Don’t attend New Year functions: Majlis-e-Tahfuz-i-Islam

Srinagar, Dec 17: Majlis-e-Tahfuz-i-Islam has asked the Muslims to desist from participating in the New Year day functions.
“It is un-Islamic to celebrate New Year and the Muslims should in very way refrain from attending the functions related to this event. Islamic calendar begins from Muharram and not from January,” a MTI spokesman said in a statement.
The Majlis, at a meeting of the members of its sub committees, introduction committee, media committee and education committee here with Nazim-il-Aala Dar-ul- Uloom Rahimiya, Bandopira, Moulana Rehmat Ullah Mir in chair, said the people professing any religion or faith have every right to worship in their own way and nobody should object them on this count. “However, the Muslims of Jammu Kashmir are asked to refrain from attending the functions and prayer meetings of other religions,” said the spokesman.
The spokesman alleged that the government was trying to hush up the case registered against Christian priest C M Khana.
