Srinagar: In a first, no Asr prayers were offered in the Jamia Masjid at Nowhatta on Friday. “There will be no Asr prayers in the masjid as the matting and the floor of the historic Masjid is all red with the stains of blood of the injured,” the official in charge of the masjid informed people who were assembling for the Asr prayers.
Blood was all over the place in the mosque as several protesters bled profusely after they were hit by pellets.
The Jamia Auqaf committee has decided to wash away the bloodstains on the concrete floor while the matting soaked in blood will be sent for washing, the official in charge informed.
