Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam pays glorious tributes to Mirwaiz Ateequllah Shah (RA)

Srinagar, July 16 (KNS) : The 57th anniversary of a great Islamic scholar, the spiritual leader and the former head of Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam Hazrat Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Moulana Ateequllah Shah (RA) was observed today with great devotion and reverence.
According to statement issued to KNS reads, on the occasion, the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam while paying glorious tributes to Mirwaiz Ateequllah Shah (RA) highlighted his historic and immense contribution towards the spread of education in Kashmir and his marvellous reforms vis-a-vis this age-old revered institution of the Valley.
The statement added, “After the demise of the former head of this institution Mirwaiz Ahmadullah Shah (RA) in 1931, the responsibility of heading the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam was tasked on the shoulders of Mirwaiz Ateequllah Shah (RA) who till his last breath dedicated himself completely towards achieving the milestones for which the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam is being remembered even today; and through his brilliance added a glorious chapter in the Anjuman’s history.”
“It was also during this very period and the result of the unflinching endeavours of Mirwaiz Ateequallah Shah (RA) that he himself laid the foundation for the Islamia College of Science and Commerce which before being shifted to Hawal, Srinagar, used to function in the lawn of Anjuman for two years. The Mirwaiz Ateequallah Shah (RA) also remained the lifetime head of the college,” the Anjuman said.
The Anjuman said despite extreme unfavourable conditions, Mirwaiz Ateequllah Shah (RA) fulfilled the responsibilities of not only being the religious and political leader of the masses but also contributed immensely towards the social reform. Through his saintly qualities and divine potential, Mirwaiz Ateequllah Shah (RA) was a blessing of Allah for common masses, it said.
Due to the ongoing lockdown owing to growing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the continuous house arrest of the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam chairman Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, no commemorative function was held to mark the occasion, the Anjuman said in the statement. (KNS)
