It is 51th consecutive day of mass civil anti-India uprising in Kashmir and pro-freedom rallies continue to be held across Valley.

Unlike hot days of July, a few past days witnessed drizzle, however, incessant rains lashed valley on Sunday. But it did not deter people from holding pro-freedom rallies which passed off peacefully.

Correspondent reports coming from South Kashmir’s Kulgam district said that despite bad weather, thousands of people from adjoining areas reached Kansoo Ashmuji where a mass rally was addressed by several local pro-freedom leaders.

“Rains forced people to stay home, however, by mid-day, rains stopped and people started marched towards Kansoo,” reports said.

They informed that thousands of people offered Zuhr Namaz in open near Government run 10+2 School after which Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Kulgam chief Mohammad Shaban Dar, his deputy Fayaz Ahmad Rather and another local leader Mohammad Ramzan Shaikh addressed the rally.

“It was cent percent rally,” report said, “there was no disturbance at all.”

The leaders asserted that people “need to be vigilant”. “Unity will fail the nefarious designs of the enemy,” they told the rally, “the freedom movement demands steadfastness.”

The rally culminated around 4:30 PM, local reports said.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people assembled in the Central Jamia Masjid of Ajas in Bandipora in North Kashmir.

Local sources said that rains continued in the area for whole day so people preferred to stay inside the Jamia Masjid located in Shaheed Farooq Chowk of Ajas.

Reports said that Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani telephonically addressed the pro-freedom rally which started following Zuhr Namaz.

Geelani impressed upon people to remain steadfast. Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Bandipora had reached Ajas to address the people. “It ended around 4 PM.”
