"The Mirwaiz, along with his supporters visited the park where he is scheduled to hold a gathering tomorrow to celebrate 50 years of AAC, a religious organisation founded by his father," said Shahidul Isalm, media advisor to the Mirwaiz.
"Mirwaiz wanted to see the venue and check preparations for the rally to make it a success," Islam said.
