It’s 7th week I am barred from offering Friday prayers: Mirwaiz Farooq

MEWAR, India: Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said it had been seventh consecutive week since he had been barred from offering Friday prayers.

This should be noted that it has been around 70 years now, since India has been carrying out barbarism over innocent and unarmed Kashmiris. Recently, India started using pellet guns against Kashmiri citizens leaving hundreds of them blinded.

To suppress recent spree of protests that triggered after freedom fighter Burhan Wani’s death, several Kashmiri leaders were arrested or put under house arrest.

“Now it’s 7th consecutive week that I have been barred from offering Friday prayers,” said Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a tweet.

He also  expressed grave concern over aggravating situation in India for Kashmiri students and condemned attacks on them.

He said, “Treatment meted out to Kashmiri students across India is a matter of grave concern. In Mewar students are beaten and harassed. This is third such attack on them.”

Kashmiri students staged protests on Friday against assaulting and harassing them across India.

The students go to Indian cities for higher education. They said they should not be treated as terrorists. The Kashmiri citizens also demanded justice from the authorities.

A group of local residents thrashed six Kashmiri students studying at Mewar University in Rajasthan’s Chhittorgarh district, local Indian media reported on Friday.

“The incident happened on the evening of 19 April when the students were in the market to purchase household items. Four-five unidentified persons asked the students about their names and permanent address and thrashed them,” SHO Gangrar Dinesh Kumar told PTI.

Tension prevailed in Chittorgarh after a group of locals thrashed some Kashmiri students of Mewar University.
