Srinagar, Dec 24: Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid Srinagar has expressed strong resentment over the continuous closure and disallowing of Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid, Jammu & Kashmir’s largest place of worship, for the 20th straight week.

In a statement issued here the Anjuman said: “The Anjuman and the Muslims of Kashmir are unable to understand that on the one hand, all the places of worship, Mosques, Shrines, Imambargahs and Khanqahs in Jammu and Kashmir are open for Friday prayers, but only Jamia Masjid Srinagar continues to be selectively banned and restricted from holding Friday prayers, which is extremely unfortunate.
