Anjuman Auqaf, Mirwaiz Foundation launches annual Hijri calendar

SRINAGAR: The Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid in collaboration with Mirwaiz Foundation launched the annual Hijri calendar for the year 1445-46 AH (2024 CE) at the historic Central Jama Masjid, Srinagar.
“This year’s calendar is curated from a selection of some of the finest representations of Islamic architecture and design in Kashmir,” the Auqaf said in a statement, adding, “Kashmir has been at the centre of cross cultural movements across time best illustrated through its rich eclectic architectural tradition. The calendar showcases specimens depicting this cross cultural synthesis in khanaqahs, masajid, madrassas, tombs and eidgahs.”
It added, “The calendar is in continuation of the efforts of Mirwaiz Foundation for the wider dissemination and understanding of our religion and culture. We at the Mirwaiz Foundation urge people to come forward and help in the preservation of our rich heritage which is endangered and needs immediate attention.”
The Anjuman said the calendar is available at Jama Masjid Srinagar, and at Ali Mohammad and sons booksellers Lal Chowk for a nominal hadiya of Rs 75. The digital copy can be acquired @
