Srinagar: The J&K administration Friday blocked the residence of the National Conference President Farooq Abdullah and stopped him from offering prayers at Hazratbal shrine in Srinagar, the party said.
“J&K administration has blocked the residence of Party President Dr Farooq Abdullah and stopped him from offering prayers at Dargah Hazratbal,” the party said in a tweet.
“JKNC condemns this infringement of fundamental right to pray, especially on the auspicious occasion of Milad Un Nabi SAW,” the tweet added.
Former Chief Minister and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti condemned the happening and called it a gross violation of rights.
“Preventing Farooq sahab from offering prayers on Milad Un Nabi SAW at Hazratbal exposes GOI’s deep paranoia & their iron fist approach towards J&K. Its a gross violation of our rights & is highly condemnable,” she tweeted.
