Mirwaiz said that mobilization at all level including at the grassroots level of Masjid and Mohalla Committees needs to be undertaken to launch a mass agitation with full force which is being done. He said every person man or woman has to play a role and be ready to defend their very existence.
Strongly denouncing the fresh notices issued to the Syed Ali Geelani and Muhammad Yasin Malik by the enforcement directorate, Mirwaiz said that these “ploys” have outlived their effectiveness and people of J&K are well aware of the motive behind them which is to intimidate and malign the leadership.
