Immediate, unconditional release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq demanded

Srinagar, April 04 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Anjuman Auqaf of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, has greeted the people of Kashmir on the arrival of Ramadan, the month of blessings and attainment of goodness and happiness.

The Anjuman Auqaf of Jamia Masjid in a statement issued in Srinagar reiterated its demand for the immediate and unconditional release of its Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who continues to be under house arrest since August 2019.

It said a large number of people, who specially visit the Jamia Masjid from the cities and towns, want to listen to and benefit from the sermons of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq during the holy month of Ramadan.

The Anjuman said that the Mirwaiz’s continued illegal detention has not only affected the field of da’wah and preaching but also the people are strongly feeling the absence of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir.

It strongly demanded the release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq so that he could perform his official duties of preaching from the historical central Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, as is a centuries-old tradition of his predecessors – the Mirwaizeen-e-Kashmir.
