No prayers at Jamia Masjid
Imam-e-Hai condemns siege
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, July 19: Amid strict curfew, no prayers were offered at the historic Jamia Masjid on Friday as the place remained out of bounds for the people while Kashmir’s head priest Mirwaiz Dr Umar Farooq was kept under house arrest.
“No prayers were offered at this historic Masjid because of the strict curfew in the area,” the Imam-e-Hai, Syed Ahmed Syed Naqshbandi complained.
Condemning the action, Imam-e-Hai said it was “interference in the religious matters of the people.”
He also condemned the “massacre of Muslims” in Gool area of Jammu province. “In this hour of crisis when our victimized brethren needed our support, curfew has been imposed,” he said.
The Imam-e-Hai also condemned the restrictions on Mirwaiz Dr Umar Farooq.
