Mirwaiz Umar Farooq persistently barred from offering mandatory Friday prayers, delivering the sermon at Jama Masjid Srinagar : AAJ

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq
Srinagar, Mar 01 : Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid said that regretfully once again Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was prohibited from offering mandatory Friday prayers and delivering his sermons, actions which he has been persistently barred from by the authorities.

Anjuman said that yesterday authorities informed them that Mirwaiz would be allowed to come to Jamia for the Friday prayers and sermon , but today morning reneged on their promise and again put him under house detention .

Anjuman said that Mirwaiz is being unjustly prevented from carrying out his religious duties at the Jama Masjid, a place of significant spiritual importance to the Muslims . This restriction not only impedes on his fundamental rights but also on the rights of the community members who benefit from his teachings.Anjuman said that despite repeated appeals to authorities for his release from all quarters , it is falling on deaf ears .

Anjuman further said that we place our hopes in the judicial system to uphold justice, ensuring the restoration of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s religious and civil rights , as the matter is scheduled for hearing in court on March 6th.

Anjuman urges the court to recognize the gravity of this matter and allow Mirwaiz to visit the mosque on Fridays, ensuring that the government ceases its interference in religious practices. The freedom to practice religion freely without hindrance is a fundamental right, and we request the courts for its restoration to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.(CNI)
