Islamabad, June 16: The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Remani has paid glowing tributes to Nazir Ahmad Shah Shaheed, a great freedom fighting commander and political leader in the 1980s and 1990s, on his 23rd death anniversary, who was martyred by the Indian army, police and their collaborators in a ruthless joint operation in June 15, 1994 in Bemina Srinagar.
It was followed by hundreds of killings of civilians and mujahideen in 1994, across Jammu and Kashmir. His dead and mutiliated body was later buried in Kalusa Bandipora, where thousands of people gathered to offer Jinaza to the martyred leader, and life in the valley came to standstill for 3 days. He said the on going resistance movement was the continuation of 1990s and the Kashmiris continued to offer unparalleled sacrifices to end the Indian illegal occupation of J&K.
He said the last few years of revival in the freedom struggle with newly imbibed youth pattern of conscious and confident ways, Kashmiris had entered a decisive phase never to see backwards. He regretted that the world powers were ignoring the precarious conditions in the State but it would not be in the wider interests of peace and humanity to keep the Kashmir issue lingering on for an indefinite period of time.
He urged the UN and the big powers to understand Kashmir and its vulnerability for peace and regional stability to take solid measures for its just, peaceful and durable solution in accordance with the UN Charter and its relevant resolutions.
