Martyrs Day: Restrictions imposed in parts of Srinagar
Srinagar: Government on Saturday imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar in view of the Martyrs Day to prevent any protest.
Restrictions were imposed as precautionary measures to prevent any law and order problem after Resistance leaders called for a complete shutdown to commemorate July 13 as Martyrs Day.
Meanwhile, senior National Conference leader Choudhary Mohammad Ramzan on Saturday visited Mazar-e-Shuhada at Handwara and offered Fateha and also paid floral tributes to the 13th July, 1931 martyrs. He was accompanied by the party workers.
Speaking on the occasion he said that on this day we must resolve to rise above self and help in creating a tolerant society where everyone can grow in a free democratic atmosphere.
Earlier the Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik, in his message on the occasion of Martyrs’ Day, has called for collective efforts from all sections of the society to secure rapid growth and development of the state on all fronts.
The Martyr’s Day is commemorated every year on July 13 to pay homage to the people killed in firing by forces of Dogra ruler Maharaja Hari Singh on the day in 1931.
