In occupied Kashmir, illegally detained Chairman of Ummat-e-Islami, Qazi Yasir has paid rich tributes to martyr Yawar Nisar, saying that he was a brave boy who always stood for the right and helped the society. According to media sources, Qazi Yasir in a statement issued in Srinagar said during 2014 floods, Yawar provided relief to people and rescued them. “He was frequently arrested by the police. His father was also picked up on an occasion for 18 days. He and his family members were constantly harassed,” he added. Yawar Nisar was killed by Indian troops during a siege and search operation at Kanelwan in Bijbehara.
