SRINAGAR: Clashes between police and stone-pelting youths occurred in the south Kashmir town of Anantnag and at Eidgah and Hyderpora areas of Srinagar.
As a precaution, authorities on Wednesday placed separatist leaders including Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik under house arrest in Srinagar.
Geelani had called for peaceful protests after the Eid prayers.Kashmiri muslim protesters clash with paramilitary soldiers during protest in Old City after Eid al-Fitr prayers in Srinagar on July 6, 2016.
The Images are disturbing because even on the occasion of Eid, instead of celebrating, a section of people in the valley are indulging in such activities. As Ramzan is a month of good deeds, such acts seem ironical to what Islam and Muslim community stands for.
