Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) and patron Anjuman-e-Nusratul Islam Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has paid glorious tributes to Mirwaiz Ahmedullah Shah (RA) on his 88th passing away anniversary. Mirwaiz termed him as a great spiritual, religious and social leader and a true “Ashiq-e-Rasool (SAW)”.According to a statement issued to GNS, Mirwaiz while speaking at the Friday gathering at Jamia Masjid highlighted the religious and social contributions of Mirwaiz Ahmedullah (RA) and stated that in 1890, when the then Mirwaiz also known as Sir Syed-e-Kashmir Moulana Rasool Shah (RA), started a mass campaign to eradicate illiteracy and to spread the light of Islam by laying the foundation of Anjuman-e-Nusratul Islam, Mirwaiz Ahmedullah Shah (RA) was designated as the vice-president of the institution.According to historians, Mirwaiz said, that Mirwaiz Ahmedullah (RA) left no stone unturned to spread the light of education and Islam in every corner of Kashmir especially in Srinagar.

He said that Mirwaiz Ahmedullah Shah (RA) was the first signatory to the memorandum submitted to the then Indian viceroy in which basic aspirations of people of Kashmir were highlighted apart from the atrocities being inflicted on the common Kashmiri Muslims by the “autocratic” Maharajas.“Mirwaiz Ahmedullah Shah (RA) while following the footsteps of his ancestors always protected and safeguarded the interests of Kashmir and Kashmiri people and also guided the people of Kashmir to fight against issues triggered by certain Sects against which a vibrant campaign was launched across Kashmir,” he said.Mirwaiz said that the best way to pay tributes to Mirwaiz Ahmedullah Shah (RA) is to impart both formal and religious education to our youth and strengthen the institution of Anjuman-e-Nusratul Islam and to spread his Islamic and spiritual teachings.Special prayers were also recited in favour of Mirwaiz Ahmedullah (RA) on the occasion.
