Normalcy returning to Kashmir: Home Secy Mehrishi

New Delhi: The Centre on Monday said the situation in Kashmir was slowly returning to normalcy and hoped that Eid-ul-Zuha festival on Tuesday would pass off peaceful in the valley.
“Situation in Kashmir is gradually returning to normalcy and we hope that Eid-ul-Zuha will pass off peaceful,” Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi told reporters here.
Mehrishi’s comment came amidst the Jammu and Kashmir government’s decision to impose “curfew-like” restrictions to prevent any outbreak of violence during Eid.
The decision to impose restrictions on assembly of large number of people has been taken in view of the call by separatists for a march to the local offices of the United Nations tomorrow.
Unrest in Kashmir Valley has been continuing ever since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8.
The deadly violence has left 76 people, including two police personnel, dead and more than 10,000 others injured.

    Yeah normalcy is returning by imposing the harshest curfew on the most important festival of Eid and that too for 5% trouble makers. Counting the dead only 3 people died on Eid taking the toll to 83. Remember no vehicle was troched, no public property was destroyed.

    Compare this with Bangalore where 10 buses were torched by mob/protesters. How many dead, you can guess.
