Friday prayers disallowed 15 times this year of historic Jamia masjid srinagar
Srinagar, Dec 08: APHC strongly condemned the ruling regime for placing its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest once again and turning the majority of downtown into a military fortress and sealing the historic Jamia Masjid yet again ,disallowing Muslims for offerings Friday prayers for 15th time this year.
The spokesman said it has become the regular feature of the ruling dispensation in Kashmir to repeatedly bar Friday prayers at the grand masjid and to cage the Mirwaiz . This deplorable measure is being carried out even during the sacred month of Rabi-ul-Awal, and people are prevented from offering Friday congregational paryers and subsequent majalis e Milad commemorating the occasion of friday following Eid-e-Milad-un Nabi (SAW) which has deeply hurt their religious sentiments .
The spokesman also condemned the continuous house detention of veteran resistance leader Syed Ali Geelani. He also condemned the government for detaining senior APHC leader Mukhtar Ahmed Waza and lodging him in police station Sherbagh in Islamabad.
The spokesman said that while continuing with its repressive policies in Kashmir, Delhi and their local quislings are running the state through force and military might having let loose terror upon the people of Kashmir ,brazenly trampling all their rights and liberties including right to religious practices.
Meanwhile, massive protests were held across Kashmir against the US president Donald Trump’s decision of recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the illegal detention of Aphc leadership .APHC spokesman said that various leaders and activist of the amalgam including Mushtaq Ahmed Sofi, Advocate Yasir Dalal, Farooq Ahmed, Sahil Ahmed, Hayat and Muhammad Yosuf took out a peaceful protest at Soura against declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
