Srinagar, October 06 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the puppet authorities once again sealed the Srinagar’s Jamia Masjid, today, disallowing the faithful to offer Juma prayers inside the historic mosque.

Early in the day, the authorities placed Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house detention at his Nigeen residence preventing him from moving out. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq delivers weekly sermon at Jamia Masjid on every Friday.

The action was taken to prevent people from converging at the mosque and stage demonstration against the increasing braid-chopping incidents across the territory. Call for the demonstrations was given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

The puppet authorities also imposed restrictions in Srinagar and suspended mobile, internet and train services to prevent the demonstrations.

It is to mention here that during the past three weeks, occupied Kashmir has witnessed more than 50 incidents of braid-cutting. In the new method of state terrorism, the agents of Indian security agencies barge into the houses, use chemicals to make women unconscious and then cut their braids. The residents say that Indian forces’ personnel are behind the heinous crimes aimed at creating fear-psychosis among the masses particularly womenfolk.
