Friday prayers disallowed at Jamia Masjid for 2nd straight week

Srinagar, Mar 08 : For the second consecutive week, authorities disallowed the Friday congregational prayers here at historic Jamia Masjid in Old City area of Nowhatta.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Amid restrictions in Srinagar parts, all the four gates of Jamia Masjid were locked by the authorities today, eyewitnesses said.

The head cleric of Jamia Masjid and Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was also placed under house detention and as was barred from leading the Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid.

“For the 2nd consecutive week mandatory Friday Prayers barred at #JamaMasjid Srinagar by the ruling regime.

Restrictions Imposed in #ShareKhaas, People caged in homes, leadership either under #HouseArrest or jailed under PSA,” Mirwaiz tweeted. (KNS)
