Ban on Jamaat will deepen dissent: Mirwaiz

Srinagar, Mar 3: Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Molvi Umar Farooq on Sunday said that ban on Jamat-e-Islami will further deepen dissent in Kashmir keeping in view the engagement of hundreds of teachers and thousands of schools run by Jamat-e-Islami across Kashmir.

Taking to micro blogging social networking site twitter Mirwaiz wrote, “The undemocratic crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami greatly affects the lives of thousands of students and poor people who study and are supported by institutions run by them, is a matter of great worry for all. Such anti Kashmir and anti-Muslim moves will only push dissent further.”
