Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik Thursday said it is a matter of concern that CRPF is required to save a brother from a brother. Referring to group clashes in parts of Srinagar, he said, “It is a big tragedy and shame for us that today CRPF personnel from UP, Bihar and other Indian states stand at our door steps to safeguard our property and families, as we face danger not from any enemy but from our own Muslim brethren.” “Condemning and protesting against acts of blasphemy is a right of every Muslim but is it reasonable and based on wisdom that Muslims rather than condemning the criminal act of the show company start fighting each other. Is it honorable for us that today we fear our own Muslim brothers and some CRPF has to guard our houses and families.” Malik said some agencies were desperate to divide Muslims of J&K in the name of sects. “And that is why we are keeping close contact with every sect and always try to guard the unity among Muslims.” “Everyone knows that there are some miscreants and trouble makers who are always keen to divide Muslims, but at the same time we know that they are a minority.” Calling for efforts to forge sectarian unity, the JKLF chief said, “It is high time for the reasonable and right thinking people of our society to come out of their slumber and put their efforts together and extinguish this dangerous fire. If we fail to stand for this just cause as early as possible no Mosque, Imam Barah or Khankah will be safe.”
