Pays homage to Makhdoom Sahib (RA)

Srinagar, Nov 14: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Tuesday said our saints and spiritual leaders showed us the way of living a dignified life and taught us to strive for honour and dignity of humans.

Malik while addressing people at Dargah-i-Sultan ul Aarifeen Makhdoom Sahib, Srinagar said our saints and spiritual leaders showed us the path of wisdom, tolerance, struggle and steadfastness. “We have forgotten the teachings of these spiritual leaders and because of this ignorance we are today suffering in our daily lives,” he said.

Paying homage to Sheikh Hamza Makhdoom (RA), Malik said the great religious and spiritual leader taught Kashmiris the way of living with dignity and pride. “Hazrat Sheikh Hamza Makhdoom (RA) led us on the religious and spiritual fronts. It was this great thinker and spiritual leader who besides providing us the much needed religious and spiritual teachings also taught us the way of living with dignity and honour and resisting falsehood and tyranny,” he said.

Appealing for religious and sectarian tolerance, JKLF chairman said that promoting mutual brotherhood and unity is the only solution that can eradicate our miseries. “Unity is the remedy by which we can achieve our cherished goal and defeat the nefarious designs of our enemies. We should restore and save our brotherhood and unity and defeat all those forces who want to divide us in the name of sects, religions, ethnicities or regions,” he said.

Taking a dig on mainstream parties and politicians of Jammu Kashmir, Malik said they are “used for promoting a politics of deception by their Indian masters”. “In opposition, they chant freedom and human rights but as soon they get power, they fulfill their selfish goals,” he said.

JKLF chief said that the people of Jammu Kashmir are “fighting a war for their dignity, identity and liberation”. “As true Muslims, we all will have to stand by the side of truth, resist every kind of oppression till the achievement of the sacred goal,” he said.
