National Conference General Secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar on Friday castigated PDP BJP government for barring Friday prayers in the historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar for four consecutive weeks.
In a statement issued from party headquarters, the NC General Secretary said, “Stopping people from praying at Jamia Masjid has been the only ‘achievement’ of this government so far. Last year they broke all records by putting the historic masjid under continuous lockdown for 40 Fridays consecutively. Unfortunately the same practice is still going on.”
NC general Secretary said that the restrictions being imposed in downtown with each passing day and barring people from offering Friday prayers is a glaring example of the failures of this government. “Needless to say such actions create hostility and restlessness among the people and will inevitably lead to a situation where people of Shahr e Khaas would feel cornered and targeted,” he said.
