Srinagar, Oct 19: While calling for “peaceful” protests on Friday, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Thursday warned of a peoples’ movement against the growing incidents of braid-chopping in Kashmir valley.
In a statement, issued today, the JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik said the “attacks on our mothers, sisters and daughters” were not acceptable. “…and if these attacks do not stop immediately, we will have no choice but to launch a peoples’ protest against it.”
Calling for peaceful protests tomorrow after Friday prayers against these continuing attacks on Kashmiri women, JRL said that growing attacks on women and ugly acts of braid chopping are a “direct attack on our dignity and no Kashmiri will tolerate these attacks anymore.”
They said that Kashmiri mothers, sisters and daughters are under attack from some hidden enemy.
“We as a nation are living in an unrelenting horror and worry but so-called rulers, their police and other agencies remain absolutely naïve about it. So-called rulers are busy riding scooters and arranging music concerts and their forces and agencies are calling this menace as mere frenzy,” they said, in the statement.
