United Jihad Council (UJC) on Friday paid tributes to Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Bhat on their anniversaries on Feb 09 and 11 respectively.
In an e-mailed statement issued UJC spokesman Syed Sadaqat Hussain while quoting its chief, Syed Salah-ud-din said, “Feb 09 and 11 remind us that Indian judiciary instead of delivering justice is giving verdicts according to the willingness of its government.”
He said that “on Feb 09, 2013 and Feb 11, 1984, Fazal Guru and Maqbool Bhat were respectively hanged in New Delhi’s Tihar jail aimed to suppress the freedom struggle but history stands testimony to the facts that the struggle became much stronger and every Kashmiri is busy in freedom struggle.”
“Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru instead of bowing down preferred to get hanged. The duo shining stars taught Kashmiris the motive of life,” he said, adding that the day is not far when people of Kashmir see the dawn of freedom.
UJC Chief as per the statement also paid tributes to slain Kashmiris especially those who lost their lives in the week and said that “nobody will be allowed to barter with their sacrifices.”(KNS)
