90th anniversary of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Moulana Ahmadullah Shah observed

Srinagar, July 06 (KNS): The 90th anniversary of the passing away of Valley’s pride, prominent religious scholar and former head of Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Moulana Ahmadullah Shah (RA) was observed today with utmost devotion.
According to statement issued to KNS reads, on the occasion, the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam paid glowing tributes to the Late Mirwaiz Ahmadullah Shah (RA) for his immense contribution to religious, tableeghi, social and spiritual upliftment of the people of Kashmir; and termed him “a true Aashiq-e-Rasool (SAW) who besides being an ardent follower of the Qur’an and Sunnah was an epitome of generosity and a man of character”.
During his time, the Late Mirwaiz Ahmadullah Shah (RA) not only exposed the conspiracies hatched against the ‘Khatam-e-Naboowat’ finality of the prophethood of the Last Messenger of Allah Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) but also launched a vigorous movement against it thereby safeguarded the Muslims of Kashmir from the storm of disbelief and blasphemy, the Anjuman said in a statement, adding that the Late Mirwaiz (RA) fulfilled his responsibilities in a fair and justified manner till his last breath.
It was the Late Mirwaiz Ahmadullah Shah (RA) who first stood against the tyrannical rule in Kashmir and to safeguard the political and social rights of the people signed a historic memorandum which was sent to the then Viceroy of India. This resulted in severe hardships to him and he was persecuted in one way or the other under various pretexts.
It is pertinent to mention here that due to the continuous house arrest of the incumbent head of the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq and the closure of educational institutions. In view of the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, no function to pay rich tributes to the Late Mirwaiz (RA) or to organise the congregational prayer meeting could be held. (KNS)
