In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, was today again disallowed to offer Friday prayers and discharge his religious duties.
Anjuman Auqaf of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, in a statement issued in Srinagar strongly resented the continued illegal house detention of its President, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
It demanded that restrictions on the Mirwaiz should be removed and he should be allowed to resume his religious and social activities so that he can fulfill the duty of guiding the Kashmiri people and reforming the society like his predecessors – the Mirwaizeen – had been doing for centuries.
The Anjuman said voices are being raised at all levels for the release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq but the authorities are unmoved.
For the past more than three years now the mimbar-o-mirab of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, is being rendered silent and the faithful, who come from nook and corner of the valley, return disappointed due to the absence of the Mirwaiz which is extremely painful for them.—KMS
