Profiling of mosques, their managements concerns HCBA » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, August 01 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the High Court Bar Association (HCBA) has expressed serious concern over the directions issued by Indian police asking for details of mosques and their managements in the territory.

The HCBA in a statement in Srinagar termed the move as interference in the religious affairs of the Muslims.

It said the directive is discriminatory as it singles out the Muslim community and subjects it to an unfair treatment, which is contrary to the concept of freedom of religion.

The HCBA also expressed concern over the passing of Tripple Talaq Bill by the Rajya Sabha (Upper House of the Indian Parliament) and making “triple-talaq” a criminal offence. It described the bill as anti-Muslim and also repugnant to the safeguards enshrined in the international and domestic laws. It said the move will hurt the religious feelings and sentiments of the Muslims of India as well as of the occupied territory, who have been opposing the passing of such a law vociferously.
