Srinagar, June 14 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani and other Hurriyat leaders and organizations have extended greetings to the Muslims in Kashmir and around the world on Eidul Fitr.

Syed Ali Gilani in his message said, “Eid is the day of expressing gratitude to Almighty Allah and seeking His blessings.” He urged people to remember the destitute section of the society on the auspicious occasion. “We should not forget the families, orphans and widows of those people who have sacrificed their precious lives for the better future of their brethren. We have to be extremely kind to the families who had miserably suffered during the ongoing freedom struggle of Kashmir,” Syed Ali Gilani said.

He added that the Kashmiri people have so far missed the real spirit of the Eid day because of the atrocities and the cruel behavior of the Indian occupational forces towards the common people in the territory.

Referring to the horrendous situation in the occupied territory, the APHC Chairman said, “We are facing extreme situation. It is very unfortunate that we are carrying and receiving the coffins of our youngsters. Our dignity and honour are at stake and situation in Kashmir has only multiplied our sorrows and it is quite heart wrenching to see the increasing number of widows and orphans.”

Other Hurriyat leaders and organizations including Agha Syed Hassn Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Zafar Akbar Butt, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Farida Behanji, Imtiaz Ahmad Reshi, Nisar Hussain Rather, Democratic Freedom Party and Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League in their statemens also extended Eid greetings to the Kashmiri Muslims. They appealed them to remember martyrs, their families, prisoners, orphans, widows, destitute and other victims of the occupation while celebrating the Eid.

Meanwhile, pellet victims have made an appeal for financial help on Eidul Fitr. The pellet victims under Pellet Victim Welfare Trust (PVWT) in a statement said that they had been economically drained due to high cost of treatment. “Our organization is not a funded organization. We depend on the support of common people. Over 1200 pellet victims are in our group, who come from poor families and couldn’t afford medicines and other treatment charges,” said Mohammad Ashraf, a 28-year-old pellet victim of the group.

The United Jihad Council in a statement impressed upon the affluent people to come forward and help the needy and poor so that they can also be part of Eid celebrations. “There are thousands of poor, destitute, orphans, widows, families with disappeared kith and kin. Such people don’t have any mode of income. We must help them and bring smile on their faces,” the statement said while quoting the UJC Chief, Syed Salahuddin.
