Srinagar: On the directions of the Jammu Kashmir Awami Action Committee chief and Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, preparations for the twin programmes “Solidarity Day” for paying tributes to the Martyrs of Jammu on November 6 and “Million March” on November 7 were reviewed on Thursday.
Mirwaiz, who has been placed under house arrest for the past two days and barred from performing his religious, political and social obligations, had directed for reviewing the preparations for the two programmes following which Jammu Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) General Secretary, G N Zaki presided over the meeting at Mirwaiz Manzil, Rajouri Kadal and took stock of the arrangements.
Hurriyat (M) Chairman, in a telephonic address, gave directions to the leadership and party workers during the meeting and said it was a matter of satisfaction and pride that despite house arrests of the leaders, detentions of workers and raids on their houses, the meeting was being attended by a large number of party workers
He said the crackdown on the resistance leadership and the freedom-loving people of Kashmir was not a new thing or a new experiment in Kashmir but something that had been witnessed since 1947.
Mirwaiz said Awami Action committee leadership and its workers had witnessed such oppression for the past seven decades but this suppression had failed to break their resolve for carrying forward the resistance struggle.
Mirwaiz paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of Jammu of November 6, 1947 when lakhs of Muslims of Jammu were slaughtered by communal forces for changing the region’s demography.
He also paid tributes to the people of Jammu, Chenab Valley and Pir Panjal region for offering sacrifices for the right to self-determination of the people of Jammu Kashmir despite witnessing difficult times.
Directing the party leadership and workers to make the November 6 “Solidarity Day” programme for Martyrs of Jammu a success, the Mirwaiz said this would be the best opportunity for the people of Kashmir to express their solidarity with the people of Jammu and chinab region
He also expressed confidence that they would make the November 7 “Million March” programme a success despite government’s crackdown on the resistance leadership, detentions of Hurriyat activists and freedom-loving youth and raids on their residences.
Mirwaiz said by making such programmes a success, people will send a message across India and to the international community that Kashmir is a political issue that needs a political solution as per the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiris and that any era of development in the region can start only after the resolution of the vexed Kashmir dispute
Meanwhile speakers at the meeting condemned the crackdown on the resistance leadership and freedom-loving people, they said Indian forces had created fear psychosis in entire Srinagar City, which would not be tolerated.
Condemning the government for implementing the agenda of the communal and divisive forces and the Hindutva agenda of the rightwing parties like Rashtraiya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Bajrang Dal and Sang Parivar, the participants expressed grave concern over the issue.
Asking the resistance leadership and freedom-loving people of Kashmir to remain alert, they said the nefarious designs of these divisive forces would be foiled.
Meeting chaired by AAC General Secretary, G N Zaki was also attended by Ghulam Qadir Beigh, Advocate Moulvi Muhammad Ashraf, Peer Ghulam Nabi, AAC’s Youth Wing leader, Sofi Muhstaq Ahmad and Muhammad Sayeed Deedamarey and others and the participants promised the APHC Chairman that they would put in their all out efforts to ensure both the programmes are successful.
