Braid-cutting: Puppet Govt hiding ‘failure’ by cracking whip on protesters, says Mirwaiz


SRINAGAR, Oct 09 (TNS): Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Monday said the puppet state government was hiding its “failure” to curb braid-cutting by resorting to use of force on protesters.

“While entire Kashmir is up in arms against the shameful assault on the dignity of its women, ruling regime instead of resolving this issue keeps resorting to its standard dictatorial moves of curbing resistance leadership and detaining them and imposing curfews & restrictions,” tweeted Mirwaiz.

He said that government and police have “failed” to stop braid-cutting cases in Kashmir.

“Govt & its forces especially police have failed to crack the rising cases of braid chopping in Kashmir and to hide its failures, it keeps resorting to cracking its whip on braid chopping protests, jailing resistance leadership & imposing curfews &restrictions to harass people.”
