A group of prominent Kashmiri women staged a protest in Lalchowk here at Srinagar on Tuesday against abrogation of article 370 and detention of political leaders.
The police personnel rounded the protestors into police vehicles and also tried to stop the protesting women from distributing a statement to the reporters covering the protest.
“We the women of Kashmir disapprove the unilateral decision taken by the government of India to revoke Article 370, 35A and downgrade and split the state of Jammu and Kashmir,” the statement said.
Demanding restoration of civil liberties and fundamental rights of the citizens, the women said they feel “betrayed, humiliated and violated as people”.
They also demanded immediate release of detainees and demilitarization of rural and urban areas. “We express our outrage against the national media for their false/misleading coverage of ground realities in Kashmir,” the statement issued by the women said.
