Braid-chopping: JRL calls for shutdown, civil curfew tomorrow
Srinagar: The joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik has called for shutdown and appealed to the freedom-loving people to observe civil curfew tomorrow against the braid chopping incidents in Kashmir.
Sources said that the decision was taken following a meeting after Magrib (evening) prayers at the residence of Hurriyat (G) chairman in Hyderpora yesterday.
“In the meeting, the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir was discussed besides the braid cutting incidents and efforts to abrogate state subject laws,” they said.
The leadership has called the braid-cutting incidents as an “Indian ploy” to target women in Kashmir through “specially trained persons”.
They also appealed to the people not to thrash any suspects and “instead hand them over to Masjid committees”.
Pertinently, JRL had called for protests today after the Friday prayers against the unabated braid cutting incidents in Kashmir.
