Militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen on Monday paid rich tribute to Dawood Ahmed Sheikh who was killed in a gunfight with government forces in south Kashmir's Kulgam district.
As per Hizb statement to CNS, the tribute was paid during the meeting of Hizb Command Council that was presided by outfit Chief Syed Salahuddin. "Though the martyrdom of Dawood is a big loss but his sacrifice will play a key role in ending the Indian occupation in Kashmir," the statement quoted the Hizb Chief.
Salahuddin also paid rich tribute to its four slain commanders on their 19th death anniversary. "Ghazi Naseebuddin, Engineer Firdous Kirmani, Ghazi Iliyas and Manzoor Ahmed Khan were not only well trained educated militants but their hearts were also filled with the love for the freedom of Kashmir. The new generation of militants is following their foot prints to take the ongoing freedom movement to its logical conclusion," Salahuddin said.
He advised Hurriyat leadership and militants to be vigilant about what he said the presence of 'black sheep.' "The blood of youth will not go waste and the movement will continue till it is taken to its final destination," he said.
