Lawyers marched against braid chopping incidents
Srinagar, Oct 11,: Lawyers community Valley Wednesday staged a massive protest against unabated braid chopping incidents across Kashmir Valley. They carried out a march from High Court Complex that culminated peacefully at Clock Tower Lal Chowk.
The march was led by High Court Bar Association President Advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom. The protesting lawyers were carrying placards and banners accusing government of resorting to sponsored terrorism.

We want that braid-chopping must end immediately, the fear it has created among Kashmiris must come to an end so that Kashmiri women continue their daily chores with absolute freedom,” Qayoom told reporters during the protest rally at Ghanta Ghar in Lal Chowk.
