Meanwhile, chairman of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani has asked people to organise protests against the the BJP-PDP government, whom he accused of “changing the demographic status of the state on the instructions of the RSS”.

“On the instructions of RSS, the coalition government is using all the tactics to change the demographic status of the Kashmir,” Geelani said.

“After the new government took over, the human right violations against the people have increased manifold,” Geelani added.

He also slammed the Mufti government for not releasing political prisoners before Eid and urged the people of the Valley to celebrate Eid with austerity “as many people are languishing in jails”. Geelani also asked people to organise protests after Eid prayers against the state government’s policies.

“The protest should be held for half an hour so that the world will get a message against the atrocities and illegal occupation of India,” he said.

    The demography of Kashmir had been changed rather forcefuly and inhumanly by the stan inspired Muslims of Kashmir who in a vicious stroke of "Ethnic Cleansing" cleaned the Kashmir valley of the Pandits who wer killed, maimed, raped or forcefuly converted - so Geelani you and your Islam is nothing but a big lie.

          The Indian Parliament should p a law that any organization that advocates separatist activities should be declared illegal and shut down. Also anyone who is holding stani or IS flag during any public demonstrations should be shot dead

            Untill and unless govt authorizes shooting of people responsible for these kinds of activities, these will happen. The guys should be shot in public. Separate law for muslims, vote bank politics and selfish political leaders are quite responsible for this. Action must be taken before it becomes another cremia.
