“We have been taught by Allah and his Last Messenger (SAW) to provide monetary assistance to poor, destitute, homeless and prisoners. Even among the eight ways in which Zakat is to be used, the poor, destitute and homeless have to be given priority and preference, according to Qur’an and Sunnah,” he said.
Malik said New Delhi was busy killing our young and old, destroying our residential houses and properties and ruining our families. “We as a nation are duty-bound to rebuild and rehabilitate these persecuted families,” he said.
According to statement, JKLF chairman visited Zunreshi Chowkibal in Kupwara, and Aripal Tral and Pampore in Pulwama on Sunday and Monday where he met with the families of the youth killed recently and also those whose houses and other properties have been destroyed “by Indian forces”.
Malik expressed solidarity with the families and appealed the affluent people to fulfill their duty in this regard. “Kashmiri nation is a living nation which is striving for its freedom and right to self determination and has collectively rendered precious sacrifices for this righteous cause and we are hopeful that as a nation we will not fail those among us who are victimised and wronged by Indian militarized violence,” he said.
