Farooq Abdullah Prevented From Leaving House To Offer Prayers: National Conference

Srinagar: Former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah has been prevented from offering prayers at Srinagar’s Hazratbal mosque, on the occasion of the Prophet Muhammad’s birth celebrations, his party said, Hindustan Times (HT) reported.

A spokesperson for Abdullah’s National Conference (NC) was quoted as saying by HT that the administration has blocked the exit to the latter’s residence to stop him from going to Hazratbal. “NC condemns this infringement of fundamental right to pray, especially on the auspicious occasion of Milad Un Nabi [the prophet’s birthday],” the spokesperson said.


People’s Democratic Party leader Mehbooba Mufti said preventing Abdullah from offering prayers exposes the government of India’s deep paranoia and iron-fisted approach towards Jammu & Kashmir, HT reported.

“It is a gross violation of our rights & is highly condemnable,” she tweeted.
