Speaking of the “Israeli model” for colonial occupation, India has barred Friday prayers in the Grand Mosque (Jamia Masjid) in Srinagar during the four months of the siege & lockdown just as Israel has long barred boys & men from praying in Al Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem. They are denied access by the apartheid walls or forced to pray in the streets. Actually, the forced closing down for Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid goes back months before the current siege, especially after the 2016 uprising against occupation. The Indian Army has also vandalized many other mosques. India’s plans to Hinduize & economically exploit Kashmir go back a long way.
