Kashmir Inc. held a sit-in protest at the city-center Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Friday against the summoning of Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to New Delhi by National Investigation Agency (NIA) and crackdown on religious leaders.
The protesting traders were carrying placards with messages like “NIA summon to Mirwaiz not acceptable’, ‘victimisation and harassment intolerable’, ‘religious interference intolerable’, ‘Stop religious interference’.
The protesting traders said the Mirwaiz is an institution unique to Kashmiri’s cultural ethos and that the Muslims of Kashmir cutting across political and ideological divides have a deep emotional and religious association with the pulpit of Jamia Masjid.
They said that not only Muslims but even the Kashmiri Pandits and Sikhs hold the Mirwaiz in high esteem.
The sit in was attended by the representatives of various organisations which included KEA, KTMF, KCCI, KTMF(R), Beopar Mandal S R Gunj, and transport bodies.
