Anjuman Auqaf expresses resentment over continuous closure of Jama Masjid

Srinagar, Dec 24 (KNS): Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar has expressed resentment over continuous closure of historic Jama Masjid Srinagar for Friday prayers.

The Anjuman, in a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), said that they are unable to understand that on the one hand, all the places of worship, mosques, shrines, imambargahs and khanqahs in Jammu and Kashmir are open for Friday prayers, but only Jama Masjid Srinagar continues to be selectively banned and restricted.

“This behaviour of the authorities is tantamount to sheer interference in religion and hurting the religious sentiments and feelings of Muslims, which is unacceptable,” the statement reads.

It reads that due to the continuous closure of the grand mosque, there is hurt and anger among the people.

The Anjuman has also expressed resentment against the continuous incarceration of its head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq since August 05, 2019. (KNS)
