Srinagar, August 30 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, incarcerated senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has paid glowing tribute to the veteran Kashmiri leader, Syed Ali Gilani.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is under house arrest in Srinagar, in a statement said the people of IIOJK will always remember Syed Ali Gilani’s commitment, dedication and contribution in the ongoing struggle for Kashmiris’ right to self-determination.
Gilani sahib dedicated his whole life for the Kashmiri people and their right to self-determination, he said.
The Mirwaiz said the people of IIOJK will carry on their freedom struggle despite Indian state terrorism.
India has turned IIOJK into a huge prison where every right of the people has been usurped, he said, adding that the international community must help the Kashmiris in this situation.
It is to mention here that Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is under house arrest in Srinagar since August 05, 2019 when Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government repealed the special status of IIOJK and put it under strict military siege.
