Celebrate Eid with simplicity: Masrat Alam to people
Srinagar, Aug 17: The incarcerated naib amir of Muslim League Jammu Kashmir, Masrat Alam Bhat, has appealed to the people to observe austerity and simplicity while celebrating the Eid-ul-Fitr and not to forget the families of martyrs and detainees.
“Lakhs of people have been martyred, thousands subjected to enforced disappearance, thousands rendered orphans, thousands of women rendered widows and the property worth thousands of crores was destroyed since 1990 for pursuing the struggle for freedom. Besides, hundreds of people are still languishing in jails in and outside Kashmir,” an ML spokesman quoted Masrat Alam as having said in a statement.
Masrat Alam also appealed to the Ulema and Imams of all Masjids to organize special prayers for the prosperity of Umah to pray for Kashmir, Palestine and Afghanistan.
