Grand Mufti seeks speedy solution
Ready to pay for dog transportation
Srinagar: Breaking his prolonged silence on dog menace, the Grand Mufti Bashir-Ud-Din, who is known for his Fatwa on forbidding the use of polythene bags, Sunday sought “a positive role” of prominent animal rights activist and Member Parliament Maneka Gandhi into dog menace which has assumed alarming proportions in Srinagar.
Reacting to Gandhi’s visit to the summer Capital, the Mufti Azam said she should “seriously look into the problem which the people have been facing because of the dog menace.”
“As if human rights violations were not enough that the people mostly women and children every off an on fell prey to canine bites and even get killed,” Mufi said.
Bashir-Ud-Din said his son and Deputy Mufti Nasir-Ul-Islam was willing to provide financial resources for transportation of dogs.
“What we want is immediate relief from dog menace which may not be possible without their transportation to some other place. And I am ready to pay money for the same, be it their land transportation or airlifting,” Mufti Nasir said.
Mufti Nasir who has spend a considerable part of his life in the US and other developed countries said money was “no criteria for him to make people get rid of the menace, which is killing us by inches.”
