Aga Hasan condemns Jamia Masjid incident

Budgam, Dec 31 2018

Anjuman Shari Shaian Monday strongly condemned what it termed the attempted desecration of pulpit of Jamia Masjid here in Srinagar.

President Anjuman Shari Shian, Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi said that some masked youth after the Friday prayers had waved the flags of ISIS and raised slogans from the pulpit of Jamia Masjid here. “This action is condemnable as we terrorist organization like ISIS can’t be lauded from the pulpits of historic Jamia Masjid,” he said.

Aga Syed Hasan said that ISIS has already been declared a Millitant organization in countries like Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan where this outfit resorted to barbarism and vandalism.

He lamented that social media is being used to malign the image of Shia community. “It is unfortunate that some miscreants want to create a wedge in the society,” he said.

He said that it is not the first time that such a shameful act of hooliganism has been done. “In the past too, some elements at the behest of certain agencies and handlers have indulged in rowdyism and hooliganism in and outside the Jamia Masjid,” he said.

He added that the motive of these agencies is to weaken and disunite the ongoing people’s movement of the right to self determination, and these elements are being used to divert this just movement by changing its basic nature and character under the pretence of perusing some global agenda.
