Joint Resistance Leadership calls for Kashmir shutdown, UN march on Friday
Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Wednesday called for a shutdown and march to the UN office on Friday, July 21 to protest against the “killings of Kashmiris, especially the genocide of our youth by government forces”.

In a statement, the JRL said that they would lead a peaceful sit-in protest outside the UN office in Sonwar after congregational prayers.

The leadership appealed to people from all walks of life to participate in the sit-in after Juma prayers, which they said would be jointly offered at Astan-e-Aliya Syed Yaqoob Sahab Sonwar.

The sit-in would be organized to register protest and deep resentment against all killings of Kashmiris, especially the systematic genocide of our youth by the state forces and their persecution and illegal detention, said the JRL.

The protest would also be organized against arbitrary curfews and restrictions in the valley, beating and injuring of people, curbs and persecution of leadership to the extent of disallowing them from participating in family funerals by force.

“A complete shutdown will be observed on that day,” said the JRK.

“The sit in will urge the UN to ask Govt of India to stop the massacre of people in Kashmir and a reminder for it to fulfill its commitments made to the people of J&K.”
