SRINAGAR—Hur­riyat Con­fer­ence (M) chair­man Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, who con­tin­ues to be un­der house ar­rest since Wed­nes­day, was not al­lowed to of­fer Friday pray­ers at his­toric Jamia Masjid.

Mir­waiz de­liv­ers the Friday ser­mons at the his­toric Grand mosque of Kash­mir. “Mir­waiz Sa­hab was stopped from dis­charg­ing his re­li­gious du­ties at his­toric Jamia Masjid,” a party spokesman said.

A joint pro­gramme for shut­down and sub­se­quent peace­ful protests af­ter Friday pray­ers across Jammu Kash­mir was given by both Hur­riyat fac­tions led by Mir­waiz and Syed Ali Gee­lani and JKLF led by Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik.

Gee­lani re­mains in con­tin­u­ous de­ten­tion while Ma­lik was ar­rested from his Srinagar of­fice on Wed­nes­day.—GK SRINAGAR—Po­lice
