Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) Jammu and Kashmir, headed by the incarcerated Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has sternly warned elements trying to ‘harm communal amity and unity in Jammu and Kashmir by stoking sectarian tensions here.’
All the leading constituents of the MMU in a joint statement said that it has come to their notice that two preachers from two sects are indulging in some kind of sectarian one upmanship by holding debates to disprove the other.
MMU in the statement further said that no individual or organisation can be allowed to indulge in establishing sectarian hegemony and harm the centuries-old sectarian harmony here.
In this regard, on the directions of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir, a high-level delegation of Majlis-e-Ulema will meet with these people to dissuade them from holding the meetings .
MMU said that it urges all Ulemas and scholars that they should focus on preaching and promoting the great teachings of Islam in their respective spheres and work on dealing with social issues seriously challenging our social fabric
