In Occupied Kashmir, the pro-India puppet administration restricted fundamental rights such as religious freedom and prevented Eid-ul-Fitr prayers from being offered at the historic Jama Masjid in Srinagar.
According to Kashmir Media Service, after the announcement of Eid on May 3 by the Central Route Hilal Committee of Pakistan, the decision to celebrate Eid with their Pakistani brothers was announced from every major mosque in occupied Kashmir.
However, due to strict restrictions imposed by the pro-Modi puppet administration in Occupied Kashmir, traditional large Eid prayer gatherings could not be held in the Eid venues of cities and towns. Eid prayers were also not allowed in the historic Jama Masjid Srinagar.
Occupying Indian Army allowed Eid prayers to be offered in various small mosques in which Kashmiris participated in large numbers.
After the prayers, the zealous Kashmiri people chanted slogans against the cruel and inhumane measures of the Indian Army and demanded the opening of the historic Jama Masjid in Srinagar.
Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has sharply criticized the Modi government, saying that the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir have been deeply saddened by the denial of Eid prayers in our holy mosque, Jama Masjid Srinagar. Similarly, there is concern over the long detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
