Anjuman expresses grave concern over continuous closure of Jamia Masjid Srinagar for consecutive 29th Friday

Srinagar, Feb 18: Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar has expressed grave concern over continuous closure of historic Central Jama Masjid in Srinagar for the 29th consecutive week for obligatory Friday prayers. 

Anjuman, in a statement said that it is incomprehensible that while followers of all the religions across the world including Jammu and Kashmir are attending their respective religious places of worship and performing rituals why are prayers being disallowed at Jama Masjid.

It said that not only are the religious sentiments of Muslims constantly being hurt by this behavior of the authorities but also the message of humanity, love and harmony propagated through “Qaal Allah Wa Qaala Rasool (SAW)” from the pulpit and mihrab of the centuries-old mosque is being suspended.

Anjuman expressed hope that as the last ten days of the holy month of Rajab al-Murajab, in which Mer’aaj-un-Nabi, the date of Ascension of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is coming, not only the central mosque will be opened for Friday prayers but also the Anjuman Auqaf Chairman Mirwaiz  Umar Farooq, who continues to be under house arrest for the last two-and-half years is released.
