On the morning of 9th February 2013, the Indian State secretly hanged Shaheed Afzal Guru, while Kashmir was put under strict curfew the night before, to satisfy the so-called “collective conscience of the (Indian) society”.

Afzal’s murder only added to the list of hundreds of thousands of Martyrs who have laid down their lives for the cause of Kashmir’s Freedom Struggle. Afzal was the second person to be hanged and buried in Delhi’s Tihar Jail, after Maqbool Bhat, who was executed on the 11th of February 1984.

The world has seen that Kashmir did not forget Maqbool. Kashmir will never forget Afzal, and neither any of its known and unknown Martyrs. Rather, the sacrifice has only strengthened the people’s resolve to resist the brutal occupation of their land with renewed zeal.

Afzal is Maqbool to Us.

Coming Sunday, 9th of February 2014, which is the first anniversary of Afzal Guru’s Martyrdom, CRPP invites you to a public meeting at the Plenary Auditorium, Indian Law Institute, Bhagwan Das Road, Opposite Supreme Court of India, New Delhi.
The meeting will start 1:00 pm onwards.
