Normal life in Kashmir was disrupted on Monday with shops and business establishments remaining closed in almost every part of the valley due to a strike called by Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front ( JKLF). The strike call was supported by every pro-freedom party and amalgam including Hurriyat Confrence (G).
While public transport remained off the roads, few private cars could be seen plying on the roads in the city and other major towns of the Valley. Most of the educational institutions remained closed including colleges and Kashmir University.
JKLF had on December 3 called for a general strike on the eve of International Human Rights Day commemorated worldwide on Monday to protest against life imprisonment awarded to two of its senior leaders by a TADA court in Jammu.
