Srinagar, Sep 06: Police Wednesday foiled the protest march of Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) and detained scores of its members after their tried to march towards the commercial Hub Lal Chowk here to mark a protest against the ‘butchering of Burma Muslims’.
KEA president Farooq Ahmad Dar along with scores of its members assembled at Srinagar’s Press Enclave and chanted slogans against the atrocities being committed on the Muslims of Burma.
The protesters questioned over the silence maintained by the world community over the Burmese action against the Muslims there.
Protesting traders termed the atrocities on Muslims in Burma as ‘painful’.
They said that the world community must not act as mute spectator and should pressurize the government there to stop such heart wrenching violence.
Farooq Dar while talking to the reporters here said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with the authorities of Burma but unfortunately didn’t utter a single word over the Burmese action of ‘barbarism’.
He said that the Muslims must unite over such atrocities to tackle the prevailing anti-Muslim situation across the globe.
Dar said that the people of Kashmir don’t act as mute spectator over such actions against Muslims in any nook and corner of the world. “We will always take streets against anti-Muslim acts,” he said.
Meanwhile, the protesters later tried to march towards commercial Hub Lal Chowk to mark their protest against Burmese action.
However, Police didn’t allow them to carry out their protest and detained scores of its members at Srinagar’s Press Enclave. (KNS)
