Islamabad/  MIRPUR [AJK],  (Parliament Times) : President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry paid rich tributes to prominent liberation leader Syed Ali Gilani for his matchless sacrifices and indomitable role in the Kashmiris’ ongoing struggle for right to self-determination.

The president expressed these views while addressing an event organized by Friends of Kashmir on the occasion of the first anniversary of Syed Ali Gilani here on Thursday.
Highlighting the deceased leader’s supreme sacrifices, Barrister Chaudhary said that Gilani went through trials and tribulations throughout his life and endured hardships at an unprecedented scale during his decades-long period of imprisonments and incarcerations.
“I have had the privilege of meeting Syed Ali Geelani several times when I visited Srinagar where he was put under house arrest”, he said adding that the courage and perseverance with which he spearheaded the resistance movement speak volumes about his commitment to the noble cause of freedom.
“It was his unwavering commitment and steadfastness that kept the torch of freedom alive in Kashmir”, the president said.
Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry further said that late Gilani always struggled to strengthen the ongoing freedom movement and foster unity within the rank and file of Hurriyat.
He said that the entire Kashmiri leadership on both sides of the line of control was united on one point agenda, which he said was the freedom of Kashmir from India’s illegal occupation.
