GEELANI FELICITATES PEOPLE ON NEW HIJRI CALENDAR
Srinagar, Nov 14: The Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani has felicitated people on the eve of new Hijri calendar, whishing that New Year would bring joy, freedom and happiness to the whole Ummah in general and Kashmiris in particular.
Geelani urged the people to adhere to Islamic identity and adopt Islamic calendar instead of Christian era. “We should congratulate our Muslim brethren on this auspicious day and avoid the western type of extending greetings on commencement of Christian era,” said Geelani, describing 1433 Hijri a year of successes and victory for the Muslim Ummah as in many Muslim countries the elections have clearly portrayed that the righteous and Islamic sections are making a headway in present world scenario.
“We are optimistic about the new and revolutionary change in world order which is need of time for ailing humanity,” he said.
Geelani said some forces had always been propagating negative propaganda about the noble and just system of Islam. “They have created confusion and misinformation regarding Islam and it is our moral duty to spread the message of Islam which is based on human values, piety, sacrifice and complete submission to Allah,” Geelani said.
Taking dig at secularism, Geelani said “we have seen the callous face of secularism in India and definitely it is at its last stage.” He affirmed that it is only Islam which can provide a best and lasting solution to every problem.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat is holding a seminar on November 18 at Hyderpora here in memory Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and other martyrs of Karbala.
