Anjuman Auqaf Aghast Over Continued Restrictions On Jama Masjid, Mirwaiz

SRINAGAR: Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar has strongly reacted to the imposition of restrictions on the largest place of worship and spiritual centre of Jammu and Kashmir, Jama Masjid Srinagar for the 18th consecutive Friday.

The Anjuman in a statement said: “Today, once again in the morning, the authorities and the police bared the Auqaf Employees from opening up the gates of the Moqsue  and thus preventing the locals and the people having come from various parts of the Valley to perform their Friday prayers at their beloved mosque.”

“Expressing concern over the policies pursued by the authorities towards the Central Jama Masjid,” the Anjuman said that all records of forcible closure of the grand mosque have been broken.

“The people are being deprived of all the rights including religious rights by force which is a cause of great uneasiness and anxiety for the Muslims of Kashmir,” it said.

In the statement, the Anjuman also expressed strong resentment against the continuous detention of its head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been under house arrest since August 5, 2019, and said the topmost religious leader of Kashmir should be released so that he resume his official responsibilities and activities.
