As MMU chairman Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Umar Farooq could not participate due to his continued house detention, the meeting was chaired by Agha Syed Hassan Mosvi Alsafvi and participated by the heads and representatives of various religious organisations among whom include Mufti Azam J&K Mufti Nasir-Ul-Islam, Maulana Masroor Abbas Ansari, Agha Syed Mohammad Hadi Mosavi, Mufti Muhammad Ishaq Nazki, Moulvi Muhammad Ashraf Inayati, Maulana Khursheed Ahmad Qanungo, Maulana Lateef Ahmad Bukhari, Mufti Ghulam Rasool Samoon, Maulana Fareed-ur-Rehman Bukhari, Maulana Ghulam Rasool Noori, Maulana Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Dr.Agha Syed Mudasir Rizvi, Moulana Ghulam Hussain Mattoo, MMU Secretary Maulana M S Rehman Shams and dozens of other Ulema and Mashaaikh.

The meeting said this sacrilegious act by Wasim Rizvi has deeply hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims across the world and looked as part of a deep-rooted conspiracy aimed at stoking sectarian tension among Muslims.

On the occasion, an emergency press conference was also held during which a unanimous resolution was passed that strongly condemned the blasphemous act by this man.

On the occasion, the religious leaders asked the Government of India (GoI) to  immediately arrest Wasim Rizvi for resorting to blasphemy and attempting to create sectarian rift among Muslims. They also demanded stern punishment to him.

The resolution also maintained that as per the international laws, no petition against any religion or holy book, can be entertained in any court of law. It said the petition in the Supreme Court of India was a serious issue for the Muslims so it must be dismissed forthwith.

The resolution stressed communal zealots like Wasim Rizvi must not be linked with any religion or sect.

The resolution demanded immediate release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir who has been under house arrest since August 5, 2019, so that he leads people during such sensitive matters and fulfills  his responsibilities.
