Will lead Muharram procession today: Moulana Abbas
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Nov 22: Senior Hurriyat leader and Islamic scholar Moulana Abbas Ansari Thursday said he would lead the Muharram procession from Guru Bazar to Dalgate Friday in the absence of his son Moulana Masroor Abbas who had been detained by police for the past two days.
Abbas condemned the arrest of his son and said that restrictions on Muharram processions “speak of double standards maintained by the government.”
“For one community security is managed for months together and for the other a blanked ban is imposed. This is sheer injustice and infringement into religious rights,” he said while addressing a Muharram related rally.
The mourners raised Anti-Isreal slogans even as they sought immediate release of Masroor Abbas detained at Raj Bagh Police Station.
