Chairperson Huriyat Conference (m) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday said that no protests should be held outside the Jamia Masjid Srinagar without the announced program by the pro-freedom leadership.
According to KNS, Mirwaiz while addressing the Friday congregation in historic Jamia Masjid condemned the use of force inside the mosque last Friday. “Whatever government has said about the incident is a blatant lie. It is shameful that such lies are spoken sans any remorse. The truth is that Jamia Masjid since decades is the centre of peoples’ aspirations. Government is hell- bent to destroy its centrality and all tactics are being made to keep people away from offering Friday prayers inside the Jamia Masjid- we will not allow this to happen,” Mirwaiz said amid pro-freedom slogans.
He maintained there should be no chaotic protests held outside the masjid as same gives police a chance to unleash terror and undermine mosque’s sanctity. “People must participate in those programs which are announced by the leadership. Even I take part in those protest marches but no haphazard protests should be allowed to be held outside,” Mirwaiz said.
He added that the locals including the senior citizens must keep a watch over the movements going on outside the masjid after the congregational prayers of Friday conclude. “On one hand if we are blame the government but on the other hand we must hold ourselves accountable. The sanctity of Masjid is supreme.”
