Srinagar, December 09 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami (TWI) has paid rich tribute to prominent intellectual and freedom leader Khawaja Shuja Abbas on his second death anniversary.
The TWI spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said, the invaluable sacrifices rendered by Shuja Abbas for the Kashmir cause will always be remembered.
He said that Khawaja Shuja Abbas belonged to a well off and highly educated family and he could have lived a luxurious life but he had a feeling against India’s illegal occupation of his motherland since childhood and he chose the path to resistance. Shuja Abbas was one of the active leaders of the freedom movement and he had played an important role in organizing the Kashmiri people against the Indian occupation, he added.
The spokesman said that the great leader later migrated to Pakistan, the land of his dreams, where he continued to highlight the Kashmir dispute. He said that Shuja Abbas was a firm believer in two-nation theory and was a strong supporter of the accession of Jammu and Kashmir to Pakistan.
He prayed for the elevation of ranks of all Kashmiri martyrs, including the late leader, and early freedom of Jammu and Kashmir from Indian illegal occupation.
Shuja Abbas died on December 7, 2019 in Pakistan and was buried in Islamabad.
