Srinagar, Nov 9: The chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday said Islam, as in past, can still lead the whole world if Muslims unite and become one body.
"We all believe in one Allah, his last Messenger Prophet Muhammad (SAW), one Quran and one Qibla and should keep aside our small differences and become one Ummah," Malik said while addressing Ashoora procession at Saida Kadal, Ashai Bagh, here.
"We have come here to show solidarity with our Shia brethren. The enemies of Islam and Muslims are hell bent upon dividing the Muslims in the name of caste and creed. These people want to see us fighting on small differences so that we never emerge as one nation and Ummah."
"We are here to strengthen the bond of friendship, brotherhood and oneness among the Muslims to defeat the evil designs of those who want to divide us. The family and companions of our Prophet (SAW) are dear to all Muslims and we all respect them. No Muslim can ever part ways from the agony and grief of what happened in Karbala. Imam Hussain (RA) belongs to all of us, so does his sacrifice for Islam. Therefore, we all should together defeat those who try to divide us."
Yasin Malik said, "Karbala teaches us to remain steadfast for truth and justice and always support those who are oppressed. We all should adhere to this Hussaini principle. Kashmiri are too fighting for a just cause and those who believe in Hussainiat will always remain with this just cause.
Yasin Malik and delegation also participated in the mourners' procession. Meanwhile JKLF spokesman paid rich tributes to gallantry martyr of Kashmir struggle Shariq Ahmad Bakhshi whose martyrdom anniversary was observed today. "A number of people including JKLF leaders and workers participated in the condolence meeting held at Mazari Shuhada Barzulla today. Participants paid rich tributes to Shaheed Shariq," he added.
