Srinagar: Expressing serious concern over the rising incidents of braid cutting in Kashmir, and government’s “failure” to stop these incidents, Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Thursday staged a protest in Srinagar.
Scores of workers of various factions took part in the protest staged at Abi Guzar lane near the City Centre Lal Chowk.
The protesters were holding placards with messages urging an end to braid-cutting attacks. “Stop Braid Chopping”, “Attacks on dignity of daughter not acceptable” and “Attacks on Kashmiri women and braid chopping is a ploy to intimidate Kashmiris” were some of messages written on placards.
Hair of over 100 women and young girls has been mysteriously chopped off across the Valley during past month.
These girls and women have told their families and police that unknown persons cut their hair after knocking them unconscious with some spray.
