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.
