Srinagar, June 20: On the occasion of 48th foundation day of Jammu & Kashmir Awami Action Committee, a general meeting of party leaders, workers and activists was held at the party headquarters Mirwaiz Manzil, which was presided over by the chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
The meeting paid glowing tributes to Mirwaiz Moulvi Muhammad Farooq for his immense contributions as a cleric, as Islamic scholar and thinker, as an agent of social change, and above all as a political leader. The gathering resolved that Awami-Majlis-e-Amal, as a representative of the people’s aspiration, would continue to fight for the right to self-determination of Kashmiris. It further said the party would continue to fight for the Kashmir cause in future as well till it reaches its logical end. The party further made it clear that they won’t desist from offering sacrifices in future, if needed.
Recounting the sacrifices laid by the 125 youth in 2010 including students and children for the struggle, the Awami Action Committee dedicated its foundation day in their remembrance. Reassuring the parents of 2010 martyrs, some of whom who were specially invited on the occasion, Mirwaiz said that the party believes that their sacrifices have added yet another golden chapter to the struggle of Jammu and Kashmir and that the sympathies of the whole Kashmiri nation are with families and relatives of the martyrs of 2010.
The party also observed its foundation day to express solidarity, pay tributes and remember thousands of youth and political prisoners who are imprisoned in Kashmir and in various jails across India. All of them are living their lives under extremely hard conditions in jails and torture centres. The party once again reiterated its demand to immediately release the Kashmiri prisoners on unconditional basis.
The Mirwaiz announced that as per the past practice this year 13th July will be observed as “Martyrs day” and as per the programme a complete strike will be observed in Kashmir. A procession will be taken from Jamia Masjid to Mazar-e-Shuhada Naqshband Sahib where tributes will be paid to the martyrs of 13th July 1931, and then the procession would proceed towards Mazar-e-Shuhada Iddgah where a public rally would be held to pay tributes to all the martyrs from 1931 till date, specially remembering the martyrs of 2008 and 2010.
The party expressed its satisfaction on the progress of Indo-Pak bilateral talks aimed to improve relations and called for the inclusion of genuine Kashmiri leadership for resolution of Kashmir issue permanently within a given time frame. If it happens, the party believes that permanent peace will be established in South Asia which would accelerate the pace of growth, progress and development of the region. This step will also end the era of regional insecurity.
The Awami Action Committee stressed on the Government of India that if it wants to make the negotiations result oriented, then they should immediately implement the suggestions given by the APHC. The party also demanded that the GOI should end human rights violation in Kashmir, torture and ‘draconian’ laws which give impunity to kill people.
Mirwaiz stressed the need to strengthen the party at the grass root level as strong and vibrant constituents of Hurriyat would ensure strong and stable APHC which would ultimately lead towards the success of the movement.
