Srinagar, February 10 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed and a march will be conducted towards the UN office at Sonawar in Srinagar, tomorrow, to mark the martyrdom anniversary of prominent Kashmiri liberation leader, Muhammad Maqbool Butt.

Call for the shutdown and march has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik to press the demand for the return of the mortal remains of Muhammad Maqbool Butt and another Kashmiri leader, Muhammad Afzal Guru to their families.

India had hanged Muhammad Maqbool Butt in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail on 11th February in 1984 and Muhammad Afzal Guru in the same jail on 9th February, 2013, for their role in the Kashmir freedom movement. Their bodies remain buried in the premises of the jail.

The puppet authorities have put Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Bilal Siddiqi, Muhammad Ashraf Laya, Umar Aadil Dar and Syed Imtiaz Haider under house arrest or in detention to prevent them from leading the march.
