Srinagar, February 02 (KMS): Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) Jammu Kashmir, headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who continues to be under arbitrary house arrest, has expressed grave concern over the deteriorating social fabric, especially in the Valley.
The MMU in a statement in Srinagar said, “Our society as a whole is deteriorating at every level,” and termed the acid attack on a girl at Hawal in Srinagar as extremely shameful and unfortunate.
The occurrence of such incidents in the Muslim-majority region, which is known as the Valley of Saints, calls for introspection for all of us, the MMU said.
The Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema urged the leaders of religious, and educational institutions, scholars, preachers and imams, as well as members of civil society, conscious citizens to call on parents to keep an eye on children and strive for their better upbringing in order to ensure a peaceful social life and a dignified society, besides inculcating Islamic and moral values among the children.
The MMU underscored the need for a positive and constructive role at individual levels in bringing out a comprehensive social reform and in this regard it urged people to come forward to save Kashmiri society from various social problems. In this regard, a representative meeting of the Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema will be convened soon, the statement said.
