Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday appealed people to observe complete shutdown on May 21.

Mirwaiz was addressing congressional meeting at Jamia Masjid Srinagar on Friday.

Hurriyat (M) observes May 21, as ‘The martyrs day’ to commemorate the death anniversary of late Mirwaiz Mohammad Farooq.

Late Mirwaiz Mohammad Farooq was assassinated on May 21, 1990 at his Nigeen residence.

Later, in 2002, Abdul Gani Lone was also assassinated on the same day at Eidgah Srinagar.

Lone played a key role in the formation of the separatist amalgam, Hurriyat Conference in 1993.

The sons of both the assassinated leaders are a part of Hurriyat (M). Mirwaiz Umar Farooq heads it and Bilal Gani Lone is one of its executive leaders.
