LAHORE - Moulana Shafi Josh said that Chaudhry Ghulam Abbas, a prominent Kashmiri leader, was among the first few Kashmiri leaders who raised the voice for Kashmir's affiliation with Pakistan.

He said it while addressing a sitting 47th death anniversary of the Kashmir Movement leader Ch Ghulam Abbas at Aiwan-i-Karkunan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan.

Many students, teachers and people from other walks of life attended the sitting. Josh said that earlier in his political career, Abbas was a symbol of hope for Kashmiris as he vehemently decried the Dogra rule in Kashmir and fought for rights of Muslim Kashmiris. He was imprisoned for championing the cause of Kashmir's affiliation with Pakistan. He was also one of the founding leaders of Muslim Conference.
