Islamabad remembers Qazi Nisar Ahmad
Islamabad, June 19: This south Kashmir district observed a complete shutdown on Saturday to commemorate the 16th death anniversary of the prominent pro-freedom leader, Qazi Nisar Ahmad.
The strike call given by the Ummat-I-Islami evoked a complete response as shops and business establishments remained closed while traffic remained off the roads.
Hundreds of people led by the chairman of Ummat-I-Islami and Mirwaiz South Kashmir, Qazi Yasir took out a massive procession from Cheeni-Chowk which culminated at Dialgam where Qazi Nisar was shot dead by the unidentified gunmen on this very day 16-years ago.
Speaking on the occasion, Qazi Yasir, urged the young generation to remain resilient and steadfast at this juncture. “The un-bridled powers enjoyed by the armed forces in the state can go away once the occupation ends as this is the root cause for all the miseries Kashmiris are facing.”
He also vowed to take the mission of his father, Shaheed Qazi Nisar and other martyrs to its logical end.
Paying rich tributes to Qazi Nisar, ISL Chairman, Shakeel Bakshi described him as a visionary leader. “The contribution of Qazi Nisar in the freedom movement is unparallel. In spite being the architect of MUF he himself choose not to contest the election in 1987 and sacrificed his life for freedom”
Addressing the gathering, National Front, Chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, called for unity among the pro-freedom organizations. “Though, late Qazi Nisar was a religious scholar but his contribution on the political front is exemplary. He brought different political and religious parties on a single platform and the result was the creation of MUF,” said Khan adding that the same unity was the need of the hour at this juncture of freedom movement.
