Jama Masjid continues to remain closed for Friday prayers: Anjuman Auqaf 

Srinagar, Feb 11 (KNS): Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid said that historic Jama Masjid in Srinagar remained closed for Friday prayers once again, which is unfortunate and condemnable. 

According to a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Anjuman said that once again the authorities did not allow Muslims to perform important duties such as Friday prayers at the historic Central Jama Masjid Srinagar. 

The statement reads that Jama Masjid continues to remain silent which is extremely unfortunate and condemnable. 

“By doing so, the administration continues to hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims which is reprehensible in every respect,” it said. 

Anjuman reiterated that the two-and-a-half years of ban on Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, due to which he is unable to perform his religious obligations as well as the duties, is unjustified. 

It said that it was also very surprising that despite peaceful protests and voices from all sections of the society across Jammu and Kashmir, the Jama Masjid was not allowed to open for Friday prayers nor is the release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir being carried out. (KNS)
