In Pictures: Muslims in Kashmir observe Jumat-ul-Vida

On the last Friday of Ramzan, Kashmir Muslims gathered across several mosques and shrines in Kashmir to offer congregational Friday prayers.

The historic Jamia Masjid, however, remained locked as authorities disallowed prayers citing “law and order problems” as reason.

Processions were taken out from several localities in Kashmir in solidarity with Palestine and to mark the Youm-e-Quds. Banners reading “Free Palestine” were seen pasted on a mosque entrance in Srinagar.
