Kashmiri Pandit body condemns ban on Jumat-ul-Wida at Srinagar’s Jamia Masjid

London, April 14 (KMS): The Kashmir Peace Forum International (KPFI), UK, an organization of Kashmiri Pandits, has condemned the banning of Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

On Friday morning, Jamia Masjid’s Auqaf committee said the district administration of Srinagar has sealed the gates of the mosque on the occasion of Jumat-ul-Wida.

The Forum Chairman, Satish Mahaldar, in a statement condemned the restriction of Friday congregational prayers at the historical mosque and said the prohibition of prayers is highly unjustified.

It is unfortunate to ban Jumat-ul-Wida congregational prayers in the territory. “There cannot be a prohibition for any religious prayers by the district administration or police authorities,” the chairman maintained.
