AAC organises Seerat conference in Srinagar

Release of Mirwaiz, other Hurriyat leaders demanded

Srinagar, November 06 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) organised a dignified Seerat conference in Srinagar today.

The AAC President, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq could not preside over the conference due his continued house detention since August 5, 2019 and was chaired by senior Hurriyat leader, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt.

The eminent scholars, leaders and intellectuals, who addressed the conference, included Maulana Showkat Hussain Keing, Prof Abdul Ghani Butt, Maulana Masroor Abbaas Ansari, Dr Syed Sameer Siddiqui, Ghulam Hassan Ghamgeen, Engineer Muhammad Afaq Chishti, Shabbir Ahmad Mir, Shafaat Ahmed Wafai and Maulana M.S Rehman Shams. The speakers shed a detailed light on the biography of Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (PBUH) and the radiant aspects of his life.

On the occasion, the speakers expressed serious concern over the continued illegal and arbitrary detention of Hurriyat forum Chairman and head of the Awami Action Committee, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and demanded immediate release of all illegally detained political leaders including the Mirwaiz.

The speakers said the anti-people measures being taken by the authorities after August 5, 2019, the manner in which all the basic, human, political and religious and democratic rights of the people are being violated by Indian forces is not only a matter of concern but also reprehensible. They made it clear that problems cannot be resolved by force and violence; on the contrary, if peace and development is really needed, the long-pending dispute over Kashmir must be resolved through peaceful dialogue between all parties.

“After August 5, 2019, today we address the nation from the Mirwaiz Manzil that this grand and ancient building is not only our historical, cultural, religious and political heritage but the historical centre has seen many ups and downs since day one”, they added.

Urging the people of Kashmir to keep their resolve and morale high, the speakers said from day one, the outspoken leadership of the Awami Action Committee and before it the Muslim Conference, has not only selflessly expressed the sentiments and feelings of the people but has also performed its duty of guiding the Kashmiri people at every important and critical stage.

At the end of the conference, on the anniversary of the 1947 martyrs of Jammu, a great tribute was paid to them and prayers were offered for the elevation of their status in Jannah.
