Srinagar – A day after the Muttahida Ulama-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat (MUAS) made a similar appeal, the Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) also called for a total shutdown on Tuesday to protest against a US-originated derogatory film on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
A spokesman said that the film had deeply hurt the sentiments of Muslims across the world who would not tolerate insults to their religion.
As Muslims, it is incumbent on not only to condemn such despicable acts but also to counter them as these are issues linked to our lives in this world and in the hereafter, the KEA chief Muhammad Yasin said.
Urging Muslim countries to frame laws enabling the prosecution of such elements, Khan said that acts like the film in question imperil world peace. Observer News Service
