Commemorative Rally at historic Aali Masjid called off due to COVID
Srinagar: Jammu & Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) has paid glorious tribute to Shuhada-e-Badr and J&K’s great Islamic scholar, founder of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Kashmir, Muhajir-e-Millat and Mufasir-e-Qur’an Mirwaiz Moulana Yousuf Shah (RA) on his 54th passing away anniversary.
The AAC recalled Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah’s religious, political, social and literary contribution and paid rich tribute to him for his Dawat-o-Tableegh and Tafseer-e-Qur’an which is widely read saying the people of Kashmir are indebted to the Muhajir-e-Millat for his selfless services.
The translation and commentary of the holy Qur’an in Kashmiri language by the late Mirwaiz put Kashmir on the global Islamic map and greatly helped in spread and understanding the message of Qur’an in vernacular language.
The AAC also recalled the great services and contribution of Muhajir-e-Millat towards creating religious, political and social awareness among the masses in J&K and providing leadership and guidance to them.
Due to the “second wave” of coronavirus Covid-19 and the continued house detention of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, the commemorative rally at historic Aali Masjid, Eidgah, stands cancelled
In view of the present situation, the people of Jammu & Kashmir across the divide remember their beloved leader and pay tribute to him for his selfless social, religious and political contribution with the pledge that despite the unfavourable and distressing circumstances, the mission of the Muhajir-e-Millat will be taken to its logical conclusion.
The way the Muhajir-e-Millat Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah (RA) led the people of Kashmir despite facing exile and hardships and stood by his stand and principles till the last breath is exemplary and the Awami Action Committee and its leadership is committed to take forward that mission and continue its peaceful struggle.
The AAC said the late Mirwaiz’s political stand of honouring the will of people of J&K for which he suffered exile cannot be forgotten and is the way to peace and prosperity in the subcontinent.
Tomorrow, on 17th Ramadhan-ul-Mubarak, the AAC has appealed to people to remember the Shuhada-e-Badr in their prayers, pray for Jannat-ul-Firdous to Muhajir-e-Millat Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah (RA), and ask Allah to grant us refuge from the ongoing pandemic.
Meanwhile, the Awami Action Committee has expressed strong resentment over the 21-month-long unlawful and arbitrary house detention of its Chairman Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq and demanded release of the Mirwaiz along with other political prisoners, youth and civil society members before Eid.
