Mirwaiz's anti-India sermon triggers stone-pelting in Srinagar's old city
8/18/2017 9:54:01 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 18: Hurriyat dove Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who was allowed to deliver a Friday sermon at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar's old city after 57-days today, again spewed venom against India, following which clashes between the Security Forces and the miscreants broke out in the area.
A police official said, "Stopping Mirwaiz from delivering sermon on Fridays in Jamia Masjid had led to the situation improving in the area as we did not witness any major stone-pelting incidents in absence of Mirwaiz. With his return stone pelting has returned." During his sermon, Mirwaiz claimed that India cannot resolve the Kashmir issue by killing terrorists and if it kills one terrorist ten will stand up. A source said the CID wing of the Jammu and Kashmir Police and intelligence agencies have submitted enough evidence to the state and central government about Mirwaiz provoking the youth to pelt the stones and attack the security forces. "There are strong recommendations that he (Mirwaiz) should not be allowed to incite the youth to indulge in subversive activities," he added.
An official wishing anonymity said, "If centre and the state want stone pelting to end and peace to be restored then government should take stern action against the separatists who leave no opportunity to put Kashmir on fire."
Asked what kind of stern action, the official said, "Police and other agencies have got enough evidences against the separatists. They can be booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and sent to prison till normalcy returns to Kashmir."
The official said, "We had really worked hard to restore peace in Srinagar's old city for the past six weeks. One anti-India sermon has undone all the hard work we had done."
A source said, "Supporters of Hurriyat dove in old city want to challenge the government's writ by resorting to stone pelting. Very soon crackdown against them would be launched and they would be put behind the bars."
He said, "Authorities have taken a strong note of Mirwaiz's anti-India sermon in Jamia Masjid and the stone pelting which ensued after the Hurriyat dove left."
Soon after Friday prayers ended in Jamia Masjid clashes broke out between the miscreants and the security forces in Nowhatta area, near the grand mosque, the source added.
He said many people were wounded in the clashes. "The government should take a final call over the separatists, who can go to any extent to appease their bosses sitting across the Line of Control. By fomenting trouble in Kashmir they make their bosses happy and get money in return," said an official.
