Mirwaiz to visit Chrar-e-Sharief today
Srinagar, Oct 14: The Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is scheduled to deliver a sermon on Friday at Chrar-e-Sharief shrine in central Kashmir’s Budgam district.
Mirwaiz, according to Hurriyat spokesman, was again placed under house arrest this morning to foil his proposed programme of paying his visit to Jinab Sahab Soura and other adjoining areas to express his solidarity with the people of area who were severely beaten and subjected to tremendous hardships during the present unrest. “Besides, Mirwaiz was scheduled to offer Asar prayers at Jinab Sahab Soura and visit the residence of Moulvi Muhammad Ayub whose nephew Abdul Qayoom Bhat, student, was tortured to death by the forces,” the spokesman added.
“Barring yesterday, Mirwaiz has been under house arrest continuously since second day of Eid. The government has been placing him under house arrest to put curbs on his religious, social and political activities which is highly condemnable. In fact, the government and other agencies are scared of his popularity,” he added.
