Ashfaq Majeed’s unity efforts still relevant: Malik..

Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front chairman Yasin Malik said on Friday that unity was the key, and disunity detrimental, to the success of the struggle.
“The main success of the people’s revolution for freedom in 1990 was in fact its unique unity and oneness and the entire world saw Kashmiris on roads and streets in thousands demanding freedom with one voice,” a spokesman of the Front quoted Malik as telling a large public gathering in Anchar, Soura.Malik said that in 1990, legendary JKLF leader Ishfaq Majeed Wani “led a people’s revolution” and at the very outset realised the importance of unity among the Ummah.
“He along with his other friends visited every important leader and person and strived hard to forge unity among them and to a large extent succeed in his endeavor,” Malik said.
Wani said Majeed’s unity doctrine was still relevant and dear to JKLF, which has always strived for unity and impressed upon its importance for “attaining freedom”.Describing Majeed as a “born leader”, Malik said, “He was my childhood friend and first commander in chief of Kashmiri freedom struggle. The days and years of his life from 6 September 1966 to 30 March 1990 are shining marks of his prominence. He was a humble slave of almighty Allah who tried to take his every step was for truth and justice. He was a symbol of courage, fearlessness, piety, passion and resistance against the illegal occupation, injustice and tyranny.”
Malik said Majeed, an alumnus of Tyndale Biscoe school and an intellectual, was a follower of the Quran and Sunnah, “a heroic commander, a wise political leader, a refined diplomat, a fiery speaker, a respected student and a great athlete”.
“Above all he was an inspiring personality who had the courage to call a spade a spade and look into the eyes of the tyrant and oppressors and fight against it with firmness,” he added.
Malik said JKLF is “an ideology and romance for freedom”.
“This is why history finds its leaders right from the Father of Nation Muhammad Maqbool Butt to Shaheed-I-Kashmir Ishfaq Majeed Wani in first row at the time of rendering sacrifice and today when we are recalling the sacrifice of our beloved leader we reiterate our pledge to take his mission forward at every cost,” the statement said.
The statement said that Majeed’s leadership in 1988 gave courage to thousands of young men to “stand up for the cause of freedom and independence”.
“He led this people’s revolution in 1990 and changed the 5000 year old history of Kashmir. It was his leadership that unified a nation which was tagged as coward and inactive for a just cause and history bears a witness that thousands of young people followed Ishfaq Majeed Wani and sacrificed their lives for the freedom of their nation and till today this process of sacrifices is going on unabated and on daily basis and our young heroes are sacrificing their lives for the righteous cause,” the statement said.
Malik also paid homage to Shabir Ahmad Sidiqi and those who were also killed during the Dargah, Hazratbal siege of the nineties.
“Shaheed Sidiqi sahib was a religious scholar of immense importance and a man of wisdom who strived and sacrificed his life for the freedom of Kashmir. He will also be remembered for his philanthropy and work in the field of education and religion,” he said.
The statement said that a prayer meeting was held in connection with the “martyrdom day of Ashfaq Majeed Wani, Shabir Sidiqi, doctor Abdul Ahad Guru and advocate Jalil Andrabi, Shuhada-i-Hazratbal and other martyrs at Martyrs Graveyard (Mazar-i- Shuhada) Eid Gah.
“Led by JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, a large number of people, admirers of great martyrs along with various JKLF leaders and activists participated in the prayers meeting,” the spokesman said.
