IOK: Complete shutdown observed to mark martyrdom anniversary of Afzal Guru

In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown is being observed today, to mark the sixth martyrdom anniversary of Kashmiri leader, Muhammad Afzal Guru.

Call for the shutdown has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

The leadership has also called for shutdown in the territory and a march towards Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Monday to press the demand for return of the mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru and renowned Kashmiri liberation leader, Muhammad Maqbool Butt, from New Delhi’s Tihar Jail to occupied Kashmir for decent burial.

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