The Legitimate Desk: Mansoor
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly condemned the killing of a civilian Shahid Mansoor at Shopian by forces.
Mirwaiz while terming the killing as extremely barbaric said that it was a glaring example of how under the grab of infamous and brutal CASO, our youth are being killed and targeted on a daily basis.
He also paid tributes to the armed youth Shaheen Irfan killed in an encounter in Gagran Shopian and said that the intransigence of GoI on Kashmir dispute is pushing the youth towards picking up guns.
Meanwhile, Mirwaiz expressed grief and sorrow over the demise of the prominent political figure of PaK Sardar Khalid Ibrahim who was the son of former PaK president Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan and a close associate of Muhajire Millat Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah.
Mirwaiz in his condolence message while paying rich tributes to deceased leader said that his political and social contributions are unforgettable and that he will be remembered for his unflinching stand on Kashmir dispute as he always maintained that it should be resolved as per the wishes and aspirations of its people.
While praising Khalid Ibrahim for his farsightedness, Mirwaiz said that he was a great leader who earned name and fame by serving the people of PaK on all fronts in his four-decade-long political career.
Sardar Khalid always stood to his principles and never compromised on his stand on the Kashmir dispute, he said. Mirwaiz prayed for the highest standards in Jannah for the deceased.
Mirwaiz also expressed his serious concern over the huge losses caused to the apple and other crops on both sides of the tunnel including Chenab Valley, South and North Kashmir due to unexpected snowfall and expressed sympathy and solidarity with the farmers in the present testing times.
He said though natural calamities and fury can’t be avoided, the only way to face these difficult times is to stand strong, united and seek protection for life and property from Allah Almighty. (GNS)
