Kashmir Mufti asks US citizens to leave Kashmir

The top clergyman in Srinagar, Mufti Azam Bashiruddin, on Thursday asked US citizens to leave the Kashmir valley immediately to avoid public wrath in the wake of video clips on the web that disparage Prophet Mohammed.

Speaking to the TOI, the Mufti, the self-appointed chief justice of the ‘shariat’ (Islamic) court in Kashmir, asked people to observe complete strike on Friday in protest against the film.

“I strongly condemn the act and appeal to Kashmiris to register their protest against the film and even attack US citizens if they are seen anywhere in the Valley from tomorrow,” the Mufti Azam said.
