APHC reacts to blasphemy, ban on processions

Protest strike against blasphemous cartoons in Kashmir

In occupied Kashmir, crippling protest strike, marked by protest demonstrations, was observed today against blasphemous cartoons, published by some European newspapers. Call for the strike was given by the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association, which was supported by various other liberation organizations. 

All shops, bazars, business establishments, educational institutions and courts remained closed and transport was off the roads. Forceful demonstrations were also held against this blasphemy, in various localities of Srinagar, Sopore and Kupwara, besides other places. 

The APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, talking telephonically to Kashmir Media Service from Jammu, this afternoon, sharply reacted against publication of blasphemous cartoons, as well as, imposition of ban on Muharram processions by the puppet regime. He also said that a delegation of students called on him today and expressed their appreciation of the proposals of demilitarization and self-governance in Kashmir and its forceful projection by APHC

In Kishtwar, a frustrated Indian soldier committed suicide with his own service rifle. A 14 year-old boy was killed in a firing incident in Mahore. Two soldiers, including a Major, were injured in an attack at Marwah in Doda.
