Urging parents to start introspection from their homes, Mirwaiz said each house and its members have to take responsibility in eliminating various forms of social evils which are taking toll on our future generations and are weakening our age old cultures and traditions. He said every Kashmiri must unite against the fast spreading waywardness and immorality in the society
Mirwaiz termed the Rabi-ul-Awal as the sacred month saying it was in this month that the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) arrived in this world to teach the principles of humanity to the entire mankind that was neck-deep into defiance.
Mirwaiz shed light on the Prophet Muhammad’s (SAW) life and way of living and asked people especially youth to follow the great teachings of beloved Prophet (SAW) in every sphere of life.—KR
