Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar expressed strong resentment over the decision by authorities to once again disallow Friday prayers at Jama Masjid Srinagar.

In a statement issued here, it has vehemently condemned the police action.

“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 have been officially opened for Friday prayers, but only Jama Masjid Srinagar continues to be selectively banned and restricted from holding Friday prayers, which is extremely unfortunate and incomprehensible.” Reads the statement.

It further said this behaviour of the rulers is tantamount to sheer interference in religion and hurting the religious sentiments and feelings of Muslims.

Adding that due to the continuous closure of the grand mosque, there is hurt and anger among the people from all walks of life including men, women and elderly people who want to come to the Jama Masjid to perform important duties such as Friday prayers. They see this attitude of the rulers as utterly offensive and vindictive, the Anjuman said.
