Srinagar: Islamic Students League patron and senior resistance leader Shakeel Ahmad Bakshi on Friday urged pro-freedom and militant leadership to refrain from issuing Fatwas (edicts) without in-depth probe. In a statement issued to Kashmir Dispatch, Bakshi,while pointing towards remarks of pro-freedom leaders said: 'Time demands restraint from usual statements, Fatwas and slanderous campaign against pro Resistance groups without looking into matter in depth and hold.' 'Instead of going in public, the matter should have been resolved amicably,' the senior resistance leader said apparently referring to the statements made by pro-Azadi camp after attacks on mobile towers. He further said that the political upper ground leaders should have 'refrained from prejudicial and biased comments' and 'instead concentrated on performing their elderly role - to destabilize and defeat the evil designs of India which are aimed to uproot the resistance movement'. The ISL patron said the militant commanders should have engaged their professional way to investigate the recent confusion without jumping to the conclusion 'on just hearsay or some press notes in news papers'. 'This has just added to the lost credibility right from 9-11. To swayed away by winds, of those who changed the tide, is disastrous for present crucial time. It is an important responsibility of the resistance and militant leadership at this crucial time after polls to understand the evil designs of enemy with a statesmanship, and not to into the web and became a part of anarchist Plan,' he said. Advertisement 'Even in past, when the movement was in infancy stage, the same and such character assassination was hatched against Shaheed Ishfaq Majeed Wani, Azam Inqilabi, Yasin Malik, Shabir Shah and others by declaring them proclaimed offenders and rest fell in that trap,' the ISL patron said, adding: 'history repeats itself.' 'We should not be the part of the great sin, to concealment of the Truth. Those who shed their blood can't equate with those who enjoy all luxury of blood,' he added.
