Tributes paid to martyred youth
Srinagar, April 20, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, a delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement visited Palhalan and expressed solidarity with family of a youth, Shabir Ahmad Sheikh, who was martyred by Indian troops during a siege and search operation in Sopore on Thursday.
The DPM leader, Bashir Ahmed Parray, addressing the mourners on the occasion paid glowing tributes to Shabbir and other Kashmiri martyrs. He said that the unparalleled sacrifices rendered by the Kashmiri people for the Kashmir cause would not go waste and the day was not far when they would get rid of Indian bondage.
Other members of the delegation included Nazir Ahmed Butt, Muhammad Shaban and Muhammad Altaf.
On the other hand, the Indian police prevented a team of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party, led by its General Secretary, Muhammad Abdullah Tari, from going to the residence of the bereaved family. The police intercepted the team in Palhalan and sent it back to Srinagar. The team comprised Moulvi Bashir Ahmed Shah, Jameel Ahmed, Gulzar Ahmed and Hakeem Ahsan.
The DFP spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar strongly denounced the police action. He said that killing of Kashmiris at the hand of India forces would continue till the Kashmir dispute was resolved in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
