In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) leaders have paid glowing tributes to prominent Kashmiri leader, Shaheed-e-Azeemat Sheikh Abdul Aziz, on the eve of his 14th martyrdom anniversary.

Illegally detained APHC Vice Chairman, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, in a message sent from New Delhi’s infamous Tihar jail in Srinagar highlighting the contribution and sacrifices of the martyred leader for the ongoing Kashmir freedom movement said that Sheikh Abdul Aziz was truly a man of honesty and integrity who devoted his entire life for the Kashmir cause.

Senior APHC leader, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, in his message from Tihar Jail said that Sheikh Abdul Aziz championed the Kashmir cause throughout his life and even rendered the ultimate sacrifice for this purpose.

He said that contribution and sacrifices of the martyred leader in the freedom movement were unforgettable.

APHC leader, Syed Bashir Andrabi, in a statement issued in Srinagar paying homage to Sheikh Aziz reaffirmed the Kashmiris’ resolve to accomplish the mission of their martyrs at all costs.
