Srinagar, March 16: Addressing a mammoth gathering on the occasion of Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid Darigam, Budgam near the revered shrine of Hazrat Sheikh Noorudin Noorani (RA), Alama Hami said that what has set the alarm bells ringing that not only the youth belonging to the rich families, but students in schools and colleges across Kashmir have fallen prey to the growing drug and liquor abuse.
Alama Hami urged the responsible members of civil society to rise to the occasion and to start counselling of youth in their respective localities to ensure Kashmir’s young generation is saved. He also urged the Ulema and clerics to play their role in stopping the use of drugs and liquor among the youth in Kashmir and to deliver sermons on these grave issues on Fridays.
Alama Hami said that Kashmir’s civil society and intellectuals should work hard to ensure complete ban on the sale of liquor and drugs given the fact that open sale of liquor can’t be tolerated in a muslim dominated region like Kashmir.
Alama Hami said that every member of Karwan-e-Islami would play his role in ensuring ban of liquor and would actively take part in mass awareness campaign of the impact caused by the use of drugs including liquor
Alama Hami expressed his serious concern over the growing escalation of tensions on the borders stating that every citizen of Kashmir living under a constant fear and its high time for the two nations India and Paksitan to take concrete steps to mitigate the sufferings of people of Kashmir and to resolve the issue once for all.
Alama Hami also termed it unfortunate that on the name of encounters, innocent people of Kashmir are subjected to torture, harassment while their properties too are vandalised.
