Amid restrictions, hundreds of people offered congregational Asar prayers on road in Central Kashmir's Budgam district on Wednesday. The prayers were led by senior Hurriyat leader and president Anjuman-e-Shari Shian Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi.
"The call for holding prayers was given by resistance leadership. Soon after the prayers ended, they staged sit-in while chanting pro-freedom slogans," said a party spokesman.
Speaking on the occasion, Aga Syed Hasan condemned the civilian killings and called for an end to the bloodshed.
