Srinagar, October 19 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Thursday staged a protest in Srinagar against authorities’ failure to stop braid-cutting incidents.

Scores of workers of various pro-freedom organisations took part in the protest staged at Abi Guzar lane near the Lal Chowk.

The protesters were holding placards with messages urging an end to braid-cutting attacks. “Stop braid-chopping”, “Attacks on dignity of daughter not acceptable” and “Attacks on Kashmiri women and braid chopping is a ploy to intimidate Kashmiris” were some of messages written on placards.

The growing incidents have forced people to form local committees in every locality who remain awake throughout the night to ensure no braid-cutting incident occurs.

These incidents have already created fear psychosis across Kashmir with fear griping the womenfolk who find it very difficult to venture out of their homes.

Those who participated in today’s protest programme included Zamrooda Habib, Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Ghulam Qadir Baigh, Ghulam Rasool Dar Eidhi, Hakim Abdul Rashid, Farooq Ahmad Sodagar , Imtiyaz Hiader, Siraj ud din Mir, Muhammad Yasin Butt, Zahoor Ahmad Butt, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Advocate Yasir Ahmad Dalal, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Muhammad Yasin Ataiee, Nisar Hussain Rather, Muhammad Sideeq Shah, Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri, Ishfaq Ahmad Khan, Imtiyaz Ahmad Shah, Abdul Hamid Alaie, Muhammad Sideeq Hazari, Sahil Ahmad War, Farooq Ahmad Sheikh and Firdous Ahmad Shah.
