Early Times Report
srinagar, Jan 10: Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is bearing the expenses for the maintenance of 'martyrs' graveyard' at Eidgah in old city Srinagar where his father Mirwaiz Moulana Farooq and his killer are also buried.
As the conflict in Kashmir is taking a heavy toll on the lives of people, the 'martyrs graveyard' is shrinking fast. These days it is being expended on the directions of senior separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to accommodate more who fall victim to the conflict.
But what surprised is that Moulvi Farooq and his killer Abdullah Bangroo are buried in the same graveyard. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq's father Moulvi Farooq was assassinated by Bangroo in 1990. But after Bangroo was killed, he was also buried in the same graveyard. It is Moulvi Farooq's son Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is heading the Hurriyat Conference (M) is bearing expanses for maintenance of the graveyard.
Senior separatist leader Professor Abdul Gani Bhat has earlier said that: "Lone sahib, Mirwaiz [Mohammad] Farooq, and Professor Wani were not killed by the Army or the police. They were targeted by our own people. The story is a long one, but we have to tell the truth."
Despite
Irony!
Moulvi Farooq and his killer Abdullah Bangroo are buried in the same graveyard. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq's father Moulvi Farooq was assassinated by Bangroo in 1990. But after Bangroo was killed, he was also buried in the same graveyard. It is Moulvi Umar Farooq's son Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is heading the Hurriyat Conference (M) is bearing expenses for maintenance of the graveyard.
hat's admission, the separatist remained silent. And now the graveyard is being expanded and developed by Mirwaiz where Mirwaiz father's killer is also buried.
Prof Bhat, who is a part of Hurriyat (M) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has recently criticized the separatists for giving shutdown calls and has said these people were only keeping the pot boiling and their politics only bringing inconveniences to the people.
"This is open truth who killed Moulvi Farooq. But the irony is that both the killer and the victim have been buried as martyrs here," said a local Ghulam Mohammad. "How can a killer be treated in a same way as of a martyr. It is a sheer hypocrisy on part of separatists."
The idea of 'martyrs' graveyard was conceived by locals of Eidgah in 1989 when 10 to 15 would get killed on an average daily in the Valley. This plot of land, now encased in concrete and iron, used to be part of a vast playground.
But people are unhappy that both the murderers and victims are buried there. "The separatists should make it clear whether the militant killed the innocent or not. But they are silent and giving same respect to both," said Mohammad Shafi, a resident of Khanyar.
