Hurriyat (G) urges people to assemble at Eidgah on July 13

Srinagar, July 9: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Saturday urged people to assemble at Martyrs graveyard at Eidgah here on July 13 at 11 am to offer Fateha Khawani for all the martyrs and then march towards Naqashband Sahab in old city.
Paying rich tributes to July 13, 1931, martyrs, a spokesman of Hurriyat (G) quoting amalgam chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani said, “July 13, 1931, martyrs had offered the sacrifices for the Kashmir cause. But the then leadership made a sell-out with the martyrs’ blood and gave up their ideology in 1938. The National Conference and other mainstream political parties have no moral right to exploit the July 13, martyrs as they have already made a sell-out of their blood in lieu of chairs.”
The spokesman while giving details of July 13 program said, “After offering Fateh Khawani at Martyrs graveyard, a procession will be taken out from Eidgah to Naqashband Sahab where Geelani sahib will address the people.”
He said the decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of Hurriyat advisory council members held here today. “It was decided that complete shutdown would be observed on July 13, in whole Valley and areas of Doda, Kishtwar, Rajouri and Poonch. People on this day will visit their local graveyards and organize special prayers for the martyrs,” said the spokesman.
Expressing serious concern over the continued detention of political detainees, the Hurriyat has appealed to the Amnesty International and International Red Cross to exert pressure on India for the immediate release of these detainees.
The amalgam advisory council, according to Hurriyat statement, took a serious note of, what said, strict vigil on the activities of youth in university and colleges by the police and other agencies. “The students studying in these educational institutions are being harassed as result of which their career is getting badly affected,” said the spokesman.
Meanwhile, the spokesman termed sports competitions organized by the army as conspiracy.
