Sharing is Caring

Srinagar, Jan 24 (ANI): A complete shutdown called by a

separatist group in Jammu and Kashmir, to protest

against blasphemous cartoons of Prophet Mohammad

published in a French magazine, paralysed normal life.

The call for protest was given by Chief of Jammu

Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Yaseen Malik, against

the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, which has

been known for lampooning Islam. In the rally called

‘The Prophet Prestige Rally’, protestors shouted

slogans against the magazine and demanded the

cartoonists behind drawing Prophet’s caricatures be

hanged. Roads and markets in Srinagar wore a deserted

look as shops across the valley remained shut and

vehicles stayed off the roads. A protestor, Faraz Ahmed

said the protest was against the disrespect shown by

Charlie Hebdo against Islam.
