KASHMIR NEWS TRUST #KNT
On the occasion of Last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, thousands of men, women and young people performed Friday prayer at the historical Jama Masjid Srinagar by prostrating themselves before the Almighty Allah, doing Tauba-Wa-Istighfaar – repenting over their sins and seeking forgiveness from their Lord.
Anjuman said that the devotees were once again disappointed over the absence of their beloved leader Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq who is under house detention for the last nearly four years due to which the Mimbar and Mihraab of the grand mosque continue to remain silent.
On the occasion, a spokesperson of the Anjuman conveyed the Eid-ul-Fitr message of the detained Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir to the people in a huge public gathering and appealed to them to celebrate Eid with simplicity according to Islamic teachings. They were urged to remember the poor, needy, backward and disadvantaged people of society in the festivities.
The Anjuman expressed strong resentment against the continuous illegal and arbitrary detention of Mirwaiz –e-Kashmir and said the authorities should change their dictatorial attitude and release him before Eid
On the occasion, the people raised their voices for the immediate and unconditional release of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the Anjuman said that the Eid prayers are going to be offered after three years at Jama Masjid Srinagar inshallah and according to the program, the Eid prayer will be offered at 09:00 am.
The people were urged to come before time and show Islamic unity and discipline on the occasion.
