Srinagar, June 29 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly condemned the continued house detention of its Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in Srinagar.

A spokesman of the forum in a statement issued in Srinagar said by barring Mirwaiz from carrying out religious, social and political activities to the extent of not allowing him to even offer Eid prayers reflects the level of vengefulness and frustration on the part of the occupation authorities.

He said it seems that by curbing the movement of the Mirwaiz, Indian authorities are following their plan to keep him away from the people of Kashmir as much as possible. »
