IIOJK authorities disallow Juma prayers


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Juma prayers could not be held in most of the mosques and shrines due to the stringent curfew imposed by the authorities.

The authorities continued to impose curfew on the second consecutive day, today, to prevent people from holding funeral prayers in absentia for the veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Gilani, and conducting a march towards his Hyderpora residence to pay homage to him.

The congregational prayers were not allowed in major mosques including Jamia Masjid, Dargah Hazratbal in Srinagar and other mosques and shrines in the occupied territory.

The locals said that the roads around mosques were deserted and people attending to essential work were only allowed to pass by.—KMS
