GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 12: Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has called for a march to historic Jamia Masjid in downtown here on Friday.
A Hurriyat spokesman, quoting Mirwaiz, asked people to participate in the Friday congregational prayers at the grand Masjid.
“Due to curfew and restrictions on past six Fridays, prayers couldn’t be held there. But tomorrow we will offer prayers at Jamia Masjid. People shall also march towards Jamia Masjid,” he said.
Pertinently, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is under continuous house arrest, has announced that he would defy the restrictions and offer prayers at the Jamia Masjid.
The spokesman also asked the people to observe August 15 as a black day to protest against the human rights violations and denial of right to self-determination.
The spokesman said since 1947, India has been suppressing the sentiments of Kashmir by use of force. Kashmiris have been denied the right to self-determination which was promised by the Indian leaders.
“The Indian troopers have been committing unabated human rights violations to crush the just movement of Kashmiris. During the past over two months over 52 youth were killed by the troopers and police. To protest against the civilian killings and denial of even religious rights, we urge the people to observe August 15 as black day,” it said.
Meanwhile, on the second death anniversary of its senior leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz who was killed in police firing during the Muzaffarabad Chalo march in 2008, the conglomerate organised Quran Khawani at its party headquarters here.
Later a party delegation led by Mukhtar Waza offered floral tributes and prayers at the grave of Sheikh Aziz at Martyrs Graveyard Eidgah
Earlier a delegation of Awami Action Committee visited the houses of many youth and teenagers who were killed during the past two months. The delegation expressed sympathies with the bereaved families and conveyed the condolence message of Mirwaiz to them.
