Seeks release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq

Srinagar, July 07 (KNS) On the eve of Eid ul Azha a special meeting of the leading and founding members of Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) Jammu and Kashmir was held on Thursday and a unanimous resolution passed. 

According to a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS) MMU extended its heartfelt greetings to the Islamic World, especially the Muslims of Jammu & Kashmir, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, and appealed to them to celebrate the festival with simplicity.

The statement reads that MMU urged people to extend all possible help to the poor and needy sections of society so that they too partake in the joys of Eid.

MMU expressing deep concern over the current social situation of Kashmir feels there is a dire need for all-round reform in society. 

“The excesses at weddings and other celebrations are glaring and need to be curtailed. Following the sunnah in all matters and affairs of life is the way to follow, as the Prophet (SAW) has set the example for us. 
The serious problems and difficulties faced by the people of Kashmir, especially by the youth, are a matter of great concern for all. Again these can be faced and resisted in the light of Islamic teachings.” 

MMU in this resolution again urges the rulers and administration not to cause obstruction regarding the Friday prayers at the historical Jama Masjid Srinagar.

It added that MMU is deeply concerned and anguished over the detention of its patron Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq for the last three years, due to which all his responsibilities and dawah work has got suspended. 

“As such, the Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema urges the rulers and the administration to ensure the release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir in view of Eid-ul-Adha and Qurbani so that he can carry out his centuries-old religious obligations and responsibilities as per the practice of his forefathers.”
