Srinagar: Sher-e- Kashmir’s struggle is an open book and he will always be remembered as a leader, teacher, guide friend and philosopher for his contributions in taking the common masses out of abject poverty and subjugation after hundreds of years .Be it the land to the tiller, free education ,emancipation of women, setting up of universities in Jammu and Kashmir, laying of infrastructure for roads, hospitals, education centers with all round developmental programmes for all the three regions of the State. There is no parallel in the world to such contributions from a leader towards his People. This was stated by ANC chief Begum Khalida Shah while paying floral tributes to her late father on his 38th Death Anniversary being observed today throughout Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh for his unforgettable services to the downtrodden people of Jammu and Kashmir State.
Begum Khalida Shah further stated that the BJP and RSS are hell-bent to change the demographic character of Jammu and Kashmir State and the drama of abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35 A was the first step towards that goal conceived by the erstwhile Jana-Sangh , now the RSS .The massive majority of Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh division will never accept this unilateral decision implemented through the barrel of the gun and gross violation of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir State and the Constitution of India.
Begum Khalida Shah further stated that the best tribute we all can pay to the Late Leader is to ensure that the decision to abolish Article 370 and Article 35 A is revoked and the un- finished task of Late Sher-e –Kashmir for a just and fair solution to the vexed Kashmir problem is realized and the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir are treated as of paramount importance by both the Governments of India and Pakistan.
Begum Khalida Shah and Sr.Vice President Muzaffar Shah along with ANC General Secretary and ANC Central office bearers went to Sher-e –Kashmir ‘s mausoleum to offer prayers and Fathe-Khawani to the great Leader. Floral tributes were paid by ANC at all district head quarters of Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh
