Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has paid glowing tributes to July 13 martyrs and its first Chief Commander Ishfaq Majeed Wani on their martyrdom anniversaries.
In a statement issued to GNS, the JKLF spokesman said that JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has been placed under house arrest from last night. “Police and forces cordoned the residence of JKLF Chairman and placed him under house arrest last night,” the spokesman said.
Remembering Ishfaq Majeed Wani on his martyrdom anniversary, Malik said that Shaheed Ishfaq was the “real heir” of the martyrs of July 13, 1931. “It was this gallantry young man who pioneered a historic revolution in 1990 which turned to be one of the biggest people’s revolutions in Kashmir’s five thousand year old history and thus marked the continuation of struggle started by the martyrs in 1931,” Malik said.
Malik said Ishfaq Wani was the one who showed us how to face tyranny and oppression and stood in the front line when the time to sacrifice came. “The fact of the matter is that since Ishfaq Sahib’s martyrdom in 1990, this poor nation has not seen any one courageous, religious, gallantry, wise and practical freedom fighter than him.”
Paying rich tributes to the martyrs of July 13, 1931, JKLF Chief said the martyrdom of these courageous Kashmiris is a milestone in the history of Kashmir. “These martyrs endured the bullets of tyrants and occupants on their chests and started the journey of freedom of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Malik said that history of Jammu and Kashmir will always remember these martyrs in high esteem and no Kashmiri can ever forget their sacrifices.
Terming the blockades, restrictions, arrests and house arrest as shameful acts of so called biggest democracy India and its state puppets, Malik said that to stop people from raising their voices and banning peaceful political activities has become a common practice of these so called democratic rulers. “These occupying forces know that if people of Kashmir are given a free chance to speak and act, their illegal occupation and rule will come to an end.”
