Ummat-i-Islami remembers Qazi Nissar
Nayeem Khan, Shabir Shah, Zaffar Akbar,Qazi Yasir placed under house arrest
Srinagar, June 17: Ummat-i-Islami Jammu and Kashmir Sunday organized a seminar here in memory of former Mirwaiz south Kashmir Qazi Nissar.
The seminar was expected to be attended by senior Hurriyat leaders and scholars including Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Nayeem Khan, Shabir Shah, Yasin Malik, Zaffar Akbar Bhat and Mirwaiz south Kashmir Qazi Yasir. But none among them could attend it owing to detentions and house arrests, the hosts said.
Speaking on the occasion, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (R) vice-chairman Tahir Ahmad Mir condemned the arrest of senior Hurriyat leaders. While paying tributes to Mirwaiz Qazi Nissar, he said, “ He was a greater scholar who sacrificed his life for Kashmir cause. It is rightly said that the ink of a scholar is holier than the blood of a martyr. Mirwaiz Nissar was one among them who knew that he had a mission of representing Kashmir through his ink.”
Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (Haqeeqi) said ruling government was exploiting the Kashmir cause. “The clan who had stood up for right to self determination is now ruling Kashmir. From Sheikh Abdullah to Omar Abdullah Kashmir Issue has been exploited,” he said.
He said Kashmiris are to be included in talks if the Kashmir issue has to be resolved. “There is no fun of treaties and agreements Kashmiris have to be included in talks. It is not other people who have to decide the future of Kashmir. It is Kashmiris themselves and for that everyone has to be answerable which includes Salahuddin as well,” Mir said.
Chairman Islamic Political Party Muhammad Yusuf Naqash said if New Delhi does not pay heed to the peaceful sentiments of Kashmiris then there is likelihood of another rebellion breaking out.
The speakers said UN resolutions of Kashmir were the blood of the movement which needed to be respected.
Shabir Dar of Muslim Conference said, “UN Resolutions were highly contextual and formed the base of the sentiment. When we had a meeting with the editor of Washington Post the only thing he said was to adhere to UN Resolutions of Kashmir. Now people here are telling that they are not contextual,” he said.
