Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani, has said that the Indian agencies are involved in the killing of Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem, a member of APHC Executive Council and Secretary General of Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e Islami.

Syed Ali Geelani said that the Indian secret agencies were reviving the Ikhwan culture in the Kashmir Valley.

In an emergency meeting of the APHC on Tuesday, Syed Ali Geelani while paying glorious tributes to Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem termed it as a personnel loss for himself. “I am deeply pained by the killing of Nadeem. I express my condolence to the bereaved family,” he said. We are shocked over death of Yousuf Nadeem by brute hands and his untimely demise has created a void, the APHC Chairman said and added that he was a legend par excellence. “We stand with the grieved family and we express our deep and heartfelt condolences and pray for his heavenly abode,” he said.

Meanwhile, on the directions of Syed Ali Geelani, the APHC organized a condolence meeting at Sindhipora in Budgam and Executive Council members including Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, Nisar Hussain Rather, Gulshan Abbas, Advocate Muhammad Shafi Rishi, Muhammad Shafi Lone, Syed Muhammad Shafi, Ghulam Muhammad Nagu, Muhammad Yasin Atai, Muhammad Yousuf Mujahid, Syed Imtiaz Haider, Peer Abdul Rasheed, Bashir Ahmed Butt, Muhammad Maqbool and several others paid rich tributes to Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem for his praiseworthy contributions for the resistance movement. The leaders and mourners while hailing the services rendered by Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem said that he was a torch-bearer of the ongoing freedom movement.

“These cowardly and brutal state sponsored tactics won’t deter us from pursuing the mission, nor will these suppressive and aggressive measures will force us to surrender. We will take our mission to its logical end and despite these killings by agencies, the resistance movement won’t stop and will move ahead with its cherished mission till we achieve our goal,” they added.

The APHC has called a condolence meeting of its constituent parties and other resistance organisations on Thursday (February 15) at 11 am at the residence of the slain leader.
