Islamabad, June 06 (KMS): Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Front (JKNF) and Hurriyat leader, Altaf Hussain Wani has expressed deep shock over the demise of Hafizullah Khan, the uncle of party chairman, Nayeem Ahmed Khan.
Hafiz Ullah Khan of Pathanpora Pattan breathed his last after a brief illness at a local hospital in Srinagar on Sunday.
In his condolence message Altaf Hussain Wani, while extending his heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved family, said, “We share the grief of Nayeem Ahmad Khan Sahab and his entire family and pray to Allah to bestow them with patience to bear this irreparable loss”.
Highlighting the Khan family’s supreme sacrifices and peerless contribution towards the ongoing resistance movement, he said that the family had suffered terribly at the hands of Indian forces due to the Front chairman’s unwavering commitment and lifelong struggle against India’s illegal and forcible occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
Altaf Wani said that the Nayeem Ahmed Khan’s mother also passed away at a time when he was under detention. He said that as per the law there was no ban on a prisoner of any category attending the funeral of a close relative but the Indian government has a history of denying Kashmiri prisoners of this right.
He prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the deceased a place in Jannat-ul-Firdous and forbearance to the bereaved family.
