Celebrate Eid with austerity: Geelani to people
Srinagar, June 13: While extending his heartfelt Eid Greetings to the Muslim Ummah, Chairman Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani said Eid is the day of expressing gratitude to Almighty Allah and seeking His blessings.
It is also the day of expressing solidarity with the families of our martyrs, destitute and orphans. It is the day of rejuvenating the spirit of freedom in Eidgahs, said Geelani in a statement and appealed people to remember the destitute section of the society on the Eid-ul-Fitr.
Syed Ali Geelani said it should be understood by a Muslim that difficulties and hardships are inevitable and the objective of all of them is to turn him strong and added that a true believer would only feel relief and relaxed, while following commandments of Holy Quran.
He said that the Eid is although a day of happiness and blessings, but the Kashmiri nation had so far missed the real spirit of this day because of the atrocities and the cruel behaviour of the Indian forces against the common people.
While appealing the people to celebrate the Eid with austerity and simplicity and according to the Islamic principles, Syed Ali Geelani said that the Eid-ul-Fiter is the day of sharing celebrations with orphans, widows and poor class of society.
