Srinagar: Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, has flayed the authorities of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir for keeping its chief, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, under continued house detention for the last almost four years.
The Anjuman in a statement said that the Mirwaiz was barred from offering Juma prayers for the 204th consecutive Friday, today. It said, the unrelenting detention arrest of the Mirwaiz is a serious concern for Anjuman Auqaf as well as the people. Public anger against this action of the authorities is increasing with each passing day, it said.
The Anjuman urged the authorities to ensure the unconditional release of the Mirwaiz so that he can fulfill his religious obligations in the holy month of Muharram.
