Shia-Sunni unity: Geelani to lead ‘peace march’ in Srinagar

GK NEWS NETWORK

Srinagar, Dec 3: The Hurriyat Conference (G) is organizing a peace march on December 5 (Wednesday) from downtown Srinagar under the leadership of its chairman Syed Ali Geelani. 
 “We will offer Zuhr prayers at Khankah–e- Hazrat Khawja Habib-Ullah Nowshere (RA) on Wednesday. Respectable persons from both Shia and Sunni communities will start their peace march from there only and pass through all localities of old Srinagar,” said a Hurriyat (G) spokesman in a statement today.
 He said the decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the Hurriyat Advisory Council here with its chairman Syed Ali Shah in chair. “The meeting expressed serious concern over some unpleasant and undesirable incidents that took place in downtown here and urged both Shia and Sunni communities to maintain unity, amity and brotherhood at all cost,” he said.  “The members appealed to people not to do anything which may cause harm to our national cause. They were of unanimous opinion that no religious differences are behind these undesirable incidents. The disruption is taking place due to the rumours being spread by some disruptive and mischievous elements. These rumours have caused misunderstanding among the people of both Shia and Sunni communities.”
 The spokesman alleged that “some pro-India politicians are taking undue advantage of the situation and are trying to manipulate these incidents for vote bank politics.”
 Meanwhile, the Hurriyat Advisory Council will meet again on Tuesday at 10 am. The meeting is scheduled to discuss the invitation to the amalgam to visit Pakistan. “All the aspects of the proposed visit will be discussed at length,” said the spokesman.
