MMU launches campaign to encourage COVID vaccination

Srinagar, June 18 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU), a conglomerate of religious bodies, headed by incarcerated Chairman of Hurriyat Forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while expressing serious concern over the reluctance of the majority of people in Srinagar to get vaccinated against COVID-19, has stressed upon masses to shun vaccine hesitancy and get their jabs to save themselves, their fellows and society from the deadly virus.

As per the MMU decision, today in their Friday sermons, the Imams, Khateebs and Waaizeen of masaajids, khanqahs, shrines and imambarahs across the Valley would sensitize people about the importance of Covid vaccination. They will make it clear to people that getting vaccinated is neither against the teachings of Islam nor does any Shariah ruling prevent Muslims from taking vaccine against a disease; and that Islam encourages and even stresses on taking precautionary measures in matters concerning the health and safety of a human being, the MMU statement said.

MMU, has also started a campaign through posters and social media so that the people realize the seriousness of the issue and not exhibit any kind of carelessness in this regard.
