The leaders in their separate statements in Srinagar castigated the occupation authorities for imposing restrictions in Srinagar to prevent Muharram processions, yesterday. They termed the action as sheer interference in the religious matters of the Muslims. The leaders said that the use of excessive force against the people participating in peaceful religious processions had exposed the fascist and biased mentality of the Indian authorities towards the Muslims. They said on one hand, the occupation authorities facilitate the two-month long Amarnath Yatra but on the other, they thrash the Muharram mourners for organizing peaceful religious processions.

The Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party and Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami in their statements termed the use of brute force against the Muharram mourners as the worst example of Indian state terrorism in the occupied territory. »
