Separatists call for shutdown against braid chopping incidents

Separatists today called for a shutdown in Kashmir on Monday against incidents of braid chopping in the state.

In a statement, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik said the braid chopping incidents were part of a "well-thought out" conspiracy.

"It is a big challenge for us as dignity of women folk is at stake," they said and appealed people to observe complete shutdown against the humiliation meted to women.

"Let us convey a message to these miscreants that in no way we will give up our resistance and will pursue the right to self-determination movement," they added.
