Muzaffarabad: Chairman Pasban-e-Hurriyat Uzair Ahmad Ghazali has said that restrictions on the funeral of Syed Ali Gillani and the lawsuits against his family are disgraceful scars on the so-called democratic face of India.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, he said that Ali Shah Gillani fought for independence from India till the last breath of his life.
Ghazali reiterated that people of Jammu and Kashmir will complete the unfinished mission of their great leader and the historic struggle of Baba-e-Hurriyat will surely succeed.
While paying tribute to Syed Ali Gillani, he said that Syed Ali Gillani will always be remembered as a great leader as he continously struggled for the freedom and rights of the oppressed, subjugated, and oppressed Kashmiri people in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
“He dedicated five decades of his life for the independence of the state”, he maintained.
Ghazali condemned the forceful burial of Syed Ali Gillani, saying that seizing the corpse at gunpoint and forcibly burying it in the dark is an ugly stain on the face of India’s so-called fake democracy.
Uzair stated that religious duties for the burial of veteran Hurriyat leader has been violated by preventing the masses from attending his funeral.
He said that the registration of cases against the family of Syed Ali Gillani was an act of panic and open permission to spread terrorism in IOK by the rulers of India.
“Syed Ali Gillani always raised his voice for dignity and human rights in Palestine, Bosnia, Chechniya, Burma and all over the world particularly in Indian Occupied Kashmir” he added.
