In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the authorities once again disallowed people to hold Juma prayers at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, today.
Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar in a statement issued in Srinagar said that today morning the senior officials of the administration informed the Khateeb and Imam of the Jamia Masjid Maulana Ahmad Sayeed Naqshbandi that Friday prayers would not be allowed in the grand mosque.
In this regard, a formal notice was also been pasted on the gate of the Jamia Masjid by the ad-ministration.
The Anjuman in a statement lamented that de-spite the worshippers fully adhering to COVID-19 SOPs, the prayers at the largest place of worship in IIOJK were not being allowed for the last three Fridays.
This is extremely sad and painful for the people especially those coming for prayers at the Jamia Masjid Srinagar, it said.—KMS
