Braid chopping: Central University Kashmir students hold protests


The students of Central University of Kashmir, Nowgam campus on Thursday staged a protest demonstration against the increasing braid-chopping incidents in the Valley.

The protest was held inside the CUK Nowgam campus with the students seeking an end to the mysterious braid-chopping incidents which have increased over the past one month.

Carrying banners and playcards, the students chanted pro-freedom and anti-India slogans. The playcards read: ‘end mysterious braid chopping’, ‘bring culprits to book’, and ‘end molestation of women in Kashmir,’ among others.

Students also raised slogans against the incumbent government and the police for their incompetence in nabbing the culprits. “Police do not leave a single stone unturned when they nab a stone pelter, why have turned so incompetent now,” a student told the protesting students’ gathering.

The call for protests was given by the Resistance Leadership led by Syed Ali Geelani urging students to assemble in their respective educational institutes and protest against the mysterious braid chopping incidents.
