SRINAGAR: Socio-religious organization Anjuman-i-Ulmai Ahnaf (AUA) Wednesday threatened to launch an agitation if liquor trade in Srinagar city was not be stopped within two weeks.
Majlis-e-Shura meeting of AUA was held in Srinagar that was presided over by Chairman AUA Maulana Akhzar Hussain. During the meeting it was resolved that if liquor shops in Batwara and Dalgate were not closed then AUA would take people into confidence and start a massive agitation against this menace.
Akhzar said that, we have given 15 days ultimatum not only to the owners of liquor shops but we have also shot a letter to Excise Department urging upon them to wind up liquor business in Kashmir particularly in Srinagar city, he said.
Akhzar further said that a massive agitation would be launched after the expiry of the deadline and government would be responsible for all the repercussions.
