PADAM SHRI TO MUMA KANNA
Srinagar, Feb 3: Taking a serious exception to the conferment of Padma Shri award to whom it called, the most notorious renegade Muma Kanna, the United Jihad Council spokesman, Sadaqat Hussain termed it an open encouragement of Kashmiris’ killers.
Ghulam Muhammad Mir alias Muma Kanna has been nominated for Padam Shri Award for his ‘distinguished public services.’
“Muma Kanna by his own admission is involved in getting hundreds of mujahideen and civilians martyred and 5000 others arrested. He is responsible for rendering hundreds of women widowed and thousands of children orphaned. This renegade has destroyed thousands of families,” said Sadaqat, adding, “By conferring the award to Kana, who is under trial in several murder and attempt to murder cases, the government has also done a cruel joke with those who have been given this award for their services.”
Saqadat also flayed those who recommended Kana’s name for the award.
Hurriyat Conference (G) Wednesday said conferring Padam Shri to “notorious” Ikhwani commander, Ghulam Muhammad Mir, was no surprise as the government of India was “hell bent to suppress the people of Kashmir.”
“Both the state and Indian government is hell bent on that. Sole motive of the people like Farooq Abdullah is power and they have no sympathies for Kashmiri Muslims or Pandits,” the party spokesman said in a statement.
“Farooq Abdullah entered into coalition with BJP and continued the alliance even after the Gujarat massacre. If such people have recommended Mumma kanna for the award, it shall be no surprise for the people,” he said.
He said the party would observe February 5 as the Solidarity Day with the Muslim world especially Pakistan.
Meanwhile, the party has expressed concern over the deteriorating health of veteran pro-freedom leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
“He (Geelani) is under treatment in Apollo Hospital in Delhi and he has appealed people to pray for his good health and speedy recovery,” he said.
The Jammu & Kashmir Salvation Movement chairman, Zaffar Akbar Bhat expressed concern over conferment of Award to Muma Kana. He said it clearly showed that the government was encouraging Kashmiris’ killers.
Zaffar thanked the government and the people of Pakistan for announcing February 5 as Kashmir Solidarity Day.
Awami National Conference castigated the government for conferring the award to Kana. In a statement, ANC said, “This proves that people who commit atrocities on the masses are being rewarded by the government.”
