Mirwaiz convenes Shia-Sunni Coordination Committee meet


Srinagar, Nov 30: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has invited various separatist and religious leaders to participate in a meeting of Sunni-Shia Coordination Committee to be held on Sunday.
 “The meeting would take place in the house of senior Hurriyat leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al Moosvi in Budgam”, Mirwaiz said in a statement.
 He said the meeting would discuss the incident and formulate an effective strategy to tackle it in the future.   
 Mirwaiz said that he has invited various leaders including Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani to discuss the issues and exchange ideas regarding tackling the situation in the city.
 Others who have been invited for the meeting include JKLF Chairman Yasin Malik,  Shia leaders Iftikhar Hussain Ansari, Moulana Abbas Ansari and Agha Syed Hassan apart from Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Muhammad Abdullah Wani and Jamiat-e-Ahle Hadees Chief Gulam Rasool Malik.
 Meanwhile, Mirwaiz appealed people to uphold the centuries old tradition of harmony and brotherhood. He asked people to remain vigilant of certain forces who are trying to sabotage peace and harmony among different sections of society.
 Meanwhile, Mirwaiz has castigated the government decision to “turn Srinagar into a battle zone and make lakhs of people hostage in their own houses”.
 He said it was highly condemnable that due to restrictions people could not move out of their houses to get the daily essentials of life and offer the Friday prayers at Masjids and shrines.
 “The restrictions were also a direct interference in the religious matter of Muslims and termed this policy of government as undemocratic and authoritative,” he said.
 Mirwaiz stressed that Kashmiris should show unity at any cost and foil the evil designs of the agencies who want to create fissures among the Ummah. KNS
