Srinagar, July 15: Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman and Head of Mutaheda Majlis-e- Ulema, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq strongly condemned the “assault and desecration” of Jamia Masjid Anantnag by government forces and beating of worshipers terming it ‘ultimate highhandedness”.

“Now the repression in Kashmir has started touching new heights and now even religious places aren’t spared,” Mirwaiz said in a statement.

Mirwaiz said entering the Masjid and resorting to “vandalism” amounts to direct desecration of the religious place and is worst form of “state terrorism”.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson of the amalgam has condemned the arrest of a “minor” son of senior Hurriyat leader Mukhtar Ahmed Waza.
