Addressing a media conference here today he said that it is mockery on the history wherein villains are being glorified as martyrs truth must prevail in whole world knows that incident of July 13 in Srinagar was an outcome of a conspiracy hatched by Britishers against Maharaja for his refusal to handover Galgit agency to Britishers.
Abdul Qadir, a Muslim from Rawalpindi was assigned to play the role of inciting the communal passions amongst the Kashmiri Muslims.
Shiekh Abdulla joined the conspiracy as a result there was a mass attempt of jail break to get Abdul Qadir freed from the course of law.
The Magistrate after lot of persuasions to disperse had to order fire on recalcitrant to save the court of law and the jail precincts.
There after the freziened mob attacked minorities houses and establishments, killed them and forcibly converted them not only in Srinagar but also in out circuits of Kashmir. Calling this mania as upsurge against the ruler of the time is biggest lie projected by Shiekh Abdulla and his Muslim conference, present day NC. How the culprits of rioting can be cherished as the martyrs.
