Hyderabad: To express solidarity with the people of Gaza and protest against Israel’s action in Palestine, ‘Qunoot-e-Nazila’ has been organised at the Jamia Masjid, Darulshifa, alongside the Friday prayers on October 20.
The special prayers will be followed by the Friday sermon by Maulana Jafar Pasha.
Qunoot-e-Nazila is being offered across the city in the aftermath of the Israel-Hamas-Hezbollah conflict that started this month alongside several silent protests and flash protests.
A group of women on Thursday, October 19, organised ‘Qunoot-e-Nazila’ prayers at the Eidgah Hazrath Ujaleshah in Saidabad in the city.
