SRINAGAR: The Hurriyat (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who continues to be under house arrest since September 12, has condemned the debarring of Muslims from offering Friday prayers at Central Jamia Masjid here and other Khankahas, shrines and Imambaras in Valley by clamping strict curfew, terming it interference in the religious affairs of people.

“The coming generations will never forgive the government of India and its gents in Jammu Kashmir for imprisoning people in their houses for such a long time and usurping their religious, political, social and other basic rights. Such inhuman and tyrannical steps by India in Jammu Kashmir will be recorded in the blackest chapters of history,” said Mirwaiz, according to Hurriyat statement.

Meanwhile, Mirwaiz has also denounced the seizure of local newspapers by the police and beating of journalists. Party senior leader Aga Syed Hassan Al-Musvi Al Sufvi was not also allowed to offer Friday prayers, statement added.-SANA
