The revered Hazratbal shrine in Srinagar was a sight to behold as worshipers, dressed in traditional attire, flocked to the premises from early morning, united in prayer and seeking blessings on Eid-ul-Fitr.

Similarly, Chrari Sharief in Budgam and other Eidgahs throughout Jammu and Kashmir echoed with the resounding prayers of the faithful, with people from diverse backgrounds coming together to celebrate the auspicious occasion.

The Eid prayers concluded on a peaceful note, further reinforcing the spirit of harmony and unity.

Moulana Rehmatullah Qasimi, the Patron of Darul Uloom Raheemiya Bandipora, led the Eid prayers there at 6:30 AM. Following the prayers, around 1000 people who had performed the ten-day Itikaf returned to their respective homes.

Meanwhile, the Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid has informed that after Fajar prayers police personnel have closed the gates of Jama Masjid Srinagar and informed the Auqaf that Eid Ul Fitr prayers scheduled for 9.30 AM are not being permitted at Jama Masjid today.

The Auqaf in a statement said that Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was again placed under house arrest early this morning. “This action represents a distressing infringement on our religious freedoms and rights of our Muslim community, marking the third instance within the week that faithful devotees have been unjustly denied access to their largest place of worship,” he said.

“Previous occurrences, including during the significant observances of Jumat-ul-Vida and Shab-e-Qadr, have already caused considerable distress and disappointment among faithful,” it said.
