Masarrat Aalam calls for march towards Jamia Masjid Srinagar

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the illegally detained Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Masarrat Aalam Butt, has strongly denounced the occupation authorities for disallowing Juma prayers at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar for the last one year, terming it the violation of religious rights of the Kashmiri people.

APHC Spokesman quoting Masarrat Aalam Butt, detained in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail, urged the Kashmiri masses to march towards the Jamia Masjid, tomorrow, to register protest against the authorities’ action.

He said the people of IIOJK, who have always resisted such acts, will march towards the Jamia Masjid Srinagar to offer Friday’s prayers there. He said the people will also lodge a forceful protest against Narendra Modi-led Indian fascist government’s latest assault on the demography of the territory by selling the Kashmiris’ land and natural resources to non-locals. He said that the Khateebs in the Juma addresses in their respective mosques will make people aware about India’s nefarious designs of changing the demography of IIOJK.

It is to mention here that the administration of IIOJK on Monday signed 39 MoUs worth Rs 18,300 crore with India’s real estate investors in the name of development of housing and commercial projects in the territory.

The APHC Chairman said the colonial move is aimed at grabbing the land of Kashmiri people and settling the Indian citizens in the territory. He appealed to the international bodies including the United Nations and Organization of Islamic Cooperation to stop India from altering the demographic status of IIOJK.
