Remains of Maqbool, Guru belong to Kashmir: Salahuddin

 

Srinagar, February 19, 2013 (PPI-OT): The Chairman of the United Jihad Council, Syed Salahuddin has said that mortal remains of Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru and Shaheed Muhammad Maqbool Butt belong to Kashmir’s soil and will one day return to it. He said that we would continue to demand the return of remains through popular movement but never request or beg for them, as it did not suit the stature of a martyr.

A local news agency quoted Syed Salahuddin as having said, “We should not turn to them beseeching for return of the body. Seeking such favours from the murderers does not look good.”

However, he asked Kashmiris to continue with their just demand of return of the body and mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Butt.

“We should and will continue to demand the return through popular movement but never request or beg for it,” he added.

He said the hanging of Afzal Guru has given a new lease of life to the ongoing movement in Kashmir. “He (Guru) has attained a high stature for which we should be proud. The mortal remains of Shaheed Afzal and Shaheed Maqbool Butt belong to Kashmir’s soil and will one day return to it,” the UJC Chief said.

He also condemned the raid on the house of Mushtaq Ahmad Zargar and harassment of inmates
