"Those who relate Kashmiri struggle with unemployment and lack of education should think over the life, struggle and martyrdom of Shaheed- i- Hikamt Doctor Abdul Ahad Guru who was highly educated and a reputed heart surgeon but joined Kashmir struggle and laid his life for the sacred cause. People of Jammu Kashmir are indebted to martyrs like Dr Guru who sacrificed their today for the betterment of our tomorrow," Malik said in a statement.  

"Dr Guru was an exceptional personality who not only left his mark on medical, political and religious fronts but worked relentlessly on social fronts through his philanthropic works. The people like him are crown of nations and the personalities like these stand as a symbol of glory for the living nations," the spokesman said. 

He said, "Kashmir is yet to produce anyone like Dr Guru. He was first Kashmiri doctor who started open heart surgery in Kashmir and wrote a new chapter in the medical history of this poor nation. His efforts to turn Soura medical institute into a well established heath center are also well known. His relentless work for educating new doctors and elevating them to new heights was unparallel."
