The people associated to Mirwaiz Yasir religiously are also not spared. Feroz Ahmed Haji who runs a charitable trust owned by Mirwaiz Yasir was also not spared, he was arrested yesterday. Gulzar Madni who has a religious affiliation to Mirwaiz Yasir was also imprisoned for many days which is a sheer frustration,” Moulana Nisar Ahmed Nayeemi according to the statement said.
