Srinagar, November 04 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Anjuman Auqaf of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, has strongly denounced the continued house detention of its chief Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
The Mirwaiz has been under continued house arrest since August 05, 2019 when Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government repealed the special status of IIOJK.
The Anjuman Auqaf in a statement in Srinagar said the Mirwaiz has been barred from offering 162 consecutive Juma prayer, which is an important religious duty. “In these more than three years, he has not been allowed to fulfill his religious duties and responsibilities. This is the worst example of injustice and dictatorship,” the statement said.
The Anjuman Auqaf said it is a sad chapter in the recent history of Kashmir that the centuries-old pulpit of the historic mosque has been silent for the past three and a half years, due to which the religious sentiments of the people of Kashmir are deeply hurt and their anxiety is increasing with each passing day.
