Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressed the Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid Srinagar after being released from house arrest, the spokesman said in a statement.
Referring to the situation, Mirwaiz said that the current situation is an extremely difficult and trying period for the people of Jammu and Kashmir especially for those of in the valley. He said constantly new threats and challenges emerge for people as a consequence of force and the unending status quo to undermine our very existence.
“It is the remarkable resilience and determination of the people and their daunting spirit that keeps us going and not giving up,” he said.
Mirwaiz said in such a difficult and testing time our faith in Allah’s help and blessing becomes our ultimate recourse and our faith in that recourse becomes our strength and Insha Allah will never let us down.
He said such a time is also an opportunity for us as Muslims to look inward and recommit ourselves to upholding and practising the simple but great values and ethics of Islam and become better as humans.
Mirwaiz said following the footsteps of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) will definitely mitigate our suffering and ensure our life becomes easy even in these hard times.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) has strongly condemned the summoning of sons of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin including Syed Shakeel Ahmed, Syed Javaid Ahmed, Syed Abdul Waheed, Syed Abdul Waheed and also his son in law Umar Farooq stating that this “oppressive” step can’t break the resolve of people of Kashmir or the leadership and that all these repressive steps are destined to taste defeat, statement said.
