SRINAGAR: On the eve of Eid ul Azha a special meeting of the leading and founding members of Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) Jammu and Kashmir was held on Thursday and a unanimous resolution passed, which will be read tomorrow at Friday prayer’s accross all major mosques and shrine, the resolution reads

The Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema extends its heartfelt greetings to the Islamic World, especially the Muslims of Jammu & Kashmir, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, and appealed to them to to celebrate the festival with simplicity in keepers with the islamic tradition and in view of the situation prevailing in J&K.

On this occasion it urges people to extend all possible help to the poor and needy sections of society so that they too partake in the joys of Eid.

Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema expressing deep concern over the current social situation of Kashmir feels there is a dire need for all-round reform in society. The excesses at weddings and other celebrations are glaring and need to be curtailed. Following the sunnah in all matters and affairs of life is the way to follow, as the prophet (pbuh )has set the example for us.

The serious problems and difficulties faced by the people of Kashmir, especially by the youth, are a matter of great concern for all.

Again these can be faced and resisted in the light of Islamic teachings.

Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema in this resolution again urges the rulers and administration not to cause obstruction in regarding the Friday prayers at the historical Jama Masjid Srinagar, the largest place of worship in Kashmir so that the Muslims can seek the pleasure of Allah (SWT) at this great spiritual centre, without any hindrance.

Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema is deeply concerned and anguished over the arbitrary and illegal detention of its patron and the topmost religious leader of Kashmir Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq for the last three years, due to which all his responsibilities and dawah work has got suspended, which is highly regrettable and reprehensible.

As such, the Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema strongly urges the rulers and the administration to ensure the release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir in view of Eid-ul-Adha and Qurbani so that he can carry out his centuries-old religious obligations and responsibilities as per the practice of his forefathers – the Mirwaizeen-e-Kashmir.
