Amid a nocturnal curfew due to Covid-19 resurgence, the management of Jamia Majid in Srinagar has decided that there shall be no congregational Fajr and Isha prayers during Ramzan.
An Auqaf Jamia Masjid member said that the decision has been taken in wake of the government’s decision to impose a night curfew to prevent the Covid-19 virus from spreading further.
“It has been decided that only three prayers Zuhar, Asr and Maghrib will be offered at the Jamia Masjid while the religious place will remain closed for Fajr and Isha prayers including Taraweeh,” he said.
