Mirwaiz Farooq misses Friday prayers, sermon again


Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid Srinagar criticised the federal government as Mirwaiz Umar Farooq ignored Friday’s prayer and sermon on the Jamia Masjid in Srinagar again.

Farooq’s standing as an individual beneath space arrest or loose has grow to be a bone of rivalry for either side. While LG Manoj Sinha stated Farooq was once loose and no longer detained, the Anjuman in a remark on Friday stated that like the former a number of Fridays, further police and different paramilitary forces deployed out of doors the Nigeen place of abode of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq didn’t permit him to depart.

“Since August 5, 2019, Mirwaiz has not been allowed to deliver any Friday sermon at Jamia Masjid due to his continuous arbitrary and illegal detention; and a large number of Muslims from across the valley who come to the Jama Masjid Srinagar to offer Friday prayers and benefit from Mirwaiz’s sermons and guidance have been deprived of it due to his continued house arrest,” the remark stated.
