Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Saturday expressed concern over the bad condition of traditional professions and crafts of Kashmir, he said that youth should opt for traditional artisanships.
He said during a Seerat Conference organized by Anjuman-e-Nusrat-ul-Islam in the central auditorium of Islamia Higher Secondary School, Rajouri Kadal, saidthat there were times when Kashmir was economically stable but now people are looking down upon such professions and giving up, which had made people dependent on others.
The unemployed youth, particularly the educated would be extremely difficult to get rid of unemployment till they do not value the dignity of labour and engage themselves with the art and crafts of Kashmir.
Mirwaiz further suggested the youth to brighten their talent and come forward to promote the traditional professions of earning as no profession was prohibited in Islam which ensures Halal earning.
He said the need of the hour was that youth instead of craving for government jobs should opt and promote the traditional artisanship which had for long been an important component of a stable economy in Kashmir.
