Kashmiris to protest to get Guru remains back.


Srinagar, MTT News Desk: In Occupied State of Jammu & Kashmir (OSJK), the Muttahida Majlis e Mashawrat (United Advisory Council) constituted by pro-liberation organisations has issued a five-day protest calendar to seek the mortal remains of Kashmiri leaders, Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru, from New Delhis Tihar Jail to Kashmir.

the MMM announced the protest calendar after a meeting in Srinagar attended by the representatives of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) led by the prominent Kashmiri leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Jamaat-e-Islami of OSJK, Kashmir High Court Bar Association and other organisations.

A statement issued by the MMM after the meeting said that there would be a sustained campaign to seek the mortal remains of Maqbool Butt and Afzal Guru from Government of India. It urged the people to observe a complete strike on Friday and stage protests after congregational prayers. The Imams of masjids should make people aware of the present situation like the life sentences awarded to people of Kashmir, it added.

As per calendar, lawyers will stage protests on Wednesday and raise slogans like we want freedom and return the remains of martyrs. On Thursday, people of South Kashmir will hold protests at district headquarters of Islamabad, Shopian, Pulwama and Kulgam, demanding the mortal remains of Butt and Guru during the protests.

On Saturday (March 2), people have been asked to hoist red-ribbons on houses, vehicles and shops. The red ribbons would be a reminder of the blood of thousands of martyrs, the statement said. It urged the people to compensate the Friday strike by normal business on Sunday (March 3).

We request the people of Kashmir to follow the protest calendar religiously, the statement added.

Senior APHC leader and the Chairperson of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Khawateen Markaz, Yasmeen Raja, along with a party delegation visited the residences of Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru and a 9th class student, Ubair Ahmad Rather, who was killed by Indian army during protest against Gurus hanging, in Sopore to express solidarity with the bereaved families.

A spokesman for the Muslim Khwateen Markaz in a statement in Srinagar said that Yasmeen Raja denounced Indias fascist tactics to suppress the Kashmiris liberation struggle.

She assured the family members of Muhammad Afzal Guru that a joint strategy would be worked out to press India for return of his body to the occupied territory from New Delhis Tihar Jail.
