Family to install memorial for Tufail Matoo
Srinagar, June 7: The father of slain teenager Tufail Matoo Tuesday said that a plaque would be installed at the spot of his killing in Gani Memorial Stadium, Rajouri Kadal, on his first death anniversary on June 11.
Muhammad Ashraf Matoo also announced a three-day program starting from June 10 including a seminar on June 12 and special prayers by all religious faiths for those who died last year in summer unrest.
Addressing media persons here, Ashraf said, “My son was an innocent student carrying school bag on his shoulders and five rupees in his hand after returning from coaching centre. For one year the culprit has not been booked contradicting the statement of Chief Minster that the accused has been identified and arrested in the case.”
“On June 11, a plaque in memory of Shaheed Tufail will be placed at Ghani Memorial Stadium Rajouri Kadal at 5 pm- the spot where he was killed by police on his way back from tuition centre,” he said.
Requesting the people to observe June 10 as ‘black day’ he asked imams of all masjids, Imam Baras, Jamia Masjid, Hazratbal, Shah-e-Hamdan Shrine, temples, gurdwaras and to perform special prayers for Tufail.
The fateha will be offered on the same day at Martyrs Graveyard Iddgah.
Tufail was killed on June 11 in 2010 and became an epicenter for a major uprising.
A spokesman of the local committee, Gulzar Ali, stated that on June 12 Quran Khawani will be held at local Darasgah at 10 am. In the afternoon starting from 2 pm a seminar is scheduled by the committee where emphasis will be laid on justice system in Jammu and Kashmir at Tufail’s residence at Saida Kadal.
