Srinagar, Dec 14 : Paying rich and glowing tributes to late Islamic Scholar and former Ameer (Chief) of Hizbul Mujahideen, Shaheed Shams-ul-Haq on his 25th martyrdom anniversary, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that people like Shaheed Shams-ul-Haq are assets of the ongoing freedom struggle.
In a statement issued to KNS, DFP termed Shaheed Shams-ul-Haq as a brave soldier of freedom and man with strong and clear ideology. The statement said that the resistance movement has been nourished by highly educated people like Shaheed Shams-ul-Haq who had three Masters Degrees in his credit in three different subjects.
We must renew our stand that our great martyrs have already fixed the goals of the ongoing movement so there must be no confusion, the statement said. It added that the goal of freedom can only be achieved by following great values and virtues because we are fighting a cause based on the moral and ethical ideology.
The statement said that our movement is actually a war between right and wrong, oppressed and oppressor, we must be very clear about these basics so that nobody could hijack our goal which has been fixed by our martyrs like Shaheed Shams-ul-Haq.
DFP stressed upon people to stand for the protection of the cause of martyrs which is possible only by exhibiting steadfastness.
The Freedom Party statement said that Kashmiris are not against dialogue but dialogue for the sake of mere meetings and issuing mere statements cannot help in resolving the long standing Kashmir dispute. The resolution process needs maturity, courage and truthfulness. This also has been the basis of ailing and incarcerated Democratic Freedom Party chief Shabir Ahmad Shah. (KNS)
