Srinagar, June 15, 2024 – As Eid al-Adha approaches, socioeconomic and political activist Syed Basharat Hussain, also known as Moosa, has issued a heartfelt plea to shopkeepers across Jammu & Kashmir.

In a phone briefing with several media outlets, Syed Basharat Hussain highlighted the recurrent issue of price hikes during festive seasons, which disproportionately affect the most vulnerable members of society. He emphasized that prices of essential items such as meat, chicken, vegetables, bakery goods, and garments often skyrocket during these times, creating undue hardship for many families.

“We all witness that every festival the prices hike,” Syed Basharat Hussain remarked. “It’s time we take collective responsibility and ensure that this Eid, we focus on affordability and accessibility for all.”

Addressing shopkeepers directly, Moosa appealed to their sense of community and empathy. “Let’s be responsible citizens and play our role. By keeping prices reasonable, we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the festival without financial stress.”

His message resonated deeply, reflecting not just economic concerns but also a call for communal solidarity. “Eid al-Adha is a time of generosity, sacrifice, and sharing. By controlling prices, we embody the true spirit of the festival, making sure that no one is left behind.”

Beyond his economic appeal, Syed Basharat Hussain extended his warmest wishes to the Muslim community celebrating Eid al-Adha and to non-Muslims, wishing them a joyful holiday. “I convey to all the Muslim Ummah a blessed Eid al-Adha, and to our non-Muslim brothers and sisters, a great holiday ahead. Stay healthy and safe, and let’s celebrate Eid in the simplest way possible to help those who need our support.”

In his concluding remarks, Moosa stressed the importance of solidarity and compassion, especially during festive times. “Eid al-Adha is a time for reflection and community. Let’s not only enjoy the celebrations but also remember and support those who are less fortunate. Together, we can make this Eid truly special for everyone.”

Syed Basharat Hussain’s message comes as a timely reminder of the power of community and the impact of collective action. His call to keep prices low is not just an economic appeal but a moral one, urging everyone to act with kindness and consideration during this important festive season. As Eid al-Adha approaches, his words inspire hope and a renewed commitment to communal harmony and support.
