Special prayers held across valley for earthquake-hit Turkey, Syria

Srinagar, Feb 10 (KNS): Special prayers were organised in all the major mosques, shrines and imambarahs of the valley including the historic Central Jama Masjid Srinagar, for those who lost their lives in the devastating earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria earlier this week in which the death toll crossed over 21,000 and injuries to innumerable people.

At Jama Masjid Srinagar, the prayers were led by Imam Hai Moulana Ahmad Saeed Naqshbandi, who on behalf of the people of Kashmir, expressed sympathy and solidarity with the people of Turkiye and Syria.

He also expressed resentment over continuous detention of Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq and termed it extremely unfortunate and condemnable.

He said that due to the continued detention of Mirwaiz pulpit of the Central Jama Masjid has been constantly silent for all these years and he is also unable to discharge his religious duties towards the people.

He appealed to the authorities to end the prolonged detention of Mirwaiz and release him before Shah-e Me’raj-ul-Nabi (SAW). (KNS)
