JRL calls for shutdown today

The Joint Resistance Leaders (JRL) Thursday appealed people to observe complete shutdown on May 17 (Friday) against the gruesome killings of innocent civilians Arshad Ahmad Dar (Pattan), Rayees Ahmad Dar (Pulwama) and Nayeem Ahmad Shah (Baderwah) at the hands of Indian forces during the holy month of Ramadan.

The JRL appealed people especially youth to maintain peace and discipline while leading the protest march after Friday prayers.

Blaming India for turning J&K into shambles and a war field where people suffer from a deep sense of insecurity, the JRL said, “Our life, honour and all belongings are at stake.”
JRL appealed the Imams and Khateebs to apprise the subjugated people about the ongoing wave of repression at the hands of forces.

They also appealed people especially youth to maintain discipline and dignity during the peaceful protests.
Expressing its grave concern on volatile situation where killing and maiming of people has become a norm, the JRL appealed UN Secretary General to take strong note of the gross violation of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir and help resolve it in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the people.
