SRINAGAR: Chief of Muslim Deeni Mahaz, Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo on Saturday urged pro-freedom leadership to unite against the “anti-Muslim maneuverings of PDP and RSS.”
Qasim requested Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to invite all the pro-resistance leaders like Syed Ali Geelani , Yaseen Malik, Shabir Ahmad Shah and Miya Abdul Qayoom to offer prayers at Jamia Masjid Srinagar on the eve of Jumat ul Vida on 17th July and address the “mammoth gathering” of the people there.
“These leaders should jointly address the people and make them aware about the agenda of PDP and RSS and promulgate a joint strategy to tackle this agenda. This invitation will be a benevolent gesture from MIrwaiz showing his commitment to this movement and thus creating a historic opportunity,” Qasim was quoted by a spokesman.
“The pace at which the RSS and PDP are working jointly on an anti-Muslim agenda requires resistance camp to work against it under a joint strategy,” he said.
“If pro-India political parties, departments, agencies and media can work jointly in prolonging the occupation of Jammu Kashmir why can’t the resistance organizations fight this operation united,” he said .
Qasim asked Kahsmiri Muslims to remain alert against those Indian political workers who were indulging in negative propaganda against the pro-freedom leadership .
“All they want is that the public image of these leaders should get tarnished so that pro-India political parties get an open field for work. We can’t have angels or our pious ancestors as our leaders, thus we are left with no choice but to support the present leadership,” he said.
“The weaknesses that they may be having can be corrected by being in touch with them. We request the educated youth to sincerely be in contact with the pro-resistance leadership , point out their mistakes and play a role in making this movement strong and active,” he said.
