained dialogue, there can be no guarantee to the peace in the region.
