Kashmir police use 'palette guns' to drive out Muharram processions despite ban


Bangla Hunt Desk: In Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, the police took stern action against people who took out Moharram processions without the permission of the administration. Police fired tear gas and used pellet guns to disperse the crowd on Saturday. The police action injured 19 people who took part in the Muharram procession. Some of the injuries were reported to be serious.

On Saturday, some people in the Bemina area of ​​Srinagar took out a procession on the day of Muharram in defiance of the Supreme Court ban. As the procession approached Bemina Chowk, a scuffle broke out between the protesters and police. The police try to convince everyone, but no one listens. Then the police were forced to use force.

A police official said the procession was taken out in some areas of Srinagar, ignoring the ban imposed by Corona. Attempts were made to take out processions in places other than Bemina in Srinagar. Police said Section 144 was imposed in several areas of Srinagar and Budgam to disperse the Muharram procession. Large numbers of police were deployed in the area to prevent any untoward incident.

He added that on Sunday, the tenth day of Muharram, a ban was imposed to maintain law and order. On the eighth day of Muharram, processions would take place in these areas. But since the rise of terrorism in 1990, Muharram processions have been banned. In Kashmir, separatists spread their propaganda through Muharram.
