Geelani congratulates Muslim Ummah on Ramzan
Srinagar: Congratulating Muslim Ummah on the start of the holy month of Ramzan, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that the month of fasting is an exercise of not only Ibadat but teaches its follower to look onto overall social wellbeing of the society.
In a statement issued here today, he said that today’s Muslim world presents a horrible look, with death and destruction visible all around. Enemies of Islam are busy in slaughtering and brutalizing Muslims, even the innocent kids and women are not spared. Rulers of almost all Muslim countries act as puppets, just to safeguard their power. They brazenly brutalize their own people for their petty interests of luxuries and status. Their wealth and national assets are mortgaged for weaponry, which is being used against their own population. They slit the throat of each other amongst the high pitched stlogans of “Alah-u-Akbar” and their enemy enjoys this bloodshed.
Geelani said that the month of Ramzan has started in this grim and gloomy atmosphere of Muslim Ummah. This short period of 30 days is a training period for its believers, to sharpen their soul and mind and prepare them for the hardships of their life. It prepares them for the permanent and eternal life which starts when the lease of worldly stay comes to an end and entering into the reality where everybody will be thoroughly checked of his baggage of deeds with their purity content.
