Srinagar: The Pakistan controlled Kashmir (PcK) government has formed a panel to oversee the construction of a “martyrs’ memorial” proposed by Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani last month to “honour those Kashmiris who sacrificed their lives in pursuit of freedom.”
In a letter written to the PcK Prime Minister, Chaudary Abdul Majeed on February 9, Geelani had proposed that the PcK government should construct a memorial in memory of “martyrs of Jammu and Kashmir.”
“Your suggestion is most welcome and I have formed a committee headed by Finance, Planning and Development Minister Chaudhary Latif Akbar which will choose the place for constructing the memorial, oversee its design and monitor the construction work,” Majeed said in a letter to Geelani.
The PcK Prime Minister added that, as proposed by Geelani, the “martyrs memorial would be unique in its design as compared to the memorials constructed in Western countries, and would remind the coming generations about the sacrifices of people of Jammu and Kashmir for freedom.”
“The Azad Jammu and Kashmir government is the representative of the people of the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir and as such it is my national duty to take steps for recognition of the sacrifices of our brothers for the national cause of freedom,” he said.
