Partial shutdown in Bhaderwah over Kashmir situation

Bhaderwah (Jammu), Jun 2 (PTI) A partial shutdown was observed by the members of particular community in Bhaderwah tehsil of Doda district today over the Kashmir unrest.

Shops, business establishments and some private schools belonging to particular community remained closed. However, government-run schools, offices and banks functioned normally and traffic plied as usual.

The shutdown call was given by Anjuman-e-Isalamia Bhaderwah in protest against the Central and state governments for “not initiating” any talks on the Kashmir situation.

“People of Kashmir are going through the worst. But surprisingly some leaders of BJP and PDP both in Central and state governments are giving provocative statements by saying, only a couple of districts in Kashmir are involved in ongoing unrest. This is completely wrong and aimed at befooling people and the international community,” said Pervaiz Ahmed Sheikh, President, Anjuman-e-Islamia, Bhadarwah.

“We have given a call for peaceful bandh to lodge our protest as both the governments, instead of initiating the talks, are trying to curb the unrest,” he alleged.
