‘Oppressed nation can’t tolerate hatred on basis of creed’
Srinagar: Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik Thursday asked religious institutions and clerics to refrain from preaching and propagating hatred in Masajid and social media.
In a statement issued here, Malik said the new phenomenon of hate mongering in the name of religion and creed by a section of Ulema and preachers was ‘most unfortunate’.
He said that the nation that was losing its young and old on daily basis “while resisting military occupation and oppression”, cannot tolerate hatred and division in the name of religion and creed.
“Anyone who is doing this is actually playing in the hands of oppressors and enemies of Islam”.
He said that the great scholars have laid down a great principle which teaches to hold fast to ones Maslak (creed) without teasing other.
“We all need to adhere to this principle and stop hate mongering in our Masajid, Dar Ul Uloom, social media and at other places.”
He said that from some time many preachers are seen delivering hate speeches against their rivals and other Maslaks (creeds).
“These people are actually crossing all the limits of decency and are seen showering abuses on each other in Masajid and seminaries and especially on social media networks. This actually amounts to setting whole Ummah on fire and no true Muslim can tolerate this non-sense,” Malik said.
Asking all the religious bodies and organizations to immediately stop their people indulging in hate campaign, JKLF chairman said, It was our moral and religious duty to safeguard unity and brotherhood and not let a “bunch of fools” to pollute and disintegrate our society.
