Free to visit Jamia Masjid, Mirwaiz longs for prolonged 'house arrest'
12/7/2019 11:26:16 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 7: The government has played a brilliant move that has exposed the doublespeak of senior separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
Even as many are complaining that no congregational Friday prayers were being allowed at the historic Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta here since August 5, the fact of the matter is that "Mirwaiz is unwilling to come out of his villa."
Sources said around a fortnight ago, the government had sent message to Mirwaiz that why Jamia Masjid was not resuming the weekly congregational prayers as there were no restrictions from the side of the administration.
"He was asked reasons about delay in resumption of prayers at Jamia Masjid but he finally said he was not feeling well and thus would be unable to visit the place," said a senior official on the condition of anonymity.
Sources said Mirwaiz has been wishing that he is kept under house arrest for long lest he has to leave his cozy home.
Sources said the Mirwaiz has told his Auqaf people to make "every possible excuses" for not resuming the congregations prayers at the central mosque in the heart of old Srinagar.
Observers said given the fear of getting jailed outside Jammu and Kashmir for inciting people for protests, the separatist leaders have finally realized that Modi government would not tolerate any anti-national activity.
A senior official said the masterstroke played by Modi on Kashmir has exposed the doublespeak of politicians.
"Lack of strict action against separatists had emboldened them but now Modi Ji's leadership has cut them to a size where he (Mirwaiz ) is unwilling to come out of his home when actually there are no restrictions on his movement," said the official.
Despite repeated attempts the separatist leader was not available for comments
