The Muttahida Majlise-e-Ulama (MMU), a coalition of religious scholars led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has urged the Jammu and Kashmir administration to rigorously enforce laws against public alcohol consumption.

This directive follows a viral video on social media showing tourists drinking alcohol while riding a shikara on Dal Lake. The MMU expressed deep concern over the incident and condemned the act, questioning the lapse in enforcement.

Emphasizing Kashmir's hospitality towards tourists, the MMU warned that un-Islamic and unethical behaviors would not be tolerated. The body also called on local businesses to avoid engaging in such practices for profit.
