SRINAGAR, Mar 13: Mutahida Ulema Council (MUC) today withdrew its shutdown call for Saturday.
The call was withdrawn in view of a request by Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
Grand Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam, who heads the Mutahida Ulema Council (MUC), said the MUC has withdrawn shutdown call.
“In view of the request made by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to revoke the shutdown called on Saturday, we have decided to withdraw the shutdown call. There will be no shutdown on Saturday,” said Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam.
Earlier today, Mirwaiz had requested the MUC to withdraw the shutdown call for Saturday.
On Tuesday, the MUC had appealed people to observe a complete shutdown on Saturday in view of summoning of Mirwaiz to New Delhi by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
On March 9, the NIA sent a notice to Mirwaiz asking him to appear in person before the agency’s court in New Delhi on March 11 in connection with a case filed into alleged funding of militancy in Kashmir.
The Mirwaiz, however, refused to fly to New Delhi citing “hostile security atmosphere”.
