Srinagar , Mar 9 CNS: J&K Anjuman Sharie Shian has expressed deep displeasure over the fact that  that government has started preparations for conducting annual Amarnath ji Yatra and the same government maintains  hypocrisy ridden silence on removal of ban on 8 muharram procession and main Youm e Ashura Procession from AbiGuzar to Ali Park Zadibal.
Anjuman Sharie Shian’s Aga Syed Muntazir stated: “the discriminatory and myopic policies of the government have sabotaged this cultural heritage of Kashmir and sowed the seed of discord among the generations in past decades by banning the prime Muharram procession of Kashmir”.
Aga Muntazir said we are not against any religion or any religious pilgrimage but respect all religions however the authorities who are at the helm of affairs in Kashmir over past few decades have showed double standards by allowing Dussehra to Amaranth yatra and making all arrangements for the it and on the same parlance using iron fist against Muharram processions and Azadars who resist this unreasonable restrictions aptly showing cruel attitude.
J&K Anjuman e Sharie Shian hopes authorities and the ruling regime would in coming days feel the saner perspective and take steps on the burning demand.
