A statement issued to Fast Kashmir the organisation in a statement said that the various commemorative functions held every year to pay tribute to the late leader over a period of one week called Hafta-e-Shahaadat – which include Majlis-e-Aisaal, Husn-e-Qir’aat competition, blood donation camps , free medical camp, seminars – stand deferred in wake of the lockdown due to coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic . Besides, the Jammu Kashmir Awami Action committee head and All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) chairman Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq continues to be under house detention since August last year.
However, the Hurriyat Conference will in a few days decide on the program for May 21 and inform people accordingly.
Shaheed-e-Millat was the son of the soil who dedicated his whole life to carrying forward the mission of his Aslaaf (pious predecessors) propagating islamic teaching and values among the masses of J&K, and tirelessly striving so that the political will of the people of J&K is realised and they live a life of dignity. He was a great advocate of peace for entire people of the subcontinent which he believed was the key to its prosperity.
Tragically , while pursuing this mission, Shaheed-e-Millat sacrificed his life on May 21, 1990 at the young age of 46 and Kashmir lost a great visionary and selfless leader
Jammu Kashmir Awami Action committee appeals people to remember the life and sacrifice of Shaheed-e-Millat Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Farooq on his death anniversary and of all the martyrs since 1931 and pray for their magfirah in these last ten days (Ashra-e-Najaat) is Ramadhan and also pray for their highest standards in Jannah.
It also urged people to make special supplications to Almighty Allah to grant the humanity refuge from the ongoing deadly outbreak of coronavirus.
