TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Indian forces have put restrictions on movement in Jammu and Kashmir as the mosques were locked across the valley in the wake of Friday prayers, a report said.


The Muharram mourning processions were also not allowed across the valley, Pakistani daily the New reported.

The restrictions are placed every Friday in the Kashmir Valley as the Indian forces fear protests at big mosques and shrines.

The Kashmir Valley has been reeling under movement and communication curbs since New Delhi announced its decision to revoke Article 370, and bifurcating the state into two UTs.

Many Kashmiri people sustained injuries when the forces attacked them as they were out breaking the restrictions holding protests.

However, with the passage of time, restrictions were lifted in phases from many parts of the Valley.

Friday prayers have not been allowed at any of the major mosques in Kashmir for the past one month now.

The lockdown has entered the fifth week.

Compared to the past few days, fewer private vehicles were seen on the roads on Friday. The state government’s efforts to open schools have not borne fruit as parents have kept their children at home due to apprehensions about their safety.

The officials said attendance remained thin in many government offices due to lack of public transport.
