Srinagar: Lalchowk Traders Association has decided to observe shutdown from 3 pm onwards on Saturday to protest against the attacks by rightwing extremists on Kashmiris in Jammu.
“All the shopkeepers in the city center will down their shutters to protest against the arson attacks in Jammu and harassment of Kashmiri students,” Din Muhammad, president of the association said.
Condemnations and concerns are pouring in from all political, social, religious and business classes after reports of attacks on Kashmiris in Jammu and other states.
The mobsters have wrecked havoc in Jammu and attacked residential quarters of Kashmiri employees in Gujjar Nagar and Janipur. Several vehicles belonging to muslims have been torched.
