At several places in Kashmir, people came out in groups to celebrate Pakistan’s win over India in the Champions Trophy final. At some places, youths clashed with security personnel after throwing crackers into their camps.

In Srinagar, youths burst crackers, waved Pakistani flags and raised pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans. At Fatehkadal and Sakidafar in Srinagar and in Anantnag, police and paramilitary personnel used teargas shells to disperse youths throwing firecrackers into their camps.

In Tral, a large number of men and women took to the streets after Pakistan’s win. Eyewitnesses said there were victory parades in most Tral villages. In the town, a huge gathering raised anti-India slogans.

In Shopian and Khudwani in Kulgam, militants are said to have fired in the air in celebration, though this could not be verified. Celebrations were also reported from Sopore, Baramulla and other parts of north Kashmir.

As a precaution, gates of the NIT-Srinagar campus were closed at 5 pm. Last year, out-of-town students at the institute had clashed with local students during an India-Pakistan match.

      Why are Indian Muslims, including Bollywood Khans,quiet when a Muslim fellow says it is fun to kill Hindus? Or when IS caliph says that Islam has always been a religion of war and never a religion of peace?

        Can any Muslim tell us what mohamed contributed to humanity? Tell me just three qualities/teachings of his that are relevant and useful today and which Muslim majority nations ( name just 3 out of 57) practice them? Please note that I have severely downgraded my standards- from 5 to 3. During ramzan, I am sure most Muslims can answer this easily

          Wonderful people, these Mohamed followers. And seculars want us to treat them with respect and dignity.

              Mohammed (peace be upon him) came when no one was a Muslim on the face of this earth. He came with the religion of peace and as a result u see more than a billion people today who accepted Islam. Islam is not only a religion to follow but a complete way to find peace and has got the solutions for the problems of mankind. If u see any problem in today's life come with it and I will provide u a solution to it from the teachings of Mohammed. U can very well creticise any teachings of Islam and I will answer that to u.

                Kashmiris were celebrating and the BJP in Government was watching helplessly. Cowards and power hungry is what the Party with a difference is.
