Chairman Hurriyat (g) Conference, Syed Ali Geelani paid rich tributes to the Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Mohammad Afzal Guru on their death anniversaries.
Reiterating his demand for the return back of the mortal remains of both the slain persons, who were buried in the Tihar Jail premises, Hurriyat chairman said that although it is purely a human issue, but Delhi is very reluctant to this demand thereby violating all the principles of morality and constitution and in this way its claim of “largest democracy in the world” is getting badly exposed, the spokesman in a statement said.
Paying tributes to both, the spokesman quoting Geelani said that Bhat and Guru are heroes of the Kashmiri nation and we are proud of them. He said thousands of our valiant and bold people have sacrificed their precious lives for this cause but the Bhat and Guru are two separate cases among those who were detained, executed and buried in the same jail and in the same month.
The pro-freedom leader said that the best way of paying tributes to them is that the nation should not forget these brave sons of the soil who had sacrificed their “present” for the future of the nation.
While reiterating his demand for the return back of the mortal remains of both the “martyrs”, Hurriyat chairman said that until the mortal remains are not returned back to their families, the whole nation will not let down this demand.
