Hurriyat (M) denounces imposition of curfew in Srinagar, barring Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid

Srinagar

Hurriyat (M) Conference on Friday denounced the imposition of curfew in Srinagar, barring Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid and caging it’s chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on the occasion of Ashura.

The spokesman strongly condemned the police action on the mourners taking out a religious procession on the eve of Ashura, terming the arrest and detention of scores of mourners as totally authoritarian and against all the principles of humanity.

The spokesman said it is for the 14th Friday this year so far when authorities disallowed the congregational Friday prayers at the grand masjid. He said that sealing Jamia Masjid time and again reflects the dictatorial approach of the rulers and least respect for religious sentiments of people.
