The meeting was attended by all members of the managing body of Jamia Masjid and some prominent traders of Jamia market.

Mirwaiz felicitated the people of Muslim Ummah in general and the people of Kashmir in particular stating that the fasting month provides great opportunity for the believers to repent their sins and to get closer to Allah seeking his blessings. Mirwaiz said people must make good use of every minute of the holy month.

The participants said that each year government used to convene important meetings and take members of the Auqaf on board ahead of the holy month regarding the arrangements, but this time around, nothing of that sort has happened.

The participants said that there is only propaganda that crores are being spent on the upkeep and beautification of the grand masjid by the government, but the situation on ground is the opposite.They said that instead of completing the work outside the Jamia Masjid undertaken by the authorities all works have been put on hold for reasons best known to the ruling dispensation.

They said that the issues of providing uninterrupted electricity and water supply to the grand masjid, too has been neglected by the ruling regime, which is a matter of concern.

The participants expressed serious concern over the illegal construction taking place outside the grand masjid, which is posing a serious threat to this iconic marvel as many tall buildings are coming up outside the Masjid, blocking the view.

Despite being repeatedly told the law enforcing agencies have adopted a criminal silence and are not acting against those who are raising illegal constructions outside the grand masjid.
