The mosque management expressed strong resentment that the Wakf Board did not respond to its letter and failed to make necessary arrangements at the Eidgah for the upcoming Eid prayers, the religious body said.

“For over a year now under the pretext of upgrading Eidgah, Wakf board is not completing the repair works despite repeated requests and reminders,” it said.

The Anjuman said it has now decided to hold Eid Prayers at Jama Masjid at Nowhatta.

“As such it has been decided that the Eid prayers will be held at Jama Masjid Srinagar at 9:00 AM. Mirwaiz Kashmir Molvi Umar Farooq will deliver Eid sermon from 8:00 am,” it said.
