Jammu and Kashmir High court Bar Association is deeply upset on the sentence of two years imprisonment awarded to Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai Chairman Kashmir American Council by an American Jury and feels that the punishment is inappropriate and politically motivated to appease India by the present Obama Administration.
In a meeting held by the Bar Association on 02.04.2012, in this regard, the members expressed their solidarity with Dr. Fai who has been advocating the cause of the Kashmir freedom struggle at diplomatic front and voicing against the human sufferings of the people of Jammu and Kashmir before the World Community for the past more than 30 years. It was felt that Dr. Fai’s relentless efforts and contributions in regard to espousing the cause of people of Jammu and Kashmir is a golden chapter and unforgettable part in the history of Jammu and Kashmir. It was decided that the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association would appeal to all the humanitarian agencies and law makers of the USA to stand against the punishment awarded to Dr. Fai for his diplomatic activities to promote the cause of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, as the punishment is unfair, unjust and inappropriate. The remarks made by the Hon’ble Judge while announcing the sentence was found to be biased and politically motivated. The people of Jammu and Kashmir being worst sufferers in this part of the globe due to State repression perpetuated by the Govt. of India as such awarding the sentence to Dr. Fai at this stage was felt to encourage the brute hands of Indian repression in Kashmir.
Commemorating the martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed Ashfaq Majid Wani and Dr. Abdul Ahad Guroo who laid their lives for the freedom cause in the initial stages of the current phase of our freedom struggle, rich tributes were paid to both of them. Shaheed Ashfaq Majid Wani who is the founding father and inspiration and who nourished the freedom struggle with his red hot blood will be remembered in all-times to come. The people of Jammu and Kashmir irrespective of their political beliefs will always hold Shaheed Ahsfaq Majid Wani in high esteem and as a National hero.
Dr. Abdul Ahad Guroo was a great patriotic and man of vision who despite his professional engagements tried his best to glow the freedom struggle with his intellectual inputs. The biggest tribute to Dr. Abdul Ahad Guroo, it was stated, would be to stand by the cause of the people and carry forward the mission of the martyrs to its logical end.
Bar Association appeals at this moment to all sections of the society particularly the intellectual class to come forward without any fear or favour in espousing the cause of the people so as to reduce the human sufferings of people of Jammu and Kashmir.
