Srinagar: Government on Friday disallowed congregational Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar.
Reports said that the government imposed restrictions in parts of Downtown Srinagar and barred people from reaching to Jamia Masjid.
Taking to Twitter, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the “repression of New Delhi has pushed Kashmiri youth to armed resistance and a cycle of death and loss.”
“Even as Kashmir shuts to mourn scholar shaheed Mananwani , downtown under strict curfew prayers at Jamia Masjid again barred for the 15 th Friday this year while arbitrary arrests PSAs on activists , suspension of Kashmiri students from universities, repeated closure of colleges and universities to disallow dissent continues unabated. This repression coupled with intransigence of Govt of India pushes young boys to armed resistance and a cycle of death and loss,” Mirwaiz wrote on Twitter.
