In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu & Kashmir Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU), today, demanded released of its patron, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq saying the pulpits of the largest religious and spiritual centre of Jammu and Kashmir – Jamia Masjid Srinagar – has fallen silent for the past 82 Fridays due to his continued house detention.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the MMU a meeting, which was held at Mirwaiz Manzil Rajouri Kadal , Srinagar, and attended by representatives of leading social and educational institutions and members from the trading fraternity expressed concern over the continued house arrest of Mirwaiz since August 2019.

The participants said that his detention is greatly hurting the sentiments of ordinary Muslims and religious scholars alike.

They criticized the recent statement of India’s Minister of State in the Indian Parliament that no one in IIOJK is under house arrest, while the fact is that Mirwaiz is detained at home and not allowed to move out.—INP
