Srinagar:Appealing people to maintain religious harmony and brotherhood, All Parties Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Umar Farooq asked people not to fall in the provocation trap of some elements who were trying to stoke sectarian and communal tensions in Kashmir by creating a rift between Shias and Sunnis.
Denouncing the acts of these anti-unity forces in a particular area of Shehar-e-Khas, an APHC (M) statement said these acts were harming sectarian and religious brotherhood in Kashmir and that all this was being done at a time when entire Kashmir was standing in unison and people were offering sacrifices for the cause of freedom.
The statement said at this time, certain agencies had become active and were busy devising plans to set Kashmir afire by stoking sectarian and communal passions.
Stressing that for the past several months Kashmiris had been offering selfless sacrifices of their lives and properties and shown consistency in resolve while displaying unity toward the resistance movement, the APHC (M) statement termed these sacrifices as exemplary saying they had once again brought Kashmir issue in the focus at the international level.
The statement said this had unnerved the elements working against the interests of the people and the resistance movement, who were now trying to stoke sectarian and communal tensions to create discord between the people and play havoc with the uneasy calm prevalent in Kashmir.
Condemning the actions of the anti-resistance movement forces and anti-social elements who were trying to set Kashmir afire, the statement said nobody would be allowed to damage the sectarian harmony and religious brotherhood and promised to fight these elements at all levels.
