Mirwaiz Umar Farooq denied permission to offer Friday prayer
Hurriyet leaders are under house arrest these days after Indian forces have martyred several dozens unarmed and innocent Kashmiri citizens in an act of sheer barbarism. Internet and cellular services have also been blocked.
Umar Farooq wanted to offer Friday prayer in a mosque, but Indian forces intercepted him and denied permission to offer prayer in mosque.
Farooq appealed Indian police to do not fire on enraged youth.
This should be noted here that even after seven days of deadly clashes between Indian troops and protesters, life could not be restored in India-held Kashmir.
Fearing more protests after Friday prayers today, Indian security personnel have imposed curfew in parts of the troubled valley.
Meanwhile, the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government is observing a ‘Black Day’ in their side of Kashmir against the violation of human rights and killing of more than 40 civilians by the Indian security personnel on the other side.
On the call of senior Hurriyat Leaders and other local groups, a shutdown has been continuing in protest against the deaths of demonstrators in clashes with Indian security personnel.
