Srinagar: Expressing concern over growing immorality and extravagance in the society, Chairman Mutahida Majlis Ulma, Jammu and Kashmir, Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Umer Farooq said that thirty thousand girls in the Srinagar are waiting to get married as a result of social evils. He said that immorality and social evils are responsible for the situation and collective effort is needed to eradicate these social evils from the society. “Current situation in Kashmir is worse than before. Kashmir was considered as place of brotherhood, sympathy and morality but the land of Rishi’s has turned into a place of immoralities”, said Mirwaiz while addressing the Seerat Conference at Lal Bazar organized by Masjid Rehmat and locals volunteers. “Immorality is crossing limits and Nikah has become an affair of trade between two parties. We should think who is responsible for the 30,000 girls who can’t afford expenses of un Islamic and unethical traditions. Social evils and extravagance has worsened our society”, said Mirwaiz. He said that parents and guardians have lost control over their wards and “we all need to make collective effort to stop this all before it is too late”. He appealed the Islamic scholars, parents and other people to perform their responsibilities for betterment of the society.
