Srinagar, March 16 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, a resolution condemning the harassment of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and crackdown on workers of socio-religious organisations was read out at several mosques in mosques across the Kashmir valley.

A statement issued by Mutahida Majlis Ulama in Srinagar said that the resolution expressed solidarity with Mirwaiz and vowed to stand by him at a time when he was being harassed and victimised by the Indian authorities.

Denouncing the NIA summons, the MMU resolution described it as assault on religious affairs of Muslims.

“Mirwaiz is not just a political leader whose views are for peaceful resolution of Kashmir issue, but the religious head of people of Kashmir and any attempt to harass him will be strongly opposed,” the resolution said.
It also condemned the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami and arrest of its leaders and cadres, calling the move a blatant interference in religious affairs.

The resolution was read out in all mosques across the valley including central Masjid Srinagar, Dargah Hazratbal, Jinab Sahib Soura, Astan-e-Aliya Saraie Bala, Khanka-e-Moula, Dastgeer Sahib Khanyar, Imam Bara Budgam, Jamia Masjid Beerwah, Mirza Akmal Sahib Hawal, Masjid Sharief Khwaja Habibullah Sahib Nowshera, Masjid Rehmat Lal Bazar, Imam Bara Hassanabad, Masjid Sajadia Chattabal, Madina Masjid Nigeen, Masjid Sharief Zadibal, Masjid Sharief Batamaloo and in mosques of all other districts of the valley.
