Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema Jammu and Kashmir, headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Wednesday sternly warned ‘elements’ trying to harm communal amity and unity in Jammu and Kashmir by stoking sectarian tensions.
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.
Responding sharply to such activities, MMU said that no individual or organization 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 urged 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.
