Kash­mir move­ment has en­tered cru­cial phase: Mir­waiz

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, the Chair­man of his own Hur­riyet fo­rum, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, has said that the Kash­mir lib­er­a­tion move­ment has en­tered into a sen­si­tive phase and Kash­miri peo­ple need to strengthen unity among their ranks to take it to its log­i­cal con­clu­sion in a more ef­fec­tive man­ner. He said that im­mense flow of young boold of Kash­miris has con­vinced the world that the old­est dis­pute over Jammu and Kash­mir must be solved sooner. The fate of Kash­miri peo­ple shall win over all odds and atroc­i­ties, he as­sured.

Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq was ad­dress­ing an im­pres­sive re­li­gious gath­er­ing held at Dast­geer Sahib Shrine in Sri­na­gar. He said that the Kash­miris had sac­ri­ficed their lives and prop­er­ties and con­tin­ued to do so for the Kash­mir cause and they needed to stay united till Kash­mir move­ment reached its log­i­cal con­clu­sion.

The gath­er­ing was held in con­nec­tion with the mar­tyr­dom an­niver­sary of the fourth Caliph of Is­lam, Hazrat Ali (RA).

The Mir­waiz pay­ing glow­ing trib­utes to Hazrat Ali (RA) said, en­tire life of the fourth Caliph was an ex­am­ple for all Mus­lims and his brav­ery and way of life serves as an ex­am­ple not only for Mus­lims but also for the en­tire hu­man­ity. He said that the Mus­lims would con­tinue to re­mem­ber Hazrat Ali (RA) for his ser­vices to Is­lam and mankind un­til the Day of Judg­ment.

He pointed out that one of the main rea­sons of un­cer­tainty and strife in the Is­lamic world was that the Mus­lims had given up on fol­low­ing the path shown by Prophet Muham­mad (PBUH) and Chalipa-e-Rashideen and got en­gaged in the fu­til­i­ties of worldly af­fairs. He urged the Mus­lims to fol­low the teach­ings of Prophet Muham­mad (PBUH) and Calipha-e-Rashideen in let­ter and spirit so that they could come out of the ma­trix and con­vul­sion that they are caught in.—KMS
