MMU aghast over sale of Covid orphans


Srinagar, December 03 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed serious concern over the media reports about some Kashmiri Covid orphans being sold in the markets of India by a local NGO, terming it extremely shameful and disgusting.

The MMU, a conglomerate of the leading religious, social and educational organisations of IIOJK, in a statement issued in Srinagar, said, “It is a matter of great sadness and shock that our Kashmir Valley which has been the land of saints and sages, such types of social evils and crimes against humanity are taking place. It is a moment of introspection for the entire nation of Kashmir in general and for the leaders and scholars, imams and conscious citizens in particular.”

“This is not a time to sit idle, but the need of the hour is to launch a full and organised campaign at all levels to accelerate overall reform and create awareness in the society in accordance with the teachings and guidance of sunnah,” the MMU said, adding that society needs to be aware of such vices and counter them.
