GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 27: Terming the remarks of National Conference president and Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy, Dr Farooq Abdullah about Holy Quran as an “act of apostasy,”
Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Sunday asked Ulemas and Muftis of the Valley to take notice of his utterances and aware the masses about Sharia decision on it.
“It has not only hurt the sentiments of Muslims, but tantamount to the contempt against the basic fundamentals of Islam,” Geelani said in a statement.
The pro-freedom leader said although Dr Farooq Abdullah and his family had “tarnished their Muslim identity way back, but they exploit gullible masses by showing their presence at Khanaqahs and Dargahs.”
“Although Dr Farooq Abdullah and his family’s anti-Islam acts are evident, but our religious leaders have unexpectedly remained silent on it,” he said.
Geelani said “New Delhi was directly or indirectly patronizing an Army of so-called Moulvis in Jammu and Kashmir.”
“This type of government Moulvis receive stipend from the family and interpret their legal and illegal through different ways,” he said.
Geelani said it was unfortunate that despite knowing their irreligious acts, people support and vote for them during elections.
“His remarks are matter of concern for those supporting them as they are ruining their hereafter,” he said
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday flayed Dr Farooq Abdullah for his “absurd remarks” about the Holy Quran.
“The absurd remarks made by Dr. Farooq Abdullah about the Quran in the presence of Gujrat Chief Minister, Narender Modi, one of the merciless mass-killers of Muslims, are most condemnable and show that he (Dr Farooq) has now lost his faith in Islam. His other activities including open idolatry substantiate this assumption about him,”
“He is doing all this so that he and his family remains in power, but the time will soon come when he will be thrown out,” he added.
He further said Jama’at-e-Islami, advises Dr Farooq Abdullah to adopt the right path of Islam and desist from these “senseless activities” which hurt the sentiments of the millions of Muslims. He should seek public apology for his past anti-Islamic activities, Zahid said.
