Srinagar, Police on Wednesday foiled the protest march of Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) and detained its chairperson Farooq Ahmed Dar along with several traders who tried to march towards to the United Nations Military observer group office Sonwar.
The protest march was held against atrocities by “Buddhist terrorists” in Mayanmar.
Holding placards and shouting slogans, traders assembled at the Press Enclave to lodge protest and hold a sit-in. As soon as the protesters tried to march towards UNMOGIP Sonwar, police detained them, a KEA statement said. The protesting traders including Dar were released later in the day. Talking to reporters, Farooq Ahmed Dar expressed grief over the silence maintained by world community and said that Rohingya Muslims have right to defend and pay in equal terms to these killers. He said that if authorities in Myanmar failed to protect Muslim community, then it will have dire consequences.
“They are killing, raping women and razing houses to ground, and it is obligatory for Muslim Ummah to come to the rescue of their brethren in Myanmar,” he said
