KUNZER: Jama’at-e-Islami Tehsil Tangmarg on Sunday held a day-long annual congregation at Kunzer, Batpora here in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
The programme was attended by thousands of people with Qaim-e-Jama’at Ghulam Qadir Lone stressing for strict adherence to the tenets of Islamic Shariah.
In his address, Lone deliberated on the parameters that govern the mankind “from cradle to grave” and said that until the teachings of Islam are not followed in letter and spirit, the real peace, prosperity and progress was a distant dream.
“Quran has laid much stress on adhering to the principles of justice; be it social, political or economic,” he said adding that “Adal” or justice was among the basic tenets of Islam.
“Uncertainty in society is due to injustice and only implementation of Islamic teachings can ensure justice in the society. Delivery of justice is must for peace to prevail,” Lone added.
He said that Muslims should introspect whether they are following Islamic teachings in their daily life or not.
Explaining the stand of Jama’at-e-Islami on Kashmir issue, Qaim-e-Jama’at said, “From the day one, Jama’at-e-Islami has been advocating resolution of Kashmir dispute according to wishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people.”
He said that any resolution which is against the aspirations of Kashmiri people will be rejected.
“The resolution to Kashmir dispute must be sought as per UN resolutions or through tripartite talks,” he said.
He also asked new dispensation in New Delhi led by Narendra Modi to “be serious and sincere about resolving Kashmir issue”.
“Jama’at-e-Islami has never been an underground movement but a party with the objective made public. The organisation has been working for it in public domain,” he said.
