Srinagar: restrictions in two areas ahead of protests over Rohingya persecution

Authorities imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar in view of protests called by separatist groups against the alleged atrocities on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar

Srinagar: Authorities on Friday imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar in view of protests called by separatist groups against the alleged atrocities on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

“Restrictions are in place in the Nowhatta police station and Urdu Bazar post areas as a precautionary measure," a police official said. Separatists Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Yasin Malik and Syed Ali Shah Geelani have called for peaceful protests across the Valley after Friday prayers against the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

The Rohingya, branded illegal immigrants in Myanmar and mostly denied citizenship, make up the vast majority of the dead and displaced since 2012. Due to the ongoing bout of violence, thousands of them have fled to neighbouring countries either by land or boat.
