‘Martyrs’ sacrifices will not go waste’

Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Istaqamat Jammu and Kashmir has paid tribute to the martyrs of Jammu in November 1947 and said that the sacrifices of the martyrs would not go waste.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the Tehreek-e-Istaqamat Jammu and Kashmir spokesman in a statement in Srinagar said that on November 5, 1947, as part of a well-thought-out plan, the Muslims of Jammu were sent to Sialkot from Police Lines, Jammu, on trucks under the pretense of sending them to Pakistan. But they were brutally martyred at Mawa. The process was repeated at Satwari and lakhs of people were martyred.

The spokesman said this was the first attack to turn the Muslim majority of Jammu and Kashmir into a minority which continues till date.

Meanwhile, a conference was held in Muzaffarabad to express solidarity with the illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists languishing in different jails of India and the occupied territory.

A large number of representatives of various political, social and religious organizations and youth participated in the conference organized by the students’ wing of Tehreek-e-Shabab-e- Muslimeen.

The speakers paid glowing tributes to the Hurriyat leaders and activists for their sacrifices for the freedom of Kashmir. They said the bravery, courage, determination and perseverance with which they are bearing the persecution of Indian imperialism is unparalleled.

They said these people are suffering the hardships of imprisonment away from their families and many of them are suffering from fatal diseases while they do not have access to medical facilities.

Condemning the change in the population ratio, the speakers reiterated their resolve that the Muslim identity of Jammu and Kashmir would not be allowed to be erased under any circumstances.

They also strongly condemned the Israeli bombing of Gaza and the genocide of Palestinians.
