Malik vows to expose killers
Srinagar, Apr 9: The chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front on Saturday vowed to spare no efforts in bringing to justice the killers of Jamiat-e-Ahlihadees president Moulana Showkat Ahmad Shah.
Addressing a condolence meeting here, Malik said the situation in Kashmir had come to such a pass in that a religious scholar is martyred in bomb blast in a Masjid in broad day light. “Since this situation is quite intolerable for us, we are required to take effective steps to put an immediate halt to this trend,” he said, calling upon all the religious organizations to play their role in putting an end to this dangerous situation.
Paying rich tributes to Moulana Showkat, Malik described him a great religious scholar, intellectual and reformer besides a dynamic personality who had dedicated his life to the service of humanity and cause of the unity of Muslims. “Shaheed Moulana was an embodiment of virtue, bravery and boldness. His objective was to promote both religious and worldly education among the youth. Establishment of diagnostic centre and dream of opening Trans-World University reflected his urge to serve the poor and promote education. Moulana was taking active part in ongoing struggle.
“He would at every platform raise his voice for the freedom and against atrocities on people of Kashmir,” he said.
Malik, a close friend of late Moulana, said “I had personal relations with him and he was like my elder brother and patron. And in his martyrdom, I feel like lost the part of body. He was a brave man who was well aware of all the risk and hazards. He was also earlier attacked. But he was never cowed down by the tyrannical forces.”
Malik assured the family members of Moulana that his works would be carried forward and his mission would be accomplished, Malik and other JKLF leaders had arrived at Moulana's residence in the morning and stayed there for the entire day.
