"For the last three consecutive Fridays including Jummat-ul vida, Jamia Masjid Srinagar has been locked down and the entire area is put under strict curfew," Mirwaiz umer Farooq said.

"Such is the apathy and indifference of this anti Kashmir state towards the religious rights of the Muslims who are the in the majority, that a huge chunk of population almost each Friday is disallowed from offering obligatory Friday prayers. It has almost become a norm with the rulers to keep the central Jamia Masjid and other mosques locked on Fridays and bar people from praying there."
