SRINAGAR: The best way to honour the venerated people like Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani (RA) is to detach ourselves from the forces of evil and remain steadfast with truth and spirituality,” said Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday while addressing people at Buqa Aaliya Gousia, Sarai Bala here.
Malik also called for election boycott saying the exercise is only meant to “strengthen the Indian occupation” in Kashmir.
“We all need to follow the teachings of our revered ancestors, saints and spiritual leaders in letter and spirit who showed us the way of wisdom, tolerance, struggle and steadfastness,” Malik said. “We have forgotten the teachings of these spiritual leaders due to which we are suffering today.”
Paying tributes to the revered saint, JKLF chief said Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani (RA) led us on religious and spiritual fronts. “It was this great thinker and spiritual leader who besides providing us the much needed religious and spiritual knowledge also taught us the way of living with dignity and honour and adhering to the truth,” he said.
“How can we call ourselves the followers of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani (RA) when we are not ready to follow the tenets and principles rendered by him,” he said.
Appealing for religious tolerance and sectarian brotherhood among Muslims, Malik said promoting mutual brotherhood is the only solution that can eradicate our miseries.
Terming Kashmir issue as a living reality, JKLF chairman said the people of Jammu Kashmir are “fighting a war of their future and welfare”.
