Amid the strict restrictions in Shopian, Kulgam and Pulwama districts of south Kashmir, no one was allowed to offer prayers on Friday, as per locals. Not even Moeuzzins were allowed to call people for prayers.
“Heavy contingent of forces deployed in the area didn’t allow people to come out of their homes for prayers,” informed a local, who lives just a mile away from a local Masjid in Shopian town.
Meanwhile, Mumtaz Khan, SP Shopian told Kashmir Life that curfew is still in force in three districts. “Though, the situation is under control, but for the precautionary measures civilian movement has been restricted,” he said.
The three districts of south Kashmir continue to remain under curfew since Wednesday afternoon after a youth Rafi Ahmad Rather was allegedly killed by CRPF in Gagran, Shopian.
