The joint resistance leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik Thursday urged people to make the “United Nations March” programme called by the leadership on Friday, February 10, a success.
A joint statement of the leaders said that Hurriyat Patriarch Syed Ali Geelani, Kashmir’s head priest Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and JKLF Chief Muhammad Yasin Malik would lead marches from different places after Friday prayers towards Lal Chowk from where they will together lead the public to the United Nations Organizations (UNMOGIP) office at Sonwar where a memorandum would be presented to the UN office and the world body would be urged to pressurise Government of India to return the mortal remains of, Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Bhat, which are laying at Delhi’s Tihar Jail, back to Kashmiri nation.
Stressing that Government of India was morally and ethically responsible for returning the mortal remains of the martyrs back to the Kashmiri nation, the statement said it was worst form of “violation of human and international rights” and regulations that even after a person’s death he was being subjected to political vendetta.
Stating that Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Muhammad Afzal Guru were the shinning beacons of Kashmir’s ongoing resistance movement, the statement said Kashmiris hold these great sons of soil and tens and thousands of other “martyrs” in high reverence for their selfless sacrifices and believe that fulfilling the mission of these martyrs is the moral and collective responsibility of the nation and that they would not let the “sacrifices of martyrs down”.
The joint statement said the Indian judiciary has been openly displaying its bias against Kashmiris and that the institute of judiciary in India is time and again used by the Indian state to punish the people of J&K for their political views and aspirations.
