Birmingham, September 17, 2021 (PPI-OT):Condolence programmes for resistance icon against Indian occupation, Quaid-e-Hurriyat, shaheed Syed Ali Gilani, were held in different cities of UK, Denmark, Norway, Italy and Germany on the call of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK and Europe.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Kashmiris and Pakistanis in large numbers attended these events and remembered Syed Ali Gilani’s life full of struggle for not only Kashmir but for humanity as he was the voice for justice. They remembered his famous slogan “Hum Pakistani hain aur Pakistan humera hai” with passion and determination to carry his wish forward to fulfill his dream.
Addressing a condolence reference held for Syed Ali Gilani in Birmingham, the President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir, UK, Raja Fahim Kayani said Syed Ali Gilani was loved all over the world but UK has most of the Kashmiris after Kashmir was divided between Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said, Syed Ali Shah Gilani spent most part of his life in prison or trying to unite the Kashmiris to achieve freedom from India. Syed Ali Gilani, he added, had been under house arrest for last 12 years. “He was systematically murdered by the Indian government. We condemned the forcible burial of Gilani by the Indian forces against his last wishes, without his family present,” he said
Fahim Kayani deplored that an FIR was also lodged under draconian law Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against the family members of Syed Ali Gilani and others for raising pro-freedom slogans and putting Pakistani flag on his body.
Muhammad Ghalib, President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir, Europe, said, “Kashmiris feel orphaned now as Syed Ali Gilani took care of all matters like a father being the leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference for a long time in Kashmir. He has left a legacy of unflinching commitment to the Kashmir cause.”
Adeel Ahmed Aasi, President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir, Denmark, said, “We’re all Syed Ali Gilani now and will not rest till we succeed in freeing Kashmir from India and its draconian laws, which control the breaths of the innocent Kashmiris. We promise Syed Ali Gilani to fulfill his dream to free Kashmir and make it a part of Pakistan.”
The Director of Kashmir International Research Centre (KIRC) of TeK, Khawaja Muhammad Suleman said, “Modi is a replica of Hitler ideology in 21st century and he has put Kashmir under brutal Indian army siege. Modi should be prosecuted for his crimes against the humanity or the world will suffer in future.”
Rehana Ali, information Secretary of TeK, UK, said, “India once again violated the Geneva Convention’s Article 17 regarding burying a body in accordance with his/her wishes, religion and nationality but it seems that India has sworn not to let any shaheed die in peace in IIOJK. They disrespected Syed Ali Gilani shaheed the most so this ritual of the Indian forces needs to be banned. UN needs to make new laws so deceased can gain respect and peace after death.”
