Some elements are seen damaging the public and private property by throwing stones at shopkeepers, private vehicles, Ambulances, even during the “relaxation time” without any reason.
“These youths don’t listen to anyone. They won’t ask you to switch off the lights, even when there is no blackout call by Hurriyat. They will just come, throw a stone, break the glasses and will leave,” said a resident at Nowgam.
The situation has turned grave forcing many to write letters to newspapers narrating the ordeals of their areas.
Civil Society member and wife of senior Hurriyat leader, Hameeda Nayeem said some people are trying to lead the present movement towards a civil war. “We appeal people to nab these elements and expose them at whose behest they are doing it,” she said.
Noted political expert professor Noor Ahmed Baba said the government forces are curtailing the movement of people and when the people do the same and not allow people with emergencies to move; then you are alienating your own people, which will surely lead to a Civil war.
