In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K), people could not offer Eid prayers at big mosques, today, on Eid-ul-Azha due to continued military siege and restrictions imposed by the authorities.
The authorities restricted people from offering in historical Jamia Masjid, Dargah Hazratbal, Eidgah and other big mosques in the territory.
All the mosques and the shrines including Kashmir’s largest mosque, Jamia Masjid Srinagar, were closed.
Kashmiri Muslims were also unable to sacrifice bovines freely in the territory.
No such restrictions were witnessed in the valley in the past before August 5, 2019, when Modi regime revoked Kashmir’s special status.
