Kashmiris protest in Delhi against violence in Valley

The protesters also urged that steps should be taken for early repeal of Armed Forces Special Powers Act and other 'black' laws.

Kashmiri families living in the capital,including businessmen,professionals and students on Sunday staged a silent sit-in here against the recent violence across the valley and appealed for a dialogue at the earliest to settle the issue.

The protesters also urged that steps should be taken for early repeal of Armed Forces Special Powers Act and other ‘black’ laws.

“Life is completely paralysed in Kashmir. We need the solution of the problem at the grassroot level,” said Saleem Altaf,a doctor.

The general feeling among the protesters was that a dialogue process should start where the commoners’ demands are heard by both the governments at the Centre and the state.
