Srinagar, September 08 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown is being observed in Badgam town, today, against a raid by the sleuths of India’s National Investigation Agency on the residence of senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi.
Normal life was affected in the town today due to the shutdown call issued by Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi. All shops, business establishments and educational institutions are closed in the town.
The NIA sleuths had yesterday conducted a raid at the residence of Agha Al-Moosvi which continued till late evening. The NIA officials had to flee in a hurry after hundreds of people raising pro-freedom and anti-India slogans held massive protests and stormed into the residence of the APHC leader. The protesters said that the NIA officials had misbehaved with Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi and his family and harassed them.
Meanwhile, the spokesman of Anjuman Shari Shian in a statement in Srinagar denounced the raid by the Indian NIA at the residence of its Chairman, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi.
He said that such raids could not break the resolve of freedom-loving people. “We warn the Indian government of dire consequences if all these harassing measures are not stopped forthwith. If these unnecessary raids are not stopped, people will take to streets and resent these arbitrary measures with their full might and will,” he added.
The spokesperson said Agha Syed Hassan hails from a respectable family who is respected by people of entire Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, protests were held in different parts of Valley including Srinagar, Budgam, Chadoora, Sonawari, Hasanabad and other areas against the raid on Agha Al-Moosvi’s residence.
