Srinagar, Dec 04 : The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference rank and file on Sunday paid glowing tributes to Baba-e-Qoum Sher-e-Kashmir Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah on his 117th birth anniversary, calling him a man of iron determination.
The party leaders in their tributes said, “Life of Sher-e-Kashmir has something of interest for everyone. When we remember Sher-e-Kashmir, we recall his magical grip on the hearts and minds of masses to whose marked historical and cultural individuality, he gave a political expression during his life time.”
“A Colossus, who build the men and the women, dwarfed by years of servitude, into a people worthy of motherland by piloting them out of proverbial poverty, and deprivation,” they said adding, “Sheikh Sahib wended his way through troubles, tribulations and incarcerations on the march to the establishment of new order, which knew no exploitation and guaranteed equal social, economic, and political status for all.”
The functionaries said, “Thus the story of struggle for emancipation in J&K is inextricably woven into the life of Sheikh Sahib, who piloted it through a torturous course to its fulfilment. Every hardship that came his way steeled his resolve not to submit to anyone and strengthened his faith in the supremacy of the moral force,” adding, “The vision and mission of the tallest of all Kashmiris, who rode the crest of the popular upsurge and grew out of the storm will continue to guide us. In them we find various aspects of life distilled through his intimate experience and an undercurrent of a craving for dignity of man. He, along with his numerous colleagues initiated a movement that aimed at affording all opportunities, and facilities to the toiling masses irrespective of religion or region. Our case continues to stand on that unique footing even today with an unchangeable claim to restoration of people’s dignity, and their democratic and constitutional rights.”
