Don’t beg for return of martyrs’ bodies: Salahuddin

Srinagar, Feb 18:  The Chairman of the United Jehad Council Chairman Syed Salahuddin on Monday called on Kashmiris in general and family of Afzal Guru in particular not to ‘beseech for return of his body’.
 “Requesting and applying for return of his body or mortal remains does not suit the stature of a martyr. We should not turn to them beseeching for return of the body. Seeking such favours from the murderers does not look good,” a local news agency KNS quoted Salahuddin as having said. 
 However, he asked Kashmiris to continue with their just demand of return of the body and mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Bhat. “We should and will continue to demand the return through popular movement but never request or beg for it,” he added.
 He said the hanging of Afzal Guru has given a new lease of life to the ongoing movement in Kashmir. “He (Guru) has attained a high stature for which we should be proud. The mortal remains of Shaheed Afzal and Shaheed Maqbool Bhat belong to Kashmir’s soil and will one day return to it”, the UJC Chief said.
 He said the resistance movement should be intensified in a phased manner against Afzal’s hanging and for demanding return of the body to his family. “United leadership should intensify the movement while keeping in mind the experiences of 2008, 2009 and 2010 so that people continue their support to the movement till the end. The movement should continue but in a phased manner”, he added.
 Terming recent killings, curfew, restrictions and arrests of youth by the police and forces as ‘acts of highhandedness’, the Hizb Supremo stressed upon Pak leadership to raise the issues at the international forums “to uncover the repressive measures of India before international community”.
 The Hizb Chief also condemned the alleged excesses by security forces with the family members of Al Umar Chief Mushtaq Ahmad Zargar on Saturday. He said the people of the state won’t be discouraged by such tactics of the forces. (KNS)
