Separatists protest against army presence in KashmirNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:57 am ICT by admin
Both factions of the hardline Hurriyat Conference as well as Kashmiri leaders and the Bar association had called for the shutdown, to garner international community’s attention towards the unresolved issue of Kashmir.
Hilal War, Chairman, Jammu and Kashmir Realistic Front (JKRF), demanded that the troops leave the valley.
“We are against the Indian army occupation here. Every nook and corner shows a negative response. We say, as soon as possible, they should leave us alone,” War said.
The residents say that they were frustrated by the violence in the region.
“The strike is to protest the presence of Indian army here,” said Haqnawaz. (ANI)
