Chief of United Jihad Council Syed Salahuddin has paid rich tributes to Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and Muhammad Afzal Guru on their anniversaries.
"Their hangings gave a new lease of life to Kashmir struggle. All efforts were made to suppress Kashmir movement by executing Bhat and Guru but the movement surfaced with great strength," local news agency CNS quoted Syed Salhuddin as having said in a statement.
The armed struggle is going on. People are confronting Delhi to attain their objective. The 9 and 11 February remind us that justice and impartiality are subservient to Indian will," he said, adding the "sun of freedom will rise in Kashmir."
Salahuddin, according to CNS, reiterated that nobody will be allowed to compromise with the blood of youth.
