Srinagar: Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid Srinagar on Thursday announced that due to inclement weather and waterlogging at historic Eidgah Srinagar , Eid-ul-Fitr prayer will be held at 9:00 at Jama Masjid Srinagar, instead of Eidgah Srinagar.

In a statement, the Anjuman Auqaf urged Muslims to pay Sadaqah Fitr, which is fixed at Rs 65 per person, before the Eid prayer so that deserving people also join Eid festivities.

The Anjuman once again strongly demanded the release of its detained head Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq before Eid, reads the statement.
