Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Sunday asked the constituents of the pro-freedom grouping to respect its constitution.
Mirwaiz said that Hurriyat was a forum where everybody’s opinion is being heard and respected. “However, individual opinions cannot override the collective thought and decisions of the forum,” he said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the Hurriyat organised a seminar titled ‘Youm-e-Rehmatul-Aalameen (SAW)’ at amalgam’s headquarters at Rajbagh to highlight the message and teachings of the Holy Prophet.
Speaking on the occasion, Mirwaiz said there is no house in Kashmir which has not suffered during the past 25 years of conflict. “However, going through such traumatic experience people should have come closer to Allah rather than going away from His teachings, which is presently happening in Kashmir,” Mirwaiz said, adding that the tide of materialism and distance from religion was creeping deeper into the society.
He said the Kashmiri struggle would not succeed “till the nation would not bring discipline on religious, social and behavioral and fronts.” Expressing concern over the “growing immorality in the society,” Mirwaiz appealed to the parents to play a constructive role and install good values in their children.
Others who spoke during the seminar included Abdul Gani Bhat, Maulana Mohammad Abbas Ansari, Maulana Shamas-ur-Rehman, Musadiq Adil, Abdul Majid Banday, Shahid-ul-Islam, GN Zaki, Javaid Ahmad Mir, Hakim Abdul Rashid, Hilal Ahmad War, and Zaffar Akbar Bhat.
