Government disallows Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid Srinagar

Authorities on Friday closed all gates of Jamia Masjid Srinagar to prevent people from gathering for weekly Friday prayers in view of a call for protests by the joint resistance leadership.

Sources said that all roads leading to the mosque in Nowhatta were sealed with rolls of concertina wires, while Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was placed under house detention last evening.

The resistance leadership has called for protests after Friday prayers today against the killing of a civilian Adil Farooq Magrey in firing by forces in Shopian on Tuesday.
