Barring north Kashmir’s Kupwara parts, normal life resumed in Kashmir on Saturday after a daylong shutdown due to the call by Joint Resistance Leadership on the eve of Kashmir Martyrs’ day, all over the state.
All the shops, commercial establishments, government and private reopened today all over the state. The public and private transport were also back on the roads and there were no restrictions on civilian movement.
All the educational institutions opened across the Kashmir Valley after remaining shut for the day.
Meanwhile, a complete shutdown is being observed in North Kashmir’s Trehgam town against the killing of youth Khalid Gaffar in an army firing on July 11, 2018.
It is pertinent to mention, On July 13, 1931, 22 Kashmiris were gunned down by the army of autocratic Dogra ruler after the people rose against Maharaja’s rule for their rights. Every year, July 13 is being observed as a state holiday in Kashmir.
