Death is journey to hereafter and we shall face the divine accountability of our doings and shall find outcome of our deeds accordingly, said Syed Ali Geelani while addressing the mourners.
Syed Ali Geelani during his address reminded the duties of faithful Muslims & said that as we belong to an oppressed nation and hence each and every soul must perform his assigned duties and resist tyrannical forces with available means.
Quoting the verses from Holy Quran, Syed Ali Geelani said that we shall be asked that when innocents were massacred, blinded, properties ransacked & why didn’t you feel the responsibility to raise voice. On the resurrection day, the people in response will reply that they were weak, scared and couldn’t find any way out to help oppressed and oppose tyrannical forces. He will be asked that Lord’s land was vast enough to live in and had an option to leave the territory. We are obliged, either we must fight the tyrannical forces with available source or leave the place.
In present circumstance, it is impossible to migrate as there are compulsions but no lame excuse for maintaining silence, said Geelani.
In given circumstances, we need to exhibit our determination, commitment and resolve for resolution of sacred goal, said Syed Ali Geelani.
Syed Ali Geelani said that let us pledge that we won’t budge before these forces and will pursue our mission with zeal and commitment. (KNS)
