  • Hurriyat leadership has called for a two-day lockdown in parts of J&K, to mark the death anniversary of Afzal Guru
  • The Joint Resistance Leadership (JLF) has called for a complete shutdown on February 9 and February 11
  • Shouldn't the pro-Afzal league be put behind bars?

In an appalling turn of events, the Hurriyat leadership has called for a two-day complete lockdown in parts of Jammu and Kashmir, to mark the death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Muhammad Afzal Guru. Afzal Guru, a resident of Doabgah suburb in Kashmir’s north-western town of Sopore, was hanged in Delhi’s Tihar jail on February 9, 2013.  

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JLF) has called for a complete shutdown on February 9 and February 11, to protest against the hanging of Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Bhat. JRL said that massive protests should be staged across Kashmir during both the days.

Furthermore, the shocking statement by the 'Afzal gang' comes merely a few hours after Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists staged an attack outside a hospital in Jammu and Kashmir to free a Pakistani terrorist from custody. Naveed Jutt, the LeT terrorist from Pakistan who was caught in Kulgam in south Kashmir in 2014, managed to escape with the assailants. Two J&K policemen were martyred following the attack in Srinagar’s biggest hospital — SMHS hospital.
