Srinagar, Dec 15: Different separatist organizations have paid glowing tributes to Ghulam Ahmad Mir alias Shams-ul-Haq of Sanoor Kalipora, Budgam, on his martyrdom anniversary being observed on Sunday.
Paying rich tributes to Shams-ul-Haq, the Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman described him a great thinker and brave Mujahid who gave even the last drop of this blood for the Kashmir cause.
“Shams-ul-Haq is topping the list of great personalities produced by Tehreek-e-Islami Jammu Kashmir. His martyrdom created such a void which could not be filled till date," Geelani said in a statement.
The Hizb-ul-Mujahideen command council, at a meeting held in Pakistan administered Kashmir with its supreme commander Syed Salahuddin in chair, paid glowing tributes to Shams-ul-Haq, reiterating the pledge to take his mission to its logical end.
Hailing the services of Shams-ul-Haq to the ongoing movement, Salahuddin described him a great practicing religious scholar, intellectual and a Mujahid who would spend nights in the remembrance of Allah and spend his days in the battlefield. “He was working as amir-i-Hizb in the base camp and Nazim-e-Taleem-e-ala in field. He was martyred in a fierce encounter with the armed forces on December 16, 1993, at Wattarpora, Budgam, in central Kashmir,” Salahuddin said, reiterating the pledge to take the mission of martyrs to its logical end.
Paying tributes to Shams-ul-Haq, the Democratic Freedom Party chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah said the struggle would continue till the Kashmir issue is resolved according to the aspirations of the people of the Valley. “We will continue our struggle till the mission of martyrs is completed,” he said.
The Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu Kashmir general secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai has also paid glowing tributes to Shamul-Haq , urging people to support the ongoing struggle in Jammu and Kashmir.
