Srinagar- Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar Friday expressed deep sorrow and anguish over continuous lockdown of Srinagar’s central mosque.

“J&K’s largest spiritual centre and place of worship – the historic Jama Masjid Srinagar remains closed and this has hurt the people’s sentiments as they are barred from fulfilling their religious obligations”, Anjuman Auqaf said in a statement.

Anjuman said it is the 23rd consecutive Friday when the pulpit and mihrabs of the Jama Masjid were kept silent and also the religious obligation like Friday prayers could not be performed.

Strongly condemning the deplorable behaviour of the authorities, the Anjuman said that under a well planned policy, continuously preventing the people from performing important religious duties like Friday prayers at the Jama Masjid is a serious violation of fundamental religious rights as well as interference in religion against which every section of the people are expressing anger and resentment.

Demanding release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq from what it described as “illegal and arbitrary” detention Anjuman lamented that the public outrage was falling on deaf ears.
