When Omar Abdullah Prayed

I was reading the online version of Greater-Kashmir when I saw this story:

Title: Omar prays for peace!!!!

There are so many lines which are worth pondering upon by people like me.. So let me start! I maybe wrong (naturally) and I (as usual) may cause a lot a emotions to flow.. Let me start my article..

Oh Wait! Let me APOLOGIZE in capital letters and red ink! I may hurt a lot of you, religiously, as well as politically (Not that Islam wants them to be different but I will you why they are, atleast in Kashmir.. Read on! Prepare to get Times-Of-Kashmired)

The chief minister, Omar Abdullah, today offered Jum’at-ul-Vida prayers
So nice of him, considering he is married to a Non-Muslim.. Case Closed..

Dargah Sharief, considered to be the epitome of spiritual blessings all over the valley.
I dont think all the spiritual blessings are thrown there! Now why is it considered the "Epitome", when we know that Allah (SWT) is closer to us than Dargah is to the University of Kashmir..

نَحۡنُ أَقۡرَبُ إِلَيۡهِ مِنۡ حَبۡلِ ٱلۡوَرِيدِ
(We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein 50-16).

or if I am just allowed to push my points a little further towards the cliff, I present the Ayah:

“And who is more astray than one who calls on (invokes) besides Allah, such as will not answer him till the Day of Resurrection, and who are (even) unaware of their calls (invocations) to them?” [al-Ahqaaf 46:5]

"You Alone do we worship. And You Alone do we ask for help."

3. The administration had made all arrangements for smooth arrival
Always so interesting to see the words "administration" and "all-arrangements" in the same line. Case Closed.

Omar prayed for peace and tranquility for all the people of Jammu and Kashmir
Ok! Fine! Maybe he did!! But its not gonna be answered anyway!! Bummer!!!
