In a series of tweets, Lone said that Mirwaiz is a religious head and his continued detention for the last four years is a crime against him. He said the Mirwaiz has himself been a victim of violence and leads forces of moderation and has stuck to utterances which represent the true essence of Islam.

Lone tweeted: “Spare a thought for @MirwaizKashmir He is under continued detention for the last four years. And none of us has talked about him. My apologies. We may differ politically but he inspires us as a religious head. A religious head who spearheaded the forces of moderation.”

“@MirwaizKashmir has stuck to utterances which are moderate and represent the true essence of Islam. He has religious duties. His continued incarceration is a crime against him and against all those whom he inspires at a religious level.”

“humble appeal to @AmitShah sahib and @manojsinha_ sahib to please ensure that he is released as soon as possible. He has himself been a victim of violence. Let it be known. There r many wars in Kashmir. And in our real war he is an unapologetic moderate.”
