Sign the Petition

To:           The President of India,
                 The Prime minister of India,
                 The Chief Justice, Supreme Court of India,
                 The Chief Minister of Jammu Kashmir, Srinagar   

CC to:    The President of Azad Jammu Kashmir,              

                 UN Secretary General,


We, the People and the Civil Society of the State of Jammu and Kashmir, express our anguish and concern over the denial of rights of people of Jammu Kashmir to obtain the possession of the remains of their fellow subject of the state ,  Maqbool Butt to burry according to their own cultural and religious  tradition.

Maqbool Butt was killed by hanging on Feb.11, 1984 in Tihar, Delhi as the consequence of retaliation expressed by that time Indian Regime. He was hanged to take the revenge of the killing of an Indian Diplomat by some unknown organization claiming to be Kashmiri. An act of shame for a country called India.   Even after His Death, his body was not handed over to his family and people, rather buried in Tihar Jail, Delhi. People and civil society of Jammu Kashmir do respect him for his legendary struggle for the restoration of freedom in Kashmir. He is now hero of our nation.  To pay tribute to Maqbool Butt, People of Srinagar have already built and reserve a grave for him in Martyrs Grave Yard of Eidgah, Srinagar. But his formal burial is still awaited.

We Demand:

  • Government of India to behave and understand the feelings of the people and civil society of Jammu Kashmir about Maqbool Butt.
  • Government of India to Hand over remains of Shaheed e Kashmir for proper burial.
  • Secretary General of United Nation to use his influence to convince govt. of India for release of remains of Maqbool But
  • President of Azad Kashmir and Chief Minister of Jammu Kashmir to take appropriate measure to obtain the remains of Shaheed e Kashmir.
