Srinagar: Anjuman-e-Auqaf Jamia strongly refuted the news item in some local newspaper that their members were present in a meeting regarding ‘truce plan’ with the police officials, and said that the story is completely baseless, and has no truth to it.
Certain trade-bodies from Shahr-e-Khas had met with police officials with their own concerns. In this meeting, no representative of Auqaf was present, the statement said.
“We would like to bring to the notice of general public, that volunteers at Jamia Masjid conduct voluntary services of their own free will. They volunteer to ensure smooth and peaceful conduct of prayers at the Jamia Masjid. This kind of volunteerism especially during Ramzan and other months at the Grand Mosque is a tradition for a long time,” Auqaf said.
“As far as any meeting with Jammu Kashmir police or with any authorities is considered, there has been no meeting or contact. We again reiterate that the story is completely baseless,” they said.
“We request the media fraternity to seek confirmations regarding any news items related with the Anjuman-e-Auqaf Jamia Masjid,” they added.
