SRINAGAR: Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid, the management body of the Jama Masjid in Srinagar, has expressed strong opposition to the government’s decision to ban Jumma tul Wida prayers at the mosque. The authorities had asked the management to lock the gates of the mosque on the morning of the last Friday of Ramadan, citing the decision to ban the prayers.

This move has caused great distress to the Muslim community, who traditionally gather from all parts of the valley to offer prayers on this greatly blessed day at the Jamia Masjid, where offering prayers on the last Friday of Ramadan has great significance.

The Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid has called on the government to reverse its decision and allow the Muslim community to practice their faith without interference.
