SrinagarPresident Anjuman Sahrie Shiayan Aga Syed Hasan has extended his good wishes to Muslim Ummah on the birth anniversary of Hazrat Imam Ali Reza .
While addressing on Friday congregation, senior separatist leader threw light on the life and teachings of Imam Rzza and his contribution in Islam.
He said Imam Ali is respected for his courage, knowledge, belief, honesty, unbending devotion to Islam.
Imam Ali Reza imbibed from his father his knowledge, morals and good manners. He was, thus, the most acknowledged scholar and the most qualified to be the leader and the guide of Muslims.
Castigating government for resorting to arrests, raids, killings, house arrests, ransacking, curfew and restrictions, Aga Hasan appealed human rights organizations to take note of Indian brutalities in Kashmir.
He said it has become a routine for Indian troopers to shot dead civilians in every nook and cranny of Kashmir.
Calling forces action as ruthless, Aga Hasan expressed his resentment over the civilian killings and said that it is absolute state terrorism.
After routine combat and encounters between armed youth, forces in retaliation target civilians and ransack properties. It is unjustified and such retributions tantamount to war crimes, said Aga Hasan.
