Washington, May 01, 2021 (PPI-OT): The Secretary General of Washington-based World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF), Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai, has expressed profound grief and sorrow over the sad demise of renowned Kashmiri intellectual, scholar, writer and freedom-fighter, G. M. Mir.

G. M. Mir, who hailed from Mirpur, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, was also the President of the Jammu Kashmir Plebiscite Front. He passed away yesterday and was laid to rest in Abbottabad. Thousands of people from different shades of opinion attended his funeral prayers.

Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai in a statement issued in Washington paid glowing tributes to G. M. Mir. He said, “Mir Sahib was an intellectual, scholar, writer and above all a giant freedom-fighter. He was a person of vision, selfless advocate and always pro-Kashmir, the moral high ground was everything to him. His formula for Kashmir was simple but powerful – The aspirations of the Kashmiri people must be ascertained.”

Dr Fai said that G. M. Mir was persistent in his demand and wrote more than 10 books on the subject. He prayed Allah Almighty to rest the departed soul in eternal peace and grant courage to the bereaved family to bear this loss with forbearance.
