Kashmir shutdowns after two days of normalcy

Waheed Yaseen

Srinagar: After witnessing normalcy for two days in running, life in Indian Kashmir was disrupted again in response to a call given by Syed Ali Shah led Hurriyat (G) asking people to observe ‘civil’ curfew.

Authorities, however, decided against imposing curfew in the valley.
“Curfew hasn’t been imposed in any of the areas in Kashmir as we feel situation is limping back to normalcy by the day,” a senior police officer told Agence India Press.

Geelani has called people to observe ‘civil’ curfew during the US president Barack Obama’s stay in India in order to impress Obama upon to discuss Kashmir issue with his Indian counterparts.

The hustle and bustle in all the major markets of the valley that was seen in last two days wasn’t there as all shops and business establishments remained closed.

While private and public traffic in most of the areas in the valley remained off the roads, schools and private offices remained closed.

However, some of the government employees marked their presence in their respective offices.
No major incident was reported in the day except for a protest staged by hundreds of Sikh community members in Hutmura village on Khanabal Pahalgam road, 50 Kms to the south of Srinagar, alleging Indian army of harassing them late last evening.

Kashmir has seen one of its high voltage summers of recent history with 111 civilian killings at the hands of police and paramilitary forces and countless curfews and shutdowns in addition to valley wide protests against ‘Indian Occupation’ of the state.
While Hurriyat (G) that spearheads ongoing ‘Quit Kashmir’ campaign has been announcing protest cum strike calendars ever since a 17 year old boy of Srinagar’s old city was killed by a police tear gas shell on June 11 this year, government has come down heavily on anti-India protesters by clamping curfews for the major part of ‘tumultuous’ period.
