‘Release Mirwaiz on Shabe-Barat keeping in view people’s religious sentiments’

Srinagar: Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar has expressed resentment over the fact that a holy and important event like Shab-e-Baraat is not being held at Jama Masjid for the last four years because the Anjuman head Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq continues to be under “illegal and arbitrary” house detention since 5 August 2019.

The Anjuman in a statement said there are strict restrictions on the peaceful activities of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir as he is barred from performing his religious responsibilities, which is condemnable.

Despite repeated appeals to the authorities, it looks unlikely that Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir will be allowed to deliver his sermon at Jama Masjid on the auspicious occasion of Shab-e-Baraat .

The Anjuman urged administration to unconditionally release Mirwaiz Umar Farooq by taking into consideration the religious sentiments and feelings of lakhs of people who have been longing to meet their beloved leader and thousands of devotees who come from nook and corner of the valley to Jama Masjid Srinagar on Fridays but have to return disappointed.

The Auqaf said that today is the 184th Jummah Mubarak, while Mirwaiz was not allowed to perform the important duty of Friday prayer, nor carry out his religious duties based on ‘Qaal Allah Wa Qaal Al Rasool (SAW).
