Srinagar: Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid has said thte Friday prayers at the central Jama Masjid Srinagar were disallowed for the 10th consecutive week in a row. 

In a statement, Anujamn Auqaf said that Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq also continues to remain under house. 

The Anjuman said that no reason is provided by the authorities for these restrictions and curbs. 

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, as per the statement, has condemned the repeated closure of the Jama Masjid on Fridays and his detention, including on Fridays. 

He said that all claims of so called normalcy fall flat by such anti people measures and he fails to understand why the Jama Masjid was being targeted again and again.

He said the the rulers should stop playing with the religious sentiments of the Muslims and let them offer prayers in their mosques without hindrance.

“People’s silence and endurance of brazen attacks on their religious rights should not be mistaken as their weakness to respond.”
