Martyrdom is soul of freedom movement: Farooq Rehmani

Islamabad, February 10 (KMS): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has said that martyrdom is the soul of freedom movement.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad paid glowing tributes to prominent martyred Kashmiri liberation leaders, Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru, on their martyrdom anniversaries.

India had executed Muhammad Maqbool Butt in New Delhi’s Tihar jail on February 11 in 1984 and Muhammad Afzal Guru on February 09 in 2013 in the same jail. The bodies of the two martyrs remain buried in the premises of the jail.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that Afzal Guru was arrested in a fake attack case on the Indian Parliament in 2001 and kept in illegal solitary confinement for 12 long years inflicting heavy mental and physical torture on him. When there was no evidence and solid proof against him, the Indian judiciary announced its biased judgment to satisfy the collective conscience of the Indian people, he added.

The JKPFL Chairman said that the Indian authorities ridiculed the law by hanging Afzal Guru after sunrise and never called Guru’s family for the last hour meeting. He said that Muhammad Maqbool But was hanged in Tihar jail on Feb 11, 1984, revengefully after an Indian diplomat was found murdered in a London suburb. He said that Maqbool Butt was a great patriot of the Kashmiri freedom movement and was languishing in Tihar jail since 1976. He called upon the UN to support the Kashmiris’ demand for return of the mortal remains of both martyred leaders.

Farooq Rehmani eulogized the sacrifices of Maqbool Butt and Afzal Guru. He said that the Kashmiris had been rendering unmatched sacrifices for freedom for the last 70 years and the Indian state, its troops and fanatic Hindu gangs had martyred over four hundred thousand Muslims in all regions of occupied territory during their 70 years of campaign of ethnic cleansing.

The JKPFL Chairman denounced large scale arrests, long detentions, imprisonments and life sentences to political/ religious leaders, human rights activists and youth by the Indian authorities across occupied Kashmir, saying that the traumatized region had been changed into a graveyard and a prison house in which people had to suffer in jails or killed by Indian troops and police at will.

Farooq Rehmani appealed to the United Nations and Parliaments of different states especially to the British Parliament to take up the issue of Kashmir for sustained debate and discussion to impress upon its government to correct the wrong done by the last viceroy Lord Mount Batten by depriving the Kashmiris of their right to freedom
