SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leaders including Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, Thursday urged people to make the United Nations March program called by the leadership on Friday, February 10, a success.
A joint statement of the leaders issued by Hurriyat Conference (M) said that Hurriyat Patriarch Geelani, Kashmirs head priest Mirwaiz Umar and Malik would lead marches from different places after Friday prayers towards Lal Chowk wherefrom they will together lead people to the United Nations Organizations (UNMOGIP) office at Sonwar. A memorandum would be presented to the UN office and the world body would be urged to pressurise Government of India to return the mortal remains of, Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Bhat, which are laying at Delhis Tihar Jail, back to Kashmiri nation, the statement said.
Stressing that Government of India was morally and ethically responsible for returning the mortal remains of the martyrs back to the Kashmiri nation, the statement said, it was worst form of violation of human and international rights and regulations that even after a persons death he was being subjected to political vendetta.
Stating that Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Muhammad Afzal Guru were the shinning beacons of Kashmirs ongoing resistance movement, the statement said, Kashmiris hold these great sons of soil and tens and thousands of other martyrs in high reverence for their selfless sacrifices and believe that fulfilling the mission of these martyrs is the moral and collective responsibility of the nation and that they would not let the sacrifices of martyrs down.
The joint statement said, the Indian judiciary has been openly displaying its bias against Kashmiris and that the institute of judiciary in India is time and again used by the Indian state to punish the people of J&K for their political views and aspirations.
