urges Ulemas and Islamic scholars to create awareness about rights and status of women in Islam




Srinagar, June 11, (Scoop News)-Strongly advocating for providing space for women to pray in mosques, Mutahida Majlis-e-ulema patron Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Monday said that the great religion of Islam emphasised participation of women and their due share.

He said that we need to understand and accord the rights guaranteed to women by Islam . He said denying them amounts to great injustice to them.

Addressing an impressive gathering after laying the foundation stone of a Masjid at Hawal srinagar, MMU chief welcomed the interest shown by the youth towards Islam and their desire to practice and follow the path shown by the great Prophet. He said the solution to most problems faced by us is provided in the Quran and Sunnah provided we look for it .

MMU chief said it is the basic responsibility of Ulema and Islamic scholars to create mass awareness about the rights and status of women in Islam during their sermons , lectures and writings and also educate women about it. He said the respect they deserve in their homes and at their in-Laws should also be stressed upon by Ulemas and scholars.

He said Ulemas should frequently raise issues of injustices towards women in society which includes domestic violence , demand for dowries , harassment at in-laws homes , issuers related to women’s right to property and all such things that they are confronted with .

MMU chief said that Kashmiri society has to play a collective role in ensuring protection to women....
