Indian authorities hanged Muhammad Afzal Guru this day in 2013.

However, Indian authorities had not handed over his body to the heirs but buried that in the premises of the jail.

On Thursday, Kashmiris will commemorate the martyrdom anniversaries of prominent freedom leader Muhammad Maqbool Butt.

Moreover, the APHC lauded the sacrifices which Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru rdnered.

Besides, it also praised other martyrs and said they would continue to serve as a beacon of light in the dark night of Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, the APHC posters read the unresolved Kashmir dispute as the biggest hurdle to peace and political stability in the South Asian region.

They urged the UN to take steps for peaceful settlement of the dispute.

India had hanged Maqbool Butt and Afzal Guru in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail on 9th February, 2013 and 11th February, 1984, respectively.

Their bodies remain buried in the premises of the jail.
