Hundreds participated in the Nimaz-e-Jinaza in absentia for a prominent Islamic scholar and politician, Qazi Hussain Ahmad, who passed away in Pakistan a day before. The Nimaz-e-Jinaza in absentia was organized by Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, and it was led by its care taker chairman, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai and it was attended by prominent pro- freedom leaders like Shabir Ahmad Shah and Nayeem Ahmad Khan.

Qazi Hussain Ahmad, former Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami chief, passed away Sunday morning. All the pro-freedom leaders have called the demise of Qazi as a great loss for the Muslims of the subcontinent. Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani has wished to travel to Pakistan so that he can meet the bereaved family and Jamaat leaders. “Geelani has applied for a Tatkal passport and we are hopeful that he will be travelling to Pakistan in the coming days,” Ayaz Akbar, Hurriyat(G) spokesman said.

Hundreds of people including dozens of prominent citizens and pro-freedom leaders gathered in the Eid Gah of old Barzulla and took part in the prayers in absentia. Sehrai in his brief speech paid rich tributes to late Qazi saying, “He used to raise his voice in favour of the oppression whenever it was needed.” Sehrai added that with the demise of Qazi, Kashmiris have lost a great friend.
