Observe 15th august as a black day. kashmiri’s love freedom but necessary to convey to India that it has by force snatched our freedom: Yasin Malik
Srinagar: Kashmiris striving for the blessings of freedom desire for the real peace and prosperity of the world. Who will be more familiar with the taste of freedom and the bitterness of slavery than Kashmiri nation that has been sacrificing and striving for freedom for last six decades? This was stated by the chairman of Jammu Kashmir liberation front Mohammad Yasin Malik in a press statement in regard to the martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed I Azeemat Sheikh Abdul Aziz and 15th august, the independence day of India .while remembering Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Aziz, Yasin sahib said that he was a man of will and dedication who till his last strived for the cause of Kashmir. Paying rich tributes to Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Aziz, Yasin termed him a thorough gentleman, freedom lover and selfless leader. Yasin said that the martyrdom of Shaheed Aziz sahib strengthened the peaceful people’s revolution in Kashmir and this nation will always remember him and his sacrifices. Yasin said that the day of his martyrdom 11th august will always be remembered .Yasin said that in 1947 the Indian sub- continent got freedom from the British rule. India also got freedom on 15th august 1947.India gained this freedom after enormous sacrifices and struggle. For achieving freedom Indian nation sacrificed its thousands of men, women and tolerated the torture and oppression at the hands of British. The sacrifices given by this nation for freedom should have been enough motivation for the Indian nation and its leadership to recognize and honor the freedom of other nations. India should have been a torch bearer of freedom and champion of human rights but alas! It is totally opposite. Only few days after getting its freedom Indian nation over powered a tiny nation called Kashmir and with its military might snatch its freedom and subjugated its people. India subjected Kashmiri to same oppression, tyranny and inhuman treatment that was being done to her by British And that too without any fear or shame. Yasin said that when Kashmiri’s resisted this forced domination India went to United Nations and promised before the whole world that Kashmiri’s will be provided a chance to choose their fate. Even India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru promised the same in India parliament and Lal Chowk Srinagar while addressing people. But when Kashmiri’s tried to remind India of its promises they were and are being subjected to worst kind of oppression. From The hanging of Shaheed Baba I Qoum Mohammad Maqbool Butt in Tihar Jail on 1984 to the martyrdom of Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Aziz in 2008 and also the martyrdom of our lakh’s of people bear a testimony to this historical fact. Yasin said that Kashmiri’s are freedom loving and they want every nation to taste and enjoy freedom but a nation that has snatched our freedom, which has subjugated us and oppressed our tiny poor nation, should realize that it has no right to do so. For this very purpose Kashmiri’s living across the globe remember 15th August as a black day .kashmiris through their peaceful protest, strike and other programs on this day try to remind India and the world that Kashmir still remains bleeding and That resolving this issue is in the favor of lasting peace, brotherhood ,development and stability of the world. Yasin said that the day will be observed as a black day this year too and Kashmiri’s by observing complete shutdown on the day will reiterate their commitment towards the freedom struggle. Appealing people to observe coming Eid ul Fitr with modesty, Yasin Malik said that while celebrating Eid we all will have to remember those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of Jammu Kashmir and those who were martyred by tyrants.
