While the jihad rages hot in Gaza, it isn’t as if the jihadis have forgotten other fronts. Selling liquor: haram. Murdering those who sell liquor: pleasing to Allah. Sharia Alert from Kashmir: “One killed in Srinagar liquor shop firing,” from the Indo Asian News Service, November 15 (thanks to Lookmann):
Srinagar, Nov 15 (IANS) One person was killed and four others were injured when unidentified militants Thursday fired at the salesmen of a liquor shop in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir Police said.
A police officer told IANS: “Unidentified militants fired at the salesmen of a liquor shop in Boulevard Road area of the city this evening.”
“Five people were injured in the firing. One of the injured, identified as Mushtaq Ahmad of Aluchibagh locality of Srinagar city, has succumbed to injuries while four others injured are being treated in the hospital,” he said….
Following diktats of some separatist groups in the early 1990s all the wine shops, cinema halls and beauty parlours were closed in the valley.
As normalcy gradually returns to Kashmir, some wine shops have reopened in the city, along with some beauty parlours.
But, the owners of cinema halls in the city have been converting their establishments into hospitals and shopping malls instead of restarting their movie theatres.
