Srinagar: Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU), a socio-religious conglomerate has launched multiple campaigns to persuade people to shun vaccine hesitancy and take the vaccine shots to save themselves, their fellows and society from the deadly virus.
On the directions of its incarcerated chief patron Mirwaiz Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, the amalgam started a campaign through posters and social media so that the people realise the seriousness of the issue and not exhibit any kind of carelessness in this regard, a spokesperson said.
Besides it, he said, MMU has also decided that the Imams, Khateebs and Waaizeen of mosques, shrines and imambarahs across the Valley would sensitise people about the importance of Covid vaccination.
“They will make it clear to people that getting vaccinated is neither against the teachings of Islam nor does any Shariah ruling prevent Muslims from taking vaccine against a disease; and that Islam encourages and even stresses on taking precautionary measures in matters concerning the health and safety of a human being,” the Majlis spokesperson said.
