Masrat thanks people for making protest calendar a success
‘Rename Sunday Market As Friday Market’
NO STRIKE TODAY
Srinagar, Aug 31: The General Secretary of Hurriyat Conference (G) Masarat Alam on Tuesday expressed gratitude to people for making conglomerate’s protest calendar a success.
In a statement Alam urged people to observe September 1, Wednesday as women’s protection day. “People should chalk out strategies at the local level to protect women. We appeal the women to observe Islamic dress code and stage a sit in on roads. The males should form a human chain around them. The biggest congregation of women will be held at Aali Masjid today. However, on the occasion of death anniversary Hazrat Ali (RA), the shops will open and transport will ply normally,” he said.
Alam said there would be complete shutdown on September 2, Thursday to express solidarity with Kashmiris languishing in various jails. “People should visit the houses of the detainees and express sympathy with their families and see if they require any legal or financial aid. If possible the help should be extended at the local level otherwise the families should be asked to contact the Hurriyat (G) office. On this day, people should stage protests after prayers for 5-minutes,” he added.
Alam said September 3, Friday would be observed a Kashmir Day. “On this day, people should organise seminars, conferences in the Valley, Pakistan and Pakistan administered Kashmir and other places. A conference will be organized by Syed Ali Shah Geelani and people should participate in it,” he said.
Alam appealed the traders of Sunday Market to undertake their business activities on Friday from now onwards. “Sunday market should be named as Friday market,” he said.
Maintaining that youth have been playing a pivotal role in the ongoing agitation, Alam said they should continue to voice their views on Kashmir through social networking websites including Face book and debates on TV channels.
Alam asked the protesters to maintain discipline while staging protests. He strongly condemned the killing of 11-year old boy at Islamabad and injuries to 5 youth in Maisuma in police firing.
