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
