Srinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday accused government of India of disrespecting the sentiments of majority of people of Jammu and Kashmir by preventing people from offering prayers at mosques and shrines.
Mehbooba was reacting to the continuous closure of a few mosques and shrines in Srinagar city, including Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta here, for the past few weeks in the wake of a spike in COVID-19 cases.
“Preventing people from offering prayers & obeisance at mosques & shrines in Kashmir shows GOIs disrespect for sentiments of the majority community. Especially at a time when parks & public spaces are open & countless crowded govt functions held through the day. Reeks of bias (sic),” the PDP president wrote on Twitter. (With inputs from agencies)
