Srinagar- Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar has said that the authorities for the 26th consecutive Friday did not allow Muslims to perform mandatory Friday prayers at Jama Masjid Srinagar.
By doing so, the administration continues to hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims. Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar said in a statement.
The Anjuman also termed it extremely painful and distressing that its head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, continues to be under house arrest since August 5, 2019 incapacitating him from reaching out to people.
Anjuman once again asked the authorities to open Jama Masjid for Friday prayers and ensure the release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir.
