Anjuman terms continuous closure of Jamia Masjid as regrettable

 Srinagar, Feb 25 (KNS): Anjuman Auqaf has termed continuous closure of Jamia Masjid Srinagar for Friday prayers as extremely regrettable and reprehensible. 

In a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Anjuman said that these are the last ten days of the holy month of Mehraj-Ul-Alam, the Ascension of the Prophet (SAW) and still the authorities did not allow Friday prayers at the largest place of worship.
It said that on the one hand such acts constantly hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims and on the other hand this attitude amounts to sheer interference in the religious affairs, against which the reaction and anger of the people is increasing day by day.
It also appealed to the influential religious organisations, Ulemas, Mashaikhs and Imams to raise their voice against the biased attitude of the authorities towards Jama Masjid.
It termed the continuous closure of Jama Masjid and keeping the Anjuman head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest for more than two and a half years as illegal and immoral. 
It also expressed hope that the Mirwaiz would be released on the occasion of Mehraj-Ul-Alam so that he can directly convey the universal message of the philosophy of Me’raj-un-Nabi (SAW) through his sermon in the centuries-old-traditional style of the Mirwaizeen to the people of Kashmir. (KNS)
