Watch | For Kashmiris, No Wishes From Home This Eid

Kashmiris gathered at Jantar Mantar on August 12 not to celebrate but to ‘observe’ Eid on an unhappy note.

People of Jammu and Kashmir, those who are based in Delhi, gathered at Jantar Mantar on the occasion of Eid -Ul-Adha on August 12. The gathering was not to celebrate but to ‘observe’ Eid on an unhappy note, they said.

Those from the region, including a young woman from Ladakh, said that they are not happy with the government’s lockdown in the state. With a blanket ban on communication, Kashmiris have not been able to make any contact with their families for over a week. So on the occasion of Eid, they gathered together to share food with fellow Kashmiris.

Organisers of the gathering said they were not affiliated to any political group.
