Srinagar, February 21 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Indian police have registered an FIR against some lawyers for participating in a protest on the anniversary of Kashmiri liberation leader, Muhammad Afzal Guru, on February 9.

The open FIR has been registered at Srinagar’s Batamaloo police station on the grounds that “some lawyers and their agents” pasted posters with pictures of Muhammad Afzal Guru, Muhammad Maqbool Butt, Bhagat Singh, Sukh Dev and Rajguru in the premises of district court in Srinagar.

The posters described Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Butt as heroes of Kashmir while Bhagat Singh, Sukh Dev and Rajguru were called ‘heroes’ of Hindustan.

The FIR further stated that these lawyers and their agents had pasted posters of Muhammad Maqbool Butt, Muhammad Afzal Guru and others to create a wedge between occupied Kashmir and India.

Meanwhile, some lawyers who participated in the demonstration told media that there was nothing wrong in holding a peaceful protest.

“We have every right to raise our voices in a peaceful manner. It is the state tactics to suppress genuine voices, the more they will do it, the more it will be resisted,” the lawyers said.
