ISLAMABAD: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has eulogized the sacrifices and services of martyred freedom leaders, Ghulam Muhammad Bulla , on the eve of his martyrdom anniversary.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad said i Ghulam Muhammad Bulla was a young freedom-fighter of 1970s, when he was tortured to death by the Indian police at Srinagar Central Jail during midnight of February 14 and 15 in 1975. He said that immediately after this heinous crime police in the dead of night shifted his dead body to Sopore, where he was buried before dawn.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani paid glowing tributes to valour, determination and patriotism of Shaheed Bulla who rose against infamous Indra-Abullah Accord of 1975 and took part in peaceful demonstrations against Indian occupation to create public awakening for revolution.
The JKPFL Chairman said that it was the first prison murder which shook the entire Kashmir and international probe was demanded by the people to bring to justice the killer police officer but Shiekh Abdullah’s Government didn’t pay any heed to it. He said that since 1970s, Jammu and Kashmir had undergone many upheavals and over one hundred thousand Kashmiris had been martyred by the Indian troops across the territory.
Besides, during these long periods two great patriots of Kashmir – Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru were hanged and buried in Tihar Jail, and still many Kashmiris are suffering in Indian jails for the last 15 to 20 years under life sentence, Farooq Rehmani said.
“The aim of all these sacrifices is to impress upon the world community to address the question of Kashmir and prevail upon India under the UN Charter and its relevant Security Council resolutions to hold plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir. The UN has moral and legal obligation to facilitate talks between Pakistan and India for a final resolution of the Kashmir dispute,” he added.
