Islamabad, 30 April 2022 (TDI): Pakistan condemns the ban on “Shab-e-Qadr” and “Jumat ul Vida” congregations at Srinagar’s Jama Masjid on Friday.
The Indian occupation troops had upped their brutality against innocent Kashmiris throughout the holy month of Ramadan, according to a statement from the Foreign Office Spokesperson.

The Indian occupation forces had forbidden “Shab-e-Qadr” and “Jumat ul Vida” gatherings at Srinagar’s Jama Masjid. During the holy month of Ramadan, Indian occupation forces have upped their repression against innocent Kashmiris, according to the Foreign Office.
In this holy month of peace and mercy, Pakistan condemns these restrictions on Kashmiri Muslims’ ability to practice their faith and prevents them from congregating on significant religious occasions.
“Pakistan condemns in the strongest possible terms, these curbs on Kashmiri Muslims to practice their religion and restraining them from congregating on special religious occasions in this holy month of peace and mercy,” the spokesperson added.
“These curbs are the latest in a series of repressive measures taken by Indian occupation forces in IIOJK that have hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims.
From the desecration of the Holy Quran and burning down of mosques and shrines in IIOJK to restrictions on religious congregations and prayers.
Indian forces have also been engaged in unrelenting and willful attacks, harassment, and intrusive surveillance of Muslim worshippers.” “Indian soldiers’ behavior contradicts all standards of humanity and human dignity.”
The imposition of limits on religious liberties through illegal, arbitrary, and unjustifiable actions is yet another brazen assault on the human rights of Kashmiri Muslims by Indian occupation troops.
It’s also a reflection of their moral bankruptcy and the IIOJK’s endemic culture of impunity. “Pakistan strongly condemns these heinous acts and urges India to allow Kashmiri Muslims to attend their religious gatherings in peace and without hindrance to their intrinsic rights to freedom of religion and assembly,” he said.
