SRINAGAR:J&K Police on Thursday evening issued a statement: APPEAL.
The statement while referring to mass protests on past Fridays observed that speeches delivered on Fridays – the important day for Muslims – need not to be “provocative”.
The statement is being reproduced verbatim for larger public interest
It has been observed for last few Fridays that after the culmination of Friday prayers miscreants force the people to assemble on the Chowks and roads; thus obstructing the normal traffic.
Many a times these gatherings are manipulated to pelt stones upon the police/security force deployments.
In order to avoid such situations the parents are requested not to allow their children to take part in such activities.
Youth are advised not to fell prey to such machinations.
The Imams and Khateebs are also requested not to deliver provocative speeches so that the situation is not exploited by vested interests.
