Quoting Quran, CM urges Imams to ‘show right path’

“Islam has stressed pursuit of knowledge and the ulema should spread this message so that Muslim community is able to find its way out of the difficulties it has been in for quite some time,” Mehbooba said.
Quoting several verses from the Holy Quran, the CM urged the Imams and ulema to come forward and show the right path to the younger generation as enshrined in the Holy Book and the teachings of the Prophet (SAW).
“Unfortunately Muslim ummah around the world has been caught in a web of violence and it is the utmost responsibility of the religious scholars to save the society from being misled down a wrong track,” Mehbooba said. “Teach and guide people on the issues plaguing the society like dowry deaths, harassment of women and other issues of HaququlIbaad (Duties towards Mankind)”.
Mehbooba said that having herself been raised in the family of preachers and ulema, she was well aware of the respect and command they ought to command in society.She said the loss of respect for the religious scholars in the society had led to societal decay and erosion of social values.
Mehbooba termed Wakf Board as “a community institution rather than an affiliate of any political party or group”.
Many projects of massive community help are under consideration of Wakf Board which would be of great help to humanity,” the CM said.
