Srinagar, February 15, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet Conference Jammu and Kashmir leaders, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash and Shabbir Ahmad Dar have paid rich tributes to the prominent pro-freedom fighter, Ghulam Muhammad Bulla on his 40th martyrdom anniversary.
Muhammad Yousuf Naqash and Shabbir Ahmad Dar in a joint statement issued in Srinagar on Sunday said that Bulla was a brave young pro-freedom fighter and remained committed to the Kashmir cause to the end of his life.
They described Bulla a courageous and sincere pro-freedom leader who raised his voice against Indra-Abdullah Accord which led to his arrest and custodial martyrdom on February 15, 1975.
The Hurriyet leaders urged India to eschew its stubbornness and take steps to settle the lingering dispute. They said that New Delhi had failed to suppress the voice of Kashmiris by force since 1947.
Both leaders demanded withdrawal of Indian troops, release of political prisoners and annulment of draconian laws. “Kashmir is the core issue between the two nuclear powers of the region. If the issue is not included in the agenda and there is no positive headway for its resolution, the talks are bound to fail,” they added.
Meanwhile, a prayer session was held in Sopore to pay tributes to Ghulam Muhammad Bulla.
Muhammad Yousuf Naqash and Shabbir Ahmad Dar addressing on the occasion said that the Kashmiri martyrs had centre-staged Kashmir dispute at the international level and their sacrifices would not be allowed to go waste.
