He said that the sacrifices Kashmiri people would not go waste and one day India would be defeated and the people of Kashmir would succeed in securing their right to self-determination. Imtiyaz Reshi, Shabbir Ahmad Butt, Jaffar Kashmiri, Advocate Abdul Ahad Qadri, Tahoor Ahmad, Zahid Zahoor and Zulfi also spoke on the occasion.

He said the situation in Jammu is no different today. “The so-called Village Defence Committee (VDC) members have been deputed in Muslim dominated areas over there to crush the sentiment of the people,” he added.
“We are fighting for a just cause-the right to self-determination and our people, despite the worst kind of repression and suppression, have devoted their lives for the cause,” he maintained.
