Zahid’s Murder a National Tragedy, Mirwaiz Says



Terming the killing of Zahid Rasool Bhat as a national tragedy, Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq once again paid glowing tributes to the martyred youth and expressed sympathy with his bereaved parents and other family members.

As per the Hurriyat (m)’s programme, the Mirwaiz was scheduled to visit Batengo, Islamabad on Thursday, October 22, 2015 to participate in the congregational Fateh Khawani prayers and express sympathy with the aging parents of Zahid and the bereaving local community.

“However, the government forces have already made their plans known by placing the Hurriyat (M) Chairman under house arrest since Wednesday afternoon.”

A spokesman of the Hurriyat (M) said placing the Hurriyat (M) Chairman under house arrest without any provocation and stopping him from even performing the religious duties and offering condolences and sympathy with the bereaved family of Zahid was unfortunate and highly shameful.
