Assault on Shah, Khan, ors condemned
Srinagar, June 26: The yesterday’s assault on Hurriyat Conference (M) leaders, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan and others, by some people at Khanyar here has evoked severe condemnation from different separatist groups and leaders, terming it a handiwork of anti-movement elements.
“Attack on Shah sahib and Khan sahib is deplorable. It is the attack on the Kashmir movement,” Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar told Greater Kashmir.
“Miscreants responsible for the attack should be identified and tried in people’s court,” he added.
“These leaders have made a huge contribution towards the Kashmir struggle and such attacks are condemnable,” he added.
Condemning the assault, the chief patron of Jammu Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi Muhammad Azam Inqillabi termed it a criminal act.
“It is a criminal assault. The way Shabir Shah, Nayeem Khan, Javaid Mir and Muhammad Yousuf Naqash were attacked it looks New Delhi doesn’t want peaceful resistance movement here,” he said.
Commenting on his proposed restructuring proposal for Hurriyat, Inqilabi said “Mirwaiz Umar Farooq should disband executive and general council.”
Condemning what she termed as murderous assault on Shabir Ahmad Shah and his colleagues, the chief of Muslim Khawateen Markaz Yasmeen Raja said the anti-movement elements were involved in the cowardly act would be very soon exposed.
“Shabir Ahmad Shah is a symbol of resistance movement. His whole life is full of sacrifices for the,” said Yasmeen in a statement, adding that the assault on him is tantamount to assault on whole pro-movement leadership.
The chairman of Peoples Political Party Er Hlial Ahmad War condemned the attack.
Condemning the attack, the Jammu Kashmir Peoples’ League leader Mukhtar Ahmad Waza termed it assault on whole Kashmiri leadership.
In a statement Waza said that attack on Shah and others near Khanyar was a preplanned move by some familiar faces who are donning robes of Azadi.
The chairman of Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement Zaffar Akbar Bhat and vice-chairman Tufail Altaf Bhat condemned the attack and termed it as the handiwork of agencies and anti-movement elements to put under pressure the freedom loving leaders and activists.
