MMU demands immediate release of Mirwaiz


A special meeting of the leading and founding members of Jammu and Kashmir Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) was held in Srinagar on Thursday. According to Kashmir Media Service, a resolution passed on the occasion demanded release of MMU chief Mirwaiz Umar Farooq before Eidul Azha so that he could lead the festival prayers.

The Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema extended its heartfelt greetings to the Muslim world, especially the Muslims of Jammu & Kashmir on the occasion of Eidul Adha, and appealed to them to celebrate the festival with simplicity.

The MMU resolution urged the rulers not to lay restrictions for Friday prayers at the historic Jama Masjid Srinagar, the largest place of worship in Kashmir.

The resolution expressed deep concern over the arbitrary and illegal detention of its patron Mirwaiz Umar Farooq for the last three years.

The MMU called for urgent release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in view of Eidul Adha so that he can carry out his centuries-old religious obligations and responsibilities as per the practice of his forefathers.—INP
