Srinagar, Jan 19 (KNS): Jammu & Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) has expressed deep grief and sorrow over the demise of the veteran journalist of Valley Ghulam Nabi Shaida, who was the owner and editor of Urdu daily ‘Waadi Ki Awaz’.

In a statement issued to KNS, the AAC paid glowing tributes to Ghulam Nabi Shaida for his decades-long services in the field of journalism in Jammu & Kashmir.

Late Ghulam Nabi Shaida was a hardworking, honest and an experienced journalist who championed for the rights of Kashmiris even in the hard times for which he was time and again suppressed by the successive governments, the AAC said.

The statement further said that Late Ghulam Nabi Shaida had personal relations with AAC founder Shaheed-e-Millat Mirwaiz Moulana Muhammad Farooq and together they used to discuss the issues concerning the people of Kashmir which he would then highlight in his reputed newspaper.

After the martyrdom of Shaheed-e-Millat, Late Shaida Sahib remained equally in touch with Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq and used to play a positive role regarding highlighting people’s daily issues and toward the movement.

The AAC said the demise of Ghulam Nabi Shaida had created a void in the field of journalism in Kashmir and expressed condolence and solidarity with the bereaved family on behalf of the organisation’s chairman Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq who continues to be under house arrest. It also prayed for Jannat-ul-Firdous to the departed soul.

Meanwhile, the AAC expressed grief over the demise of Ali Muhammad Kak of Kak Mohalla, Nowhatta, who was affiliated with Shaheed-e-Millat and had played a great role in carrying forward the AAC's programmes.
