In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) has paid rich tributes to its founder Mirwaiz Molvi Muhammad Farooq on his martyrdom anniversary, which falls on 25th Shawal 1442 as per Islamic calendar, as well as to the Hawal martys.
The AAC in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Mirwaiz Molvi Muhammad Farooq will always be remembered for his invaluable and unforgettable contribution in social, religious, educational, political and humanitarian field’s and his struggle in pursuit of honour and dignity for his fellow Kashmiris.
It appealed to ulema, imams and all people to remember their beloved leader and the brave Hawal martys and all the martyrs of Kashmir since 1931, in their prayers and pray for jannat-ul-Fudous for all of them.
The AAC said that owing to lockdown in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic and continued illegal house detention of its Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq since August 2019, the congregational Dua-e-Majlis and Qur’an Khwani for Molvi Muhammad Farooq and all other martyrs had been postponed till the situation improves .
However, it is incumbent upon every Muslim to remember the sacrifices of martyrs and pray for their elevated status, the statement said, and urged people to also pray for refuge from the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic which has wreaked havoc across the world.—KMS
