Srinagar: According to Kashmir Media Service, tens of thousands of Kashmiris attended funeral prayers of two teenagers martyred by Indian forces in the Occupied territory on Sunday.
“A sea of people including women and children marched with the bodies of young martyrs Mudasir Rasheed Parray and Saqib Bilawal Sheikh through the streets raising pro-freedom and anti-India slogans in the town,” said KMS.
Saqib Bilal had acted in Haider, a 2014 Bollywood movie featuring Shahid Kapoor in the lead role.
Both the boys were football aficionados who used to play the game for hours at Hajin’s Eidgah, the same place where their funeral prayers were offered.

Produced and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, “Haider” was a film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet and an adaptation of Basharat Peer’s memoir Curfewed Night.
