‘Un­set­tled Kash­mir, Pales­tine dis­putes worsen geo-po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion’

Demise an­niver­sary of Maulana Yusuf Shah

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRINAGAR —The Chair­man of All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence, Syed Ali Gee­lani has said that peace in the world will re­main a dis­tant dream un­less dis­putes over Kash­mir and Pales­tine are re­solved as per as­pi­ra­tions of the peo­ples of the suf­fer­ing ter­ri­to­ries.

Syed Ali Gee­lani in a state­ment is­sued in Srinagar, Wed­nes­day ap­pealed to the Kash­miri peo­ple to ob­serve Juma-tul-Wida as day of Kash­mir and Al-Quds Day. He asked imams and Kha­teebs of mosques to hold spe­cial prayers on Fri­day for lib­er­a­tion of Kash­miri and Pales­tinian Mus­lims from il­le­gal oc­cu­pa­tion of In­dia and Is­rael. He said that In­dia and Is­rael had been sub­ject­ing the peo­ple of the two ter­ri­to­ries to bru­tal sup­pres­sion to sti­fle their voice for free­dom for the past six decades.

The Chair­man of Hur­riyet fo­rum Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq and APHC Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah in their sep­a­rate state- ments paid rich trib­utes to former Pres­i­dent of Azad Jammu and Kash­mir Mir­waiz Maulana Yousuf Shah on his 49th death an­niver­sary, to­day. They eu­lo­gized re­li­gious, so­cial and po­lit­i­cal con­tri­bu­tions of the de­ceased for the Kash­mir cause. A large num­ber of peo­ple vis­ited the grave of Maulana Yousuf Shah in Muzaf­farabad and of­fered Fateha for the de­parted soul.

Mean­while, peo­ple staged force­ful anti-In­dia demon­stra­tions in Islamabad, town, to­day, where polling for the so-called Kash­mir Assem­bly was held. Indian po­lice sub­jected the pro­test­ers to brute force. Com­plete shut­down was ob­served in Doda against the high­hand­ed­ness of Indian po­lice.

APHC leader, Muham­mad Ashraf Sehrai in his state­ment con­demned the ar­rest of Tehreek-e-Hur­riyet lead­ers and ac­tivists and teenaged stu­dents by Indian po­lice in So­pore.—KMS
