Dal Khalsa on Wednesday expressed grief over the demise of Chairman of Tehrek-e-Hurriyat Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai at a Jammu hospital.
Leaders of Dal Khalsa in a statement expressed their condolences on Sehrai’s death.
They said he was a man of principles and commitment. They prayed before the Almighty to give strength to family members, Hurriyat colleagues and people of Kashmir to bear the loss of their true representative.
Party Spokesman Kanwar Pal Singh in a statement said Sehrai was a genuine friend of Sikhs of Punjab. He said like the people of Kashmir, they too have lost their sympathizer and supporter. Sehrai was a towering political personality, who would be remembered for sacrificing his life for the just cause of Kashmir, he said.
“Sehrai has left this world with the dream of independent and sovereign Kashmir in his eyes,” said Dal Khalsa.
Moreover, he has left his people at the time of leadership vacuum, when ailing Syed Ali Geelani was in bed and under house arrest and the majority of others under detention.
