Srinagar: Awami Action Committee (AAC) has expressed strong resentment over disallowing prayers at the largest religious place of worship in JK – the historic Central Jamia Masjid Srinagar – on the blessed occasions of Shab-e-Qadr and Jumat-ul-Vida.

AAC said that on one hand, the government claims that the “normalcy” has returned in the valley, while on the other side, Muslims are prevented from performing their religious duties and obligations.
