MMU said that the government order dated 16th June which is widely circulating on social media clearly stating governments plan to set up liquor shops at 67 locations in Kashmir valley is causing grave concern and anguish among the Muslims of the valley.
Any move by the administration regarding opening of liquor shops across the length and breadth of valley will not be allowed and will be strongly opposed and resisted by all the religious organizations, Ulemas and Muslims of the valley.
In a Statement to Wilayat Times, MMU said it is malafide that this government in the midst of the major global pandemic when all energies are focused on the fight against it is instead busy bringing in ordinances and rules to change the demography of the Muslim majority state and now by such orders is further assaulting our Muslim identity and values and hurting our religious sentiments .
MMU asked the government to immediately withdraw this immoral and anti-Islam order.
