NC pays tributes to Begum Akbar Jehan Abdullah on her 20th death anniversary
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference paid rich tributes to Begum Akbar Jehan Abdullah on her 20th death anniversary, terming her as a strong woman and a benevolent mother.
A spokesman of NC in a statement issued today said that party’s rank and file while paying glowing tributes to Madre Meharban said that as a leading stateswoman of her times possessing a commanding and magnetic persona, she ruled over the hearts and minds of people.
“Some of us have been blessed to have the opportunity to work with her. She has left an everlasting impression on our hearts. A power house, a pillar of strength, Madre Meharban was an epitome of unflinching strength, unshakable faith, and unwavering valor. She was not just a pillar of strength for our party but Sher-e-Kashmir as well, whom she stood by in thick and thin. She lent all support to him in his fight for the restoration of people’s rights. She drew her energy from her faith in Almighty, and the holy Quran,” the statement quoted party leaders as saying.
While extolling her contribution towards the restoration of people’s rights and the realization of the goals enshrined in the document of Naya Kashmir, the party leaders said that she held sway over the political landscape of Jammu and Kashmir with the strength of personality. “Words cannot describe the role she played towards the socio-political awakening of the people of J&K. She relinquished a life of opulence to marry a people’s leader, a revolutionary, what followed is history. She stood like a lighthouse guiding the workers of the party whilst Sher e Kashmir was going through persecution and imprisonment. Madre Meharban never let despondency overwhelm her despite being subjected to all sorts of reprisals by the then repressive regimes,” they said.
