AAC condoles demise of Haji Abdul Sattaar Gagru, pays tribute to him

Srinagar, Sep 14 (KNO): Jammu and Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) Tuesday expressed grief and sorrow over the demise of Haji Abdul Sattaar Gagru, resident of Kadi Kadal, Srinagar, who was a long-time and senior member of the organisation, a well-wisher of the Mirwaiz Family and a respected personality of the city.

Paying tributes to Haji Abdul Sattaar for his selfless contribution towards the organisation, movement and Kashmiri society especially in Shahr-e-Khaas, AAC in a statement issued to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) said that when its founder Shaheed-e-Millat (RA) and the entire leadership were imprisoned in 1965, the late Haji Abdul Sattaar was also arrested as he was an enthusiastic and a vigorous activist, due to which he also faced hardships and interrogation.

The statement said that apart from the personal devotion and love of the Mirwaizeen-e-Kashmir especially the Mufasir-e-Quran Muhajir-e-Millat Mirwaiz Moulana Muhammad Yusuf Shah (RA), Shaheed-e-Millat Mirwaiz Moilvi Muhammad Farooq (RA) and the present Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, the AAC praised the deceased for his deep devotion and attachment with Jama Masjid Srinagar and his sincere efforts to promote the sermons of Mirwaizeen-e-Kashmir.

On the demise of the late Haji Abdul Sattaar, the AAC and its head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been under house arrest since August 5, 2019, have expressed sorrow and grief, terming the demise as a great loss.

They also paid rich tribute to his services and expressed condolences and sympathy with the deceased's sons Abdul Hameed Gagru, Shabir Ahmed Gagru, Mushtaq Ahmed Gagru and Javeed Ahmed Gagru.

Haji Abdul Sattaar had wished that his Namaaz-e-Janaazah should be led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who unfortunately due to continuous incarceration was unable to do so. However the funeral prayers of the deceased were held inside the premises of Jama Masjid Srinagar which was attended by a large number of people apart from the organisation's senior members. Haji Abdul Sattaar was buried in his ancestral graveyard amid moist eyes—(KNO)
