SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, Nov 25: Separatist leaders, including JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, Democratic Freedom Party Chairman Shabir Ahmed Shah and others participated in Ashura (10th Muharram) processions in different parts of the Valley, while Hurriyat (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressed a Majlis at Alam Sahab in Narwara area of the old city.
JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik while addressing a Majlis-I-Ashura at Zadi Bal here said, “Imam Hussain (AS) and the family of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) sacrificed their lives at Karbala for truth, justice and morality. They stood against the tyranny to uphold the flag of justice. That is why even after hundreds of years we all identify ourselves with Hussain (AS) and not with the tyrants who fought against Hussain (AS) in Karbala,” Malik said. Later Malik led the Ashura procession.
Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressed a Majlis at Alam Sahab Narwara. “Karbala taught the whole humanity to rise against the suppression and oppression. It also shows that those people who sacrifice their lives on the path of truth ultimately win,” Mirwaiz said.
Democratic Freedom Party, Chairman Shabir Ahmed Shah participated in the Ashura procession at Budgam in central Kashmir.
Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s League, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza joined mourners at Sofipora in south Kashmir’s Islamabad district.
He condemned the restrictions imposed to stop Muharram processions. He also deplored the arrest of Hurriyat leaders including Masroor Abas Ansari.
