Srinagar, Nov 3: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah visited the residence of Senior party leader and Former Legislature Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi on the occasion of 22nd martyrdom anniversary of his father and noted Islamic scholar Aga Syed Mehdi Al-Musawi Al-Safavi.
The party President was accompanied by party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, Addl General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal, Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani, Chief Spokesperson Tanvir Sadiq, District President Kupwara Qaisar Jamsheed Lone.
Joined in by party functionaries, Dr Farooq Abdullah offered Fateha prayers and supplication for peace to the departed soul of the veteran leader in the highest realms of Jannat.
Recollecting late Aga Sahib’s contribution in public life, Dr Farooq said, “He was devotedly and deeply loved and admired by people. He is gone, but he continues to live by virtue of his scholarly endowments, political foresight and sheer amount of good work that he rendered for the people. I pray to the Almighty to elevate his stations in Jannat.”
He also said that he had met the veteran leader in Jammu days before the fateful blast took away his life. “As usually most part of our discussion was focussed on ending strife in the region. I could make out that he was very concerned with the developments in the region. His vision was that of a just and equitable society, that he emphasised on unfailingly that day as well. The jinxed fate of our region snatched such a brave leader from us too soon. I hope and pray his worthy son Aga Ruhullah Sahib accomplishes his dreams in the days and years ahead,” he added.
