SRINAGAR: Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat Conference has strongly condemned the imposition of strict restrictions in Downtown Srinagar and preventing people from offering obligatory Friday congregational prayers at Jamia Masjid Srinagar. The amalgam also condemned the continuous house detention of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and barring him from carrying out social, religious and political obligations.
In a statement issued here, a spokesperson of the amalgam said that Kashmir is witnessing “an ultimate form of repression” as entire south Kashmir has been converted into a military fortress. He said the military might of New Delhi is on a full display across Kashmir as the “dance of death” has become a regular feature for government forces.
