The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Friday called for a complete shutdown in Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow against the unabated braid-cutting incidents.

Sources said that the JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik called for shutdown and appealed to the freedom-loving people to observe civil curfew tomorrow.

They said that the decision was taken following a meeting after Magrib (evening) prayers at the residence of Hurriyat (G) chairman in Hyderpora yesterday.

“In the meeting, the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir was discussed besides the braid cutting incidents and efforts to abrogate state subject laws,” they said.

The leadership has called the braid-cutting incidents as an “Indian ploy” to target women in Kashmir through “specially trained persons”.

They also appealed to the people not to thrash any suspects and “instead hand them over to Masjid committees”.
