No politics in Mirwaiz’s Friday sermon
Srinagar, Jan 7: Unlike past when Hurriyat (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq would devote almost ten minutes of his religious sermon to political situation in Kashmir, there was no such talk on Friday.
According to PBI, Hurriyat chairman, who is also the chief cleric of the Kashmir, restricted his sermon to religious thought, a rarity if not the exception given his routine lecture at the grand Masjid.
During his last sermon, the Mirwaiz had cornered Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah for his ‘failure’ to realize election times promises about Bijli, Pani and Sadak.
The amalgam has also maintained silence over the latest suggestion to them by leadership of ruling National Conference including party Patron, Dr Farooq Abdullah and Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah.
The father-son duo had asked the Hurriyat chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, to hold parleys with New Delhi “when they (Hurriyat) can to talk parliamentarians.”
Syed Rehman, an associate of Hurriyat chairman, said that it was not ‘wise’ for him (Mirwaiz) to talk ‘needlessly’.
“There was lot of activity particularly seminars last week and Mirwaiz divulged at length about the political situation in Kashmir during the meetings. It is also not wise for him to talk unnecessarily,” he said.
Regarding the silence by amalgam on recent suggestion by Dr Farooq and the CM, he said, “Mirwaiz sahib is not supposed to react to everything what Dr Farooq or Omar utter.”
He said the amalgam had already put forth four conditions before the New Delhi for any dialogue. “Unless these conditions are met, there would be no parleys with India,” he said.
