The Ummat-e-Islami (UeI) today condemned the ransacking of Jamia Masjid Anantnag and harassment of youth.
"The members in large numbers condemned the desecration of Jamia Masjid and demanded an immediate release of the arrested youth along with Mirwaiz Qazi Yasser," UeI spokesperson said in a statement.
"The continuous arrest of Mirwaiz Qazi Yasir is a testimony to the fact that the state is fearful of him, but they cannot stop the party as the party has spread its roots to nooks and corners of southern Kashmir. Feroz Ahmed Haji who runs a charitable trust owned by Mirwaiz Yasir was also not spared. He was arrested yesterday. Gulzar Madni who has a religious affiliation to Mirwaiz Yasir was also imprisoned for many days which is sheer frustration" he said.
