He said, “Without unity you have nothing. The time we are facing is a trial from Allah. Ask Allah don’t put us in so much of trial. But we should not be afraid of trials. Allah might have kept something better for us.”

“All prisoners are the same and there is no difference. They are all equal. I don’t differentiate between you and others. We are all one. Maintain unity for a purpose and not unity just for the sake of elections. Unity should be of purpose,” he added.

He expressed concern over the situation along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh and asked India and China to show restraint and engage in military de-escalation through dialogue.

He was arrested last year then booked under the stringent Public Safety Act for months. Many senior leaders including PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti are still behind bars and internet speed is restricted to 2G. The fear of demographic change in J&K with the new domicile laws has caused anger and disillusionment among the people.
