Mirwaiz still under detention, not allowed Friday prayers, says Hurriyat

All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has expressed strong resentment that after announcing the release of it’s chairman and Mirwaiz e Kashmir Molvi Umar Farooq from twenty month long house detention since August 2019, “Government authorities went back on their decision”.

APHC said that late last night police officials visited the Mirwaiz’s residence to convey to him that he continues to be under house arrest, and will not be allowed to go to Jama Masjid for Friday prayers and Majlis waz o tableeg today.

“And since early morning additional forces have been deployed outside his house and in the area converting it into a garrison. APHC strongly condemns this authoritarian flip flop of the Government,” a statement said.
