Syed Ali Geelani greets Muslims on Eid


While extending his heartfelt Eid greetings to Muslim Ummah, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said Eid is the day of expressing gratitude to Almighty Allah and seeking His blessings.

“It is also the day of expressing solidarity with the families of our martyrs, destitute and orphans. It is the day of rejuvenating the spirit of freedom in Eidgahs,” Geelani said in a statement issued to the news agency GNS and appealed people to remember the destitute on Eid-ul-Fitr.

Geelani said the holy month of Ramadhan was a period to seek blessings of Almighty Allah and rejuvenate our, sentiments, faith and spirit. “As such, the inspiration that Ramadhan should serve as a guideline for future and should be followed during the entire year so that reforms in society are brought in the real sense,” he said.

“We should not forget the families, orphans and widows of those people who have sacrificed their precious lives for the better future of their nation. We have to be extremely kind to the families who had miserably suffered during the ongoing freedom struggle of Kashmir,” he added.

Hurriyat (G) chairman said though Eid is a day of happiness and blessings, “but the Kashmiri nation had so far missed the real spirit of this day because of the atrocities and the cruel behaviour of the Indian occupational forces against the common people and the people of this troubled region are miserably suffering for the last seven decades”.

Appealing people to celebrate Eid with austerity and simplicity and according to the Islamic principles, Geelani said Eid-ul-Fitr is the day of sharing celebrations with orphans, widows and poor class of society.

He appealed religious clerics, Ulema and Aima Masajid to pray and seek blessings from Almighty Allah to realize the dream of freedom.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
