Chairman Muslim Shoura Committee and Imam Jamia Masjid Kishtwar, Farooq Ahmed Kichloo today condemned the "denial of chopper to a critically injured youth of Kishtwar by Health Minister, Bali Bhagat." However, the minister has refuted the charge.
Kitchloo said the "refusal to provide chopper service at the crucial time was against the humanity."
The Imam while addressing Friday sermon, alleged that the youth from Kishtwar namely Murtaza Mir was last week was not given the chopper service despite requests for the service by parents and local residents of Kishtwar.
He said the chopper was available in Kishtwar when the family members and locals had made request to the minister, "but the minister flew alone on it."
"We were forced to shift the critically serious patient by road even as the state chopper was available at the helipad at Kishtwar.
"The youth was injured in a road accident who later died in the medical college Jammu", he said.
Meanwhile, the Imam also condemned a section of national media. He said: "A section of Indian media is hiring Muslim moderate women on news channel debates, who have zero knowledge of Islam. These women even don't know the fundamentals of Islam."
He alleged that it is the "game plan of central government to disturb the law on triple Talaq, as every Muslim in India and across the world follows the law of Talaq according to Islamic Shariat."
