SRINAGAR: Chief of Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) and his faction of Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has extended Eid-ul-Fitr greetings to the Muslims saying if the message of Eid was followed in letter and spirit, it would help the entire world blossom. He said only those people deserved to be felicitated who tried to follow the message of holy Qur’an and fulfill their duties during the month of Ramadan.
In a statement, Mirwaiz said as far as celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr in Jammu Kashmir was concerned, people would, this year too, pray that their innumerable sacrifices do not go waste and resolve to carry forward the resistance struggle until their just struggle reaches its logical conclusion.
He said the Islamic world including Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Kashmiri Muslims was caught in a quagmire with innocent people being killed in bloodshed.
“The message of Eid on this occasion for the Muslim Ummah should collectively stand in unity against the anti-Islamic and oppressive forces to foil their nefarious designs,” he said.
He paid tributes to Hurriyat leaders and freedom-loving people of Kashmir, who have been held in various jails and detention centres in Jammu Kashmir and outside for their resolve and steadfastness toward the resistance movement, and prayed for their good health.
Mirwaiz hoped that the well-off people would help the poor and the destitute, the needy and the orphans. He called upon people to observe Eid-ul-Fitr with austerity and simplicity.
