Authorities disallow Jumat-ul-Wida prayers at Srinagar’s Jamia Masjid

Srinagar, April 14 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the authorities have disallowed “Jumat-ul-Wida” congregational prayers at the historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, today.

The Anjuman Auqaf of the Jamia Masjid in a statement in Srinagar said, “District magistrate and police officials visited the Jamia Masjid at 9.30am and asked the management to lock the gates of the Masjid as administration had decided that Jumat-ul-Wida prayers will not be allowed at the Masjid.”

The Anjuman has strongly resented the move of the authorities causing great distress to lakhs of Muslims who traditionally come from all parts of the valley to offer prayers on the last and greatly blessed Friday of Ramzan in the Jamia Masjid.
