He said given the seriousness of the issue, Karwan-e-Islami is busy in anti-liquor drive and has made the lifestyle (seerat) of beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) as a tool to fight this growing menace. The best way to fight the menace, Alama Hami said is to follow the footprints of beloved Prophet (SAW) and the great and revered saints of Kashmir, who put their blood and sweat to bring Islam in its true and pristine form to the door steps of Kashmiris.

Alama Hami said that the arrival of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) in this world triggered an explosion of knowledge of which world is reaping benefits to date even as scientists too are working on the sayings of greatest prophet (SAW).

Alama Hami said that shocking details have come from the SMHS report that says in the recent times, 10,500 youth have registered with the hospital to get rid of the growing drug abuse.

Paying rich tributes to the grandson of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW), Hazrat Imam-e-Hussain (AS), who rejected the Yazeed’s compromise offer and instead decided to prefer martyrdom of himself and his entire family including infants in the grounds of Karbala, Alama Hami said that Imam Hussain (AS) left a great lesson of truth and great belief for us to learn and to follow.
