Friday passes off peacefully
Kishtwar, Nov 2: Though Friday passed off peacefully in this mountainous district following unrest over recent incident of blasphemous contents over a social networking website, the religious heads of a particular community here have given a week’s time to the district administration to book the accused persons under Public Safety Act.
Addressing Friday congregations in almost all the local Masjids today, these religious heads denounced the communal politics being played by some vested interest and appreciated the role played by the members of the other community during the protest demonstrations.
The mountainous district was rocked with series of protest demonstrations, this week, over the alleged uploading of some objectionable contents on a social networking website by some local youth.
Addressing the main gathering at Jamia Masjid Kishtwar, Imama Molvi Farooq Ahmed said that during a meeting with the district administration it has been made clear that the local residents have only suspended their agitation for a week to enable the officials to book the culprits under PSA.
“In case our demands are not conceded we will start the agitation again”, he threathened and also condemned the arrests of JKLF members, who were on way to Kishtwar.
At Majis Asraria, Molana Hafia Manzoor Ahmed said that the local residents will continue to fight unless the district administration disbands the Village Defence Committees, established in past.
