Give Zakat as illegal military occupation has increased number of orphans, widows and sufferers: Malik

Srinagar, June 1: Chairman JKLF Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday said that desecration of graveyards, attacks on families of rivals, destroying their residential houses and fruit gardens and trying to burn down their families, incarcerating and torturing political leaders and activists is “inhuman, unethical and acts of cowardice”.

According to a statement issued to GNS, Malik while addressing a mammoth gathering at Masjid Bilal, The Bund, stressed upon the need to upkeep the rights of humans (Haqooq Ul Ibad) along with the rights of the Almighty,

He said that holy month of Ramadan teaches us to give preference to others and be kind to humanity. He said that Islam has established the institution of Zakat which is actually a blessing as if used properly this can eradicate poverty, vanish anarchy and immorality from our society.

“Our society which is hit by the catastrophe of illegal military occupation and is witnessing killings, destruction of properties and mayhem of every kind, has an increased number of orphans, widows and sufferers and our prime concern should be to look after these people, use our Zakat for their up-liftment as it is our prime duty according to Quran and Sunnah,” he said.

While condemning the plight of Kashmiri inmates languishing in different jails of India including Tihar Jail and the jails of Jammu Kashmir, JKLF chairman said that thousands of young and old are being “terrorized and tortured” in jails.

Demanding release of all political inmates on Eid, Malik said that ICRC and other international human rights organizations should take a note of these “atrocities” being committed on Kashmiri inmates and use their good offices to provide relief to these inmates.

Meanwhile, JKLF leaders and activists staged a peaceful protest against the plight of Kashmiri prisoners languishing in different Indian jails and incarceration centers of Jammu Kashmir, the statement said.
