Friday prayers not allowed today at Jamia Masjid

Authorities have disallowed congregational Friday prayers at the Jamia Masjid in downtown Srinagar in view of call for protests by the joint resistance leadership.

“Muezzin of Jama Masjid Molvi Muhammad Yasin was not allowed to offer Azan. All gates of Jama Masjid were locked by police and paramilitary forces,” said a spokesman of Jamia Auqaf Committee.

Earlier, chief cleric and Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was placed under house arrest.
