Message on Martyrdom of Ghulam Muhammad Bulla by Farooq Rehmani

Islamabad 15,Feb 2012 (Press Release): The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has paid glowing tributes to the great sacrifice of Ghulam Muhammad Bulla Shaheed,who was tortured to death in the Central Jail Srinagar on 15 February,1975 for braving the Indra-Abdullah Accord 1975 to uphold the right of self-determination of the Kashmiris. He said that Bulla Shaheed was a brave young Kashmiri, and remained committed to the cause of Kashmir’s freedom to the end of his short life. It was after his martyrdom that the youths of Kashmir ventured their indigenous enduring, which bore fruits in the next two decades. His day of martyrdom is remembered every year and people pay tribute to the martyr of freedom.

Here it is worth reminding that 1974 and 1975 were the years of political turbulence in Kashmir. India’s then Prime minister Indra Gandhi and her emissary G. Parthasarthy had after many years of negotiations succeeded in arriving at a compromise formula with the leaders of the Plebiscite Front –Sheikh Abdullah and Mirza Afzal Beig. Although they claimed that the pre-1953 status of the State will be restored, but ultimately it was just a change of hands; and even the old nomenclature of the State–Prime minister and Sadre-Riyast was not restored. As a result of this Accord In February 1975, only the leaders of the ruling Congress Party were replaced by Sheikh Abdullah and his colleagues causing more anger and anguish among the people against the leadership of then Plebiscite Front. Consequently big protest demonstrations were held throughout the Jammu and Kashmir, against the accord between Indra Gandhi and Sheikh Abdullah. In Sopore anti-accord demonstration led by Ghulam Muhammad Bulla and others was brutally dispersed by police, and Bulla was arrested. He was taken to the local Police Station and beaten and tortured by the authorities especially DSP Sopore. After a few days he was shifted to the Central Jail Srinagar, where he graced his martyrdom.

The tragic episode did not end here. Bulla Shaheed’s corpse was taken to Sopore under the tight police escort, where in the dead of the night the martyr of freedom was buried by the police.

The tragic event sent shock waves across the valley and life remained paralyzed for many days in Kashmir to mourn his brutal-custodial killing.

Sheikh Abdullah replaced Syed Mir Qasim as the Chief Minister of the State under the terms of the compromise between the India’s ruling Congress party and Plebiscite Front. An overwhelming majority of the people and Pakistan did not swallow the bait. The then Prime minister of Pakistan Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Shaheed gave a protest call against this accord to be observed by the Kashmiris on Friday 28 February,1975.The protest call was responded by unprecedented shut-down by the people across Kashmir, stunning higher echelons of power in Delhi. It is still remembered in the chronicles of the period. Sheikh Abdullah had termed the Delhi Accord 1975 as a new chapter with new leaves of India-Kashmir relations, but when he died in 1982, he was a disappointed leader of his country. In the later years, Kashmiri youths reorganized themselves according to the lost bedrock of the political struggle. They are up-in-arms against occupation for the last 22 years. But, today they face the cob-web of bilateral trade- dialogue between India and Pakistan, where as they emphasize on both of them to unfold the road-map of just resolution and durable peace on the basis of the right of self-determination. Human blood always looks for glorious destiny of the suffering people. -Information Bureau
