Peaceful struggle to continue: Mirwaiz
Tributes Paid To Late Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah
Srinagar, Aug 6: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umer Farooq Monday said Kashmir’s struggle for freedom would continue peacefully till the movement reaches its logical conclusion.
He said the peaceful struggle would culminate with the dawn of Azadi (freedom) and they shall never let sacrifices of thousands of Kashmiris go astray.
“The logical conclusion of Kashmir’s freedom struggle is yet to arrive. For the struggle, thousands of people have laid their lives and we shall continue our peaceful struggle till we succeed in our mission,” the Mirwaiz said, addressing a gathering at historic Aali Masjid on the 45th death anniversary of Mirwaiz Moulana Muhammad Yousuf Shah.
He said the late Mirwaiz (Moulana Muhammad Yousuf Shah) lived life in exile and poverty for the Kashmir cause. “His mission would be taken to its logical conclusion and his efforts for Kashmir’s freedom would remain documented in the golden chapters of history,” Mirwaiz said.
He said despite pressures from the Government of India, Mirwaiz Muhammad Yousuf Shah remained firm on his stand over Kashmir issue. “When he had finally decided to come to Kashmir with his family in 1955, the GoI pressurized him to withdraw from his firm stand on Kashmir issue and leave it forever. But late Mirwaiz remained steadfast on his commitment and did not compromise. He went back to Pakistan and lived there in exile,” the moderate Hurriyat leader said.
“To highlight Kashmir issue, Mirwaiz Muhammad Yousuf Shah visited many counties including Middle East. He put forward Kashmir issue before international community and sought their influence to solve the longstanding dispute.”
The Hurriyat chairman said every Kashmiri should make a commitment to remain steadfast on the issue of Kashmir till the political and religious mission of late Mirwaiz was achieved.
