Srinagar, June 08: The Muttahida Majlise-e-Ulama (MMU), which includes all the heads of religious sects and educational institutions of Jammu and Kashmir and led by Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, has expressed serious concern over a viral video on social media sent to them also , in which a group of outsiders are openly drinking alcohol on a shikara in the Dal lake . MMU strongly condemns this act and the fact that it has been allowed to take place in Kashmir.
While public consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited under the law, why and how it has been allowed is a matter of worry .

The Majlis-e-Ulama said, “The people of Kashmir are hospitable and respect tourists visiting the valley as guests. However, such un-Islamic and unethical practices will not be tolerated in the Muslim majority valley which is the land of saints and Sufi’s . Consumption of alcohol strictly prohibited in Islam for its disastrous ill effects and deprivation of society cannot be allowed to go unchecked .
MMU appeals to hotel owners, houseboat owners and Shikara operators to keep an eye on such wrong doings and totally stay away from indulging in this of un-Islamic and immoral practice for profit . It also appealed the tourists to respect moral and religious ethos of Kashmir.
