Srinagar: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference and Patron MutahidaMajlis-e-Ulema (MMU) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Monday asked the people in Kashmir especially youth not to get provoked, as there are always some elements present in societies who want to stoke sectarian and communal tensions among people to create rift between sects and communities.

Denouncing recent statements of some anti-unity and anti amity forces, Mirwaiz as per a statement issued here said that such speeches and utterances only create divisions and hatred especially at a time when entire nation is standing in unison and jointly offering priceless sacrifices for the cause of freedom.
Warning such elements, Mirwaiz said nobody would be allowed to damage the sectarian harmony and religious brotherhood of Kashmir and promised to fight these elements at all levels
Mirwaiz said that Ulemas and Imams of Masjids have a great role to play in constructing a better society and to maintain unity they should fulfill that responsibility and lead people towards the realization of Islamic ideals of compassion and tolerance.
