Shutdown being observed in Occupied Kashmir today

SRINAGAR: In Occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown, marked by curfew and other restrictions, is being observed today across the territory to commemorate the second martyrdom anniversary of Burhan Muzaffar Wani.

Call for the strike and a march towards Tral town has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

Its aim is to reaffirm the Kashmiris’ resolve to take the ongoing freedom movement to it its logical conclusion, through thick and thin.

The authorities have deployed thousands of troops and police personnel who are patrolling deserted streets across the territory including Srinagar.

All roads leading to Tral, the hometown of Burhan Wani, have been completely sealed to prevent the march.

The authorities have also put several Hurriyet leaders under house detention or in custody to stop them from leading the march.
