In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the authorities once again disallowed All Parties Hurriyat Conference senior leader, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, to offer the Juma prayers at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has been under continued illegal house detention since 5th August 2019 when Modi-led fascist Indian regime repealed the special status of IIOJK and imposed military siege.
Meanwhile, Anjuman Auqaf of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, in a statement in Srinagar expressed concern that its head and the top-most religious leader of Kashmir, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has been under continued house arrest due to which he is unable to perform his religious, social and political obligations.
The Anjuman said that the continued restrictions on Mirwaiz for the last over three years have not only affected his centuries-old responsibilities but also the sentiments and emotions of a large number of people from nook and corner of the valley who come to the historic central Jamia Masjid, Srinagar – the largest place of worship in Kashmir – to listen to the sermons of Mirwaiz, are being severely hurt.
Furthermore, the followers of Mirwaiz are deeply disappointed with his continued house detention and demand his immediate release, said the statement.—KMS
