Zafar pays tributes to Jammu martyrs
Srinagar, Nov 4: Chairman of the Salvation Movement Zafar Akbar Bhat has paid glowing tributes to the Muslims who were massacred in Jammu in 1947.
“People in Jammu have faced the wrath of secessionist elements. They laid their lives for a pious and sacred cause and were brutally massacred by the evil forces for no fault of theirs. We feel their pain and our heartfelt sympathies are with the people of Jammu,” Zafar said in a statement. Zafar also paid tributes to the martyrs of Saida Kadal. He also expressed his grief over the death of mother of Shaheed Aurangzeb.
Zafar also castigated the government for the ongoing LPG crisis and unscheduled power cuts in the Valley. “In severe cold people are facing difficulties. We cannot tolerate this and we will raise our voice against injustice done to common people,” he said.
Meanwhile, Zafar condoled the demise of former secretary Education Muhammad Amin Laharwal and expressed sympathy with the bereaved family.
