Reports said that it is after the “brutal Dogra regime” that the Jummah-tul-Vida prayers were not allowed in the Mosque.

Kashmir’s head priest Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that it is for the first time in the living memory of people that they are being barred from offering Juma-tul-vida prayers at Jamia Masjid.

Mirwaiz said that for the whole year Muslims of the Valley are waiting to offer prayers in Jamia Masjid on this most important last Friday of the holiest month of Ramadan to earn reward and seek forgiveness of their almighty. And even that right has been snatched from us by “oppressors”.

Mirwaiz said such anti-Muslim and “oppressive moves” now come as no surprise to the people of Kashmir, who each day are subject to various forms of human right violations and abuse which include infringement and upon their religious rights all of which is the hallmark of being under occupation.
