Srinagar, April 16: Deputy Mayor Srinagar Shiekh Mohammad Imran on Tuesday started ‘I am Mujahid’ campaign from Mujahid Manzil of Downtown in Srinagar. He appealed Islamic clerics in Kashmir to highlight the meaning of Jihad and Mujahid in upcoming Friday.
Beginning his campaign at historic Pather Masjid in Downtown, Imran said the meaning of Islamic terms has been interpreted in a wrong way but as a Muslims, we have a responsibility to act against it.
To start from Mujahid Manzil, Imran said the campaign reminds us of the sacrifices that were made by our people in the year 1931. He urged youth to come forward and make the campaign successful in the whole world.
“Apart from Indian states, I am getting calls from UK, USA, and other countries to start the campaign from there but we have started this initiative from Srinagar,” Imran said.
“To give a befitting reply to communal forces, the youth across the globe should use prefix Mujahid in front of their names. When lakhs of people in a single voice will raise the awareness about Islam it will help to counter Islam phobia in the world,” he said.
Imran said Muslims across the globe are being divided into different sects and divisions. He urged all Muslims across the world to use prefix Mujahid in front of their names and clear mis-confusion about Islam.
