IIOJK in focus

Congregational prayers at Jamia Masjid on coming Friday: Anjuman Auqaf

Srinagar, October 13 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid Srinagar has said that the Auqaf has decided that in view of the occasion of the blessed birth of the holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the grand mosque will be opened for Friday prayers on 15 October, 2021 under strict observance of COVID-19 SOPS and guidelines.

Anjuman Auqaf in a statement in Srinagar informed that while all mosques, shrines, imambaras including Dargah Hazratbal have opened for prayers in view of the ongoing holy month of Rabi-ul-Awwal and diminishing graph of COVID-19 cases, the authorities have no justification to keep IIOJK’s largest place of worship -Jama Masjid Srinagar closed.

“We also hope the authorities will ensure that the detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the head of Anjuman Auqaf, who has been under illegal and arbitrary house arrest for the last 28 months, will also be ended so that he resumes his centuries-old duty of preaching,” the Anjuman said.
