Srinagar, September 21, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities have imposed curfew-like restrictions in Srinagar to prevent people from taking out Ashura processions. Restrictions have been imposed in the areas falling under the jurisdictions of Nowhatta, Khanyar, Safa Kadal, Maharaj Gunj, Kothibagh and Rainawari police stations to prevent the Ashura processions.
The authorities have also deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength in Srinagar and other towns of the occupied territory to stop people from carrying out Muharram processions and anti-India rallies after Juma prayers, today. It is to mention here that traditionally main procession of 10th Muharram would start from Aabi Guzar and end at Zadibal in Srinagar. However, the occupation authorities banned the procession in 1989.
