Mirwaiz condemns police action on Muharam procession


Srinagar, Dec 5: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Monday strongly condemned the use of force by CRPF and police personnel against Muharram processions in Srinagar yesterday.
He said that the Karbala happening impresses and urges the Muslims that they should not hesitate to sacrifice for the promotion of the sublime principles of Islam even if it means laying down their lives.
Mirwaiz said that the spirit of sacrifice and courage upholds the Muslim traditions and safeguards their faith, sense of truthfulness and fight for the principles. He said that the event of Karbala gives us the message not to hesitate from any sacrifice for the cause of Islamic values and principles.
The Mirwaiz said that martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) symbolizes the importance of struggle to achieve the righteous path. “The martyrdom is testimony to the fact that the steadfast people can give their life behind their principles,” he added.
Umar said that the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (AS) demands from the Ummah to shun all differences, hatred and vested interests and start following the true path of tolerance and brotherhood. “The jihad fought by Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) alongwith his companions was the peerless example of the values of humanity, patience, perseverance, courage and determination,” he added.
Meanwhile, Mirwaiz, in a statement, strongly condemned the use of force against the mourners. He pointed out that the troops’ action showed that Kashmiris were deprived of their religious rights.
According to a Hurriyat (M) spokesman, Mirwaiz will address people at Narwara, Eidgah on Tuesday where he will throw light on the life and martyrdom of grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), Imam Hussain (AS).
