    Kashmiri separatist leaders placed under house arrest


    Authorities Monday placed all senior Kashmiri separatist leaders under house arrest to maintain law and order during the congregational Eid prayers in Srinagar.

    "These measures have been taken to ensure that nobody disturbs peace and tranquility in the city on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr," a police official said.

    Those placed under house arrest include Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Shabir Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik and Muhammad Nayeem Khan among others.

    Authorities have been preventing the separatists from addressing large public gatherings after the summer unrest of 2010 in which 107 people were killed in clashes between unruly mobs and security forces.

    Irate mobs had also indulged in large-scale arson and violence on the day of Eid in 2010.

    The central and state governments had blamed the local separatist leaders for inciting people to resort to violence in 2010.

    On Eid-ul-Fitr, thousands of locals gather at Eidgahs across the state for thanksgiving at the end of the month of Ramadan.

    Finally some brain being used by authorities. We need to take such pre-emptive measures to avoid situations like Mumbai violence.

    Blast them and make them martyrs ? To blast anyone you need a setup like China where the state can regulate the flow of information. Not possible in India.

    People go to their places of worship or celebrate their festivals for peace and happiness. But these scum bags use these opportunities to spread hate, terrorise and spew venom. The interesting part is they never miss the opportunity.
