Don’t raise minor issues, stress on unity: Mirwaiz
Asks Muslim Clerics To Be Sensitive To Kashmir Situation
Srinagar, Sep 6: Cautioning Muslim leaders against falling into the trap of divisive forces, chief cleric of Kashmir and Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Thursday stressed on avoiding minor issues that have a potential of dividing Muslims.
“We have to be cautious against divisive elements. They want to create a wedge between the Muslims. It has been seen in the past that anti-Islamic elements wanted to create a divide at international as well as local level. These elements are active even today,” Mirwaiz told a gathering of Muslim scholars while chairing an important session of Mutahida Majlis-i-Ulema at Mirwaiz Manzil here.
Mirwaiz stressed on unity and called upon Muslim leaders not to raise minor issues at religious places. “Ulema have to be sensitive towards the situation prevailing in Kashmir. We cannot afford divide in society at this juncture. Even if some Ulema have a disagreement with some leader and issue, podium is not the right place to raise it. We can discuss those issues mutually after bringing it in the notice of the Mutahida Majlis-i-Ulema rather than issuing controversial statements to media and public,” Mirwaiz said.
Stressing on the clerics to raise voice against social issues and moral degradation in the society, Mirwaiz said, “We have to fight against conversion and use of drugs particularly by our younger generation. We have to aware people about the menace and stop it.”
Mirwaiz called for involving school and college administrations in awareness against the social evils facing the society.
In a bid to strengthen the unity of Muslims in Kashmir and eradicate social evils, the participants decided that a code of conduct will be chalked out in the next meet to ensure that Muslim leaders do not openly criticize each other.
