Mehjoor Day: National Conference pays tributes to Mehjoor
Sagar, Nasir, Kamal others also pay tributes to Mehjoor
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Friday paid glowing tributes to Shayar-e-Kashmir Ghulam Ahmad Mehjoor on the observance of annual Mehjoor day.
Dr Farooq in his message said, “As the bard of nature and voice of working classes, Mehjoor stands supreme. His love of Nature was probably truer, and tenderer, than that of any other Kashmiri poets before or since. He occupies an independent status in the poetic circles of Kashmir on account of his giving voice to the sorrow-stricken hearts of people of his era; his couplets are obsessed with the emotions of the realities of his era. His poems became the nationalist anthems of the people of Kashmir in their struggle against feudalism and autocracy. The struggle of political awakening and dissent brought about by Sher-e-Kashmir also echoes in his poetry. On this day I pay glowing tribute to the great poet of ours.”
While paying tributes to Mehjoor Omar Abdullah said, “A revolutionary he was! Deep faith in the unity of humankind, intrinsic antipathy for slavery and love for nature are the qualities that underscore his poetry. On this day I pay my glowing tributes to the great son of Kashmir. His legacy will continue to stimulate our love for Kashmir, and our commitment towards protecting its cultural and political frontiers.”
Meanwhile, Party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, Additional General Secretary Dr Sheikh Mustufa Kamal, Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani, Party MPs Muhammad Akbar Lone, Hassnain Masoodi; Former MP Sharief Ud Din Shariq, Muhammad Shafi Uri, Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar have also paid glowing tributes to Shayar- e-Kashmir Mehjoor on Mehjoor Day.
