Indian Army organizes prayers for Janab Maqbool Sherwani, a Kashmiri youth who misguided Pakistani raiders but was killed later

Srinagar: After finding the heroic warrior was misguiding them, Pakistani raiders mutilated and crucified his body before firing 14 rounds.

 

Indian Army on Thursday organized remembrance prayers at the grave of Janab Maqbool Sherwani, a Kashmiri youth who delayed the march of raiders from Pakistan towards Srinagar on Uri-Muzaffarabad highway who were indulging in plunder, raid, and murder of innocent people.

 

Indian Army also renovated the grave of Sherwani and paid floral tributes at his grave.

 

According to a press release, he successfully misguided the raiders on to the wrong path when he was asked to guide them towards Srinagar airport.

 

Janab Sherwani and his volunteers, comprising various communities with no military training, set up roadblocks and demolished bridges, thus protecting the fastest access to Srinagar. Subsequently, raiders realized that Maqbool Sherwani has deliberately delayed their march towards Srinagar Airport.

 

After apprehending the noble warrior, raiders mutilated and crucified his body before firing 14 shots. The body was nailed to a plank and tied till the Indian Army got it down. He died a martyr's death on November 7, 1947, but not before inspiring the Kashmiris to rise against the raiders.

 

Two weeks after his death, Mahatma Gandhi paid tribute to him in a prayer meeting in Delhi to honor his supreme sacrifice.

 

The grave of Maqbool Sherwani is in the old town, Baramulla, and to honor this great son of the soil, the Indian Army has renovated the grave of Janab Maqbool Sherwani. The work began in April 2021 and now stands completed.
