Srinagar: Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid said that authorities, once again for the 26th consecutive Friday, did not allow Muslims to perform mandatory prayers at Jamia Masjid Srinagar, the largest place of worship in Kashmir and the great centre of da’wah and preaching.

By doing so, the administration continues to hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims, the Anjuman Auqaf said in a statement.

The Auqaf also termed it extremely painful and distressing that its head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, continues to be under house arrest since August 5, 2019, incapacitating him from reaching out to people.

Anjuman once again asked the authorities to open Jamia Masjid for Friday prayers and ensure the release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir.
